Hi there!

I set up my website in English and now have finally figured out to enable multiligual content for Finnish and German. Translating the content works absoluetly fine and it is so convenient to switch languages.

There is only one problem I can't solve yet. When I switch languages the content and the menus will change as planned but not the theme stays the them.

The problem is though that the page name and the footer in my theme are in english right now and it would be great to load a different page type for translated content with a German or Finnish title head and footer repectifely. If I go to the translated site in the CMS and try to change the page type in the Behaviour tab it would let me do so. Does anybody have an idea how to achive this? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Did you fimd solution?

Also, language un template, after doctype declaration is hard coded to english "en" no matter on which language page is translated. It should be some variable there.

Unfortunately I didn't find a solution yet. I simply decided to leave things as such and only translate the content. This is obviously not the best solution but for now it works. It would be so simply if one could change the page type and than create a page type with a translated frame.
