Greetings to everyone...

 

The wife wants to make a home web site (photos, blog/commentary - the usual) that has two languages on the same pages (mixing English and Korean) - not two "separate but equal" sites in different languages as described in many discussions.

 

With the impending death of iWeb, what options do I have? If I read the Sandvox information correctly, they only offer the "make two copies in different languages" option.

 

Web hosting suggestions welcomed, too. I am currectly using a DynDNS service to allow remote access to files at home - I don't know if that affects web hosting setup or not. Most importantly, ease of use for the wife takes priority over extra features, if that alters anyone's recommendation...

    Sandvox has a very iWeb like GUI and has an option to change languages.  I've not used it but it would be a reasonable replacement for iWeb. 

     

    iWeb will still be viable for a long time to come and multi-languague sites can be created with the help of Language Switcher

    I think every modern web editing app will create pages in UTF-8 encoding, which is what is required to have multiple languages on the same page.  As long as what is on the page is created by the author, you should have no problem.  But things created by the app, like buttons to "make a comment" could be a different issue.
