SPIP is designed to manage a multilingual website. We can distinguish several possibilities for what a multilingual website might mean:
- Having the language of the interface that adapts to the visitor (for example, displaying dates or writing words in the correct direction),
- Having content in multiple languages, not just the interface (for example a version of the site is in French, another in English),
- Or why not a mixture of both (interface in Arabic with text in French ...)
SPIP has various tools and syntaxes to achieve all these ends.
