Multi-language Blog

Multi languages features like Landing pages & website have.

I think it's essential to have a blog in multiple languages.

@Niel we're working on loosening up restrictions so you can have different templates, comment settings, Google AMP settings, and social share settings. We're also working on making it easier to combine existing blog posts together. 

 

This is definitely still a work in progress, hence the "in beta" status Smiley Very Happy It's my team's top priority and we'll be sending out updates as soon as possible! Thank you for your patience.

@Tavis Tags and Authors aren't in the beta yet, but they're in development! 

Apr 28, 2020

Sorry @dgil89! I missed your request but see it now - you should be all set.

@dgil8 when you're brought to the Blog Settings, click on the  Language option in order to add a new language for this blog. Then you'll be able to set the settings for that language and go back to create a multi-language variation for a blog post:

Hi Community members,

 

I'm excited to say that we now have an early, beta version of multi-language Blog! 

 

This multi-language blog beta includes

  • Grouping of blog posts in the user interface (like you see when creating multi-language pages)
  • hreflang tags in the source code of blog posts which are grouped (good for SEO)
  • Separate email subscriptions for each blog language
  • Different page titles, meta descriptions for each language, managed in Blog Settings

Not yet included, but currently in development, support for multi-language: 

  • Authors
  • Tags

If you would like access to the beta version of multi-language blog, please message me here, or email me directly (svalsdottir@hubspot.com ) with your HubSpot portal ID number

 

I'll post again when I have another update to share.

Hello everybody, 

 

Just a quick update on multi-language blog!

 

This is still in development and is my team's #1 priority. We're very close to having a public beta available, and I'll update this post as soon as that's live so you know how to opt into it. We're planning on making the beta version available to you all in about a month. 

 

Thank you for your patience and support! We're looking forward to delivering this feature to you, and I'll post again as soon as I have an update.

This is in planning - thank you all for your patience!

 

Additional background and context for anyone interested:

Many have commented that it's weird for HubSpot's page tools to offer a multi-language option while the blog doesn't have that feature. I agree - it doesn't make sense Smiley Happy  The tools look very similar - and the management interface is completely identical across all content tools. But in the back end, the code bases are separate (necessary, as a blog (RSS feed) is inherently different from pages in how it behaves), and there were some other tools (related to the fact that the blog tool uses a single template) that need to be made multi-language friendly before the blog can become multi-language. That's why HubSpot website and landing pages have had the multi-language feature for quite some time while the blog has not. 

 

My team is eager to provide you with the best possible multi-language blog. We've spoken to many already about their multi-language needs, but we're always looking to hear from more customers. If you're willing to share your thoughts and experiences beyond the comments here (I've read them all!), please book a time to speak with me.

Hi, I'm encountering an error to some blog posts whenever I try to create a translated version.  When I click save it returns a 'Please try again' error and I cannot proceed.

Hi @Snaedis 

 

You've mentioned that blog settings can be set for each language.

Is it possible to set a different template for a specific language as well?

Because in the settings it says that I can only modify it on the English version.
