Most of the CMS have problems with handling Multilanguage pages and this happens because they did not consider it as a feature in the first releases. The same happens with Umbraco and we will see in this tutorial how to create a 1-1 Multilanguage website.

A lot of developers do not know what 1-1 Multilanguage website is and they just add a link to each language which leads to the home page of the selected language. For me this is wrong because if a user finds a page and he clicks the link to change the language he expects to see the selected contents in the selected language.

There are a lot of different approaches in order to create a 1-1 Multilanguage site. In this tutorial I will show how I develop a Multilanguage site which has to support localization for all the contents of the page. This means that we will be able to have localized contents for static texts that we will have in our template but we will also have localized contents for the dynamic data that we manage from the Back Office.
