Managing the language settings

These settings pertain to how your site identifies whether the user wants to see English content or French content. Sites must choose one of the following methods for determining this:

  • The English and French URLs will use a different domain
  • The English and French URLs will use a different path
  • A language component (either “en” or “fr”) will be added into the path to determine the language

This must be decided when requesting your site (Requesting your site) and is very difficult to change after your site has been created. The steps below are only some of the steps required in order to change the domain or path that is used to access your site, so please consult with IT before doing so.

These steps can also help you make sure your language settings are correct. If you experience difficulties accessing French content, please verify the settings before filing a request with IT.
