Guide to using WordPress test

Hello! This document is a guide to using WordPress to translate content into different languages on neurosymptoms.org

The first thing to do is let the technology partner, CogniHealth, know that you would like to start translating and they will do the initial setup to enable you to add content for your language. You can do this by emailing Pooja – pooja@cognihealth.uk. Pooja will be your point of contact for any questions related to WordPress.

To select pages to translate, click on Pages on WordPress.

Tip: When you want to translate a page, we recommend opening the page twice so you have two tabs with the same content to make translating it easier. (Double screens is even better!).

Translating Home Page

  • Translating first section of the home page
    • Open the page titled: home-overview
    • Select the language you would like translate to by using the icon with English written next to it
    • To maintain design we have copied over the content. Please place your cursor at the start of the heading or paragraph and type your translation and then delete the english content.
