Multi Language WP Site

Hi Experts,

I need to create a multi language website in WordPress, but the client will provide the translation. They do not want to use automated Google Translate.

How would I go about doing this? I am just starting with WordPress, but I was thinking along the lines of categories or tags. I want to avoid sub-domains because that will mean managing separate sites.

Any help will be appreciated.

yes I have done this here: www.designbysilke.com
I used the plugin Polylang
here: https://en-gb.wordpress.org/plugins/polylang/

it uses the locale to auto choose the language, but I also added 2 flags to choose the language.

once installed you have to create pages for each language.
and menus for each language.

when you list say the pages, you'll see a new column for each language so you can edit each page for each language.
so there is no translation as its all done by the admin.
