Hi, I have a site in french and the client wants an english version of the site but I don't want to re-build the site from scratch. I want to install a network of multi-site for ease of updating content in both language without having to login on 2 different wordPress platform. I will put the english in my multi-site network in a sub-directory. The main language adress is “www.groupeespaces.ca” and I will put the english in “www.groupeespaces.ca/en” Is it simple to migrate with backup buddy the whole site (pages, content, plugins, themes, css, etc...) ? I use Thesis 2.0 theme and I made quite a lot of adjustment in the template styling.

Hi Julie,

Multisite functionality with BackupBuddy is in beta so is not officially supported, so if don't definitely need a multisite that may actually be better doing them as standalone sites.

O, this is too bad. I want to use a multisite network because I like the plugin multisite language switcher to go from one language to the other. What would you suggest I do for a bilingual blog ?

Hi Julie,

Sorry, I don't have as much experience with multilanguage sites and the best ways to set them up. Someone else on the forum might have used them though.
