Chinese language and Joomla

Postby bobdobelina » Tue Mar 27, 2018 11:24 am

I'm building a Chinese language website for a client. We're duplicating their English site and replacing all text with Mandarin.

Joomla itself will remain English as I'll need to find my way around when making changes.

My question is, does anyone know if Chinese search engines will be able to understand the source code if it is still western? All titles and description tags will be mandarin but obviously, words such as 'meta-description' will be English. Is it possible to mix the two or do I need to encode in Mandarin?

Any help would be appreciated.

Source code is the same whatever the language used for contents.
Install the last Chinese lang pack for your clients and switch to English when you work on the site.
