As you might know, I’m a native Spanish speaker, and this is an English-language blog. It has served me well for over 15 years and counting, and still does.
However, most of my writing have been done lately in Spanish. Not because of anything special; they were just extended status updates in Facebook. But somehow they got widespread recognition. These are posts pertaining to some pressing situation of the Paraguayan or Latin American context at some particular moment, so writing or translating them into English wouldn’t make any sense.
Some people suggested that I should open a Spanish-language blog. I could keep using Facebook but I don’t like the platform to begin with, and furthermore it has serious limitations for serious blogging. Well, I already have my static personal site in Spanish and this English-language blog, so what should I do? Just setting up another blog would be a maintenance burden; enough with what I already have. The obvious solution would be to make this blog bilingual; that is, adding Spanish-language content. I could do that, but how?
That is, how can I make this blog bilingual without causing significant disruption? An obvious solution could be adding a multilingual plugin to my WordPress setup; and I’m now hesitating between Polylang and Language Switcher, but I’m not sure. In fact I’m not sure of how could I proceed with implementing this change. Any ideas or suggestions? That would be welcome.
