I'm wondering if anyone can offer advice on different ways to set up a translated section within a Wordpress site. I'm curious about case studies, professional advice and recommendations. I don't believe translation plugins can work in every scenario but I am considering those. I'm not sure about the project I am about to work on but I'm now just looking at options.
For example should I create categories according to language and duplicate pages with translated content? A part of me is considering tabs on each page that correspond to different language and content.
Any ideas or suggestions or proven effective, examples? Thanks in advance.
