Virtual directories for multiple languages?

3 posts in this topic

I have a multilingual site and my default language is set to French. This means that all URLs are appearing as French (showing French meta tags) unless they have the ?language= variable added to the end of the URL.

 

www.mypage.com/english-product.htm (shows French meta tags)

www.mypage.com/english-product-htm?language=en (show English meta tags)

 

These 2 URLS point to the same page and in fact this is duplicate content, however the search engines see these as 2 different pages. The first one is wrong, and I want to remove it.

 

My question is this:

 

Is there a contribution for making URLs like this?

www.mypage.com/en/english-product.htm

 

I want directories for each language:

/en/

/fr/

/de/

and each directory will tell the search engines the language of the page.

 

I have seen other web sites with this URL structure, but I don't know how they are doing it and I haven't been able to find a contribution.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks.

 

Carolyn
