Language settings

WordPress can manage content in multiple languages. This functionality is provided by means of the Languages tab in the administration area.

In this tab, it is possible to add an additional language. It is recommended to create your website in the two languages of EPFL, thus French and English.

In the right-hand side, the “enabled” languages are visible. It is also where they can be deleted.

The language with a star is the main language of the pages. If your site has been ventilated under an instance, you should not change the default language.

The main language is not displayed in the url, but the second language is.

For example, for the Services instance, which is in French by default:

  • https://www.epfl.ch/campus/services/ressources-informatiques/     which is the url in French
  • https://www.epfl.ch/campus/services/en/it-services/     during the switch to English
