    Hi, again.
    I would like to build a two-language site, in which users could choose before browsing wether they wants to read pages in English or French.
    I assume I must build two pages per page, but I don’t see how can I (if I can) set menus and links to choose language with a simple flag in the home page.
    Thanks for any help.

    Read joomla documentation about multilingual support. Basically you can chose for each object (not just page – menu item) for which language if will show up.

    Thanks for the answer, Ivan. Anyway what I want to know is wether I can create twin pages (English and French), twin menus, … or, as I deduce from what I read in the link you gave me, I must build two sites, and link them through one of those plug-ins.
    This site http://www.sport-conrad.com/ is in English and German. In the home page you can find the flags to chose the languages, and you find the exact content in both languages.
    This other site http://www.parlamentovasco.euskolegebiltzarra.org/eu is in Basque and Spanish. When you choose language (top right corner ‘es‘ and ‘eu‘ buttons ) the URL changes its suffix ‘eu’ for the Basque version (Euskara) or ‘es‘ for the Spanish (EspaƱol) version. I’d like to do one of those, but I don’t know the structure. Thank you

    What you need is actually not related to themes. You need a plugin (if such exists) which allows WordPress to manage website in 2 or more languages.

    As far as I know, the most popular plugin for that is http://wpml.org/ It’s not free though. For all details, please ask their support.

    Regards
    Milos
