Offer Bilingual Membership Capabilities on Your Website

Bilingual capabilities are a standard requirement for our national Canadian and US clients. Membee’s features can be presented bilingually on your website to best meet the needs of your members.

To start, Membee integrates with your website by embedded widgets to the page. These widgets can present bilingual text in two different methodologies. The best solution is a combination of these two approaches. As we dive into these options, we’ll provide you with samples further down to see it for yourself!

Static Control Keeps The Text Fixed

The first approach is the static text control. This is where section names, instructional text, event descriptions, etc, are entered manually by you in both languages – such as in “English / French” format. The text doesn’t change or switch between languages, it stays stagnant and fixed.

In the example below, the bilingual text is highlighted and you will notice that:

  • The section title and instructional text are displayed with the static approach
  • The English text displays first and the French text is displayed after
  • The different languages are separated with a forward slash (/)

Dynamic Control Allows You to Toggle Between Languages

The second approach is the dynamic text control. Specific field names, captions, financial formatting, etc, display based on the language selected via a toggle between the languages. The translations are built into Membee’s system, which allows for dynamic control. The visitor has the ability to toggle which language they want to view on the fly.

As seen in the video below, you will notice that in the directory widget:

  • The language toggle is located at the top right corner of the widget in “Français” or “English”
  • When toggled to French, all the text is displayed in French
