German Content Management System
Do you need a multilingual content management system that works with German?
ExtraDigital have been building multilingual websites including German for many years and have used a wide variety of CMS platforms. We can help you choose the perfect German CMS.
Multi-Lingual Content Management Systems
When choosing a CMS, it’s important to consider a number of areas including:
- Support for other languages
- Is it open source
- Features and extensions
Support for Other Languages
While many CMS platforms work well with English and popular European languages like German they lack support for more complex languages like Chinese and Arabic.
While your current plans might just be for an English and separate German website you may decide to expand further afield in the future so it’s best to pick a platform that can help you do this.
You don’t want to have to invest in moving all your websites to a new CMS as you expand into new markets.
Choosing an open source CMS means more freedom for you to work with different teams as you aren’t locked into a closed system. This allows you to keep your costs down.
Open source platforms also often provide many more extensions and extra features allowing you to customise your websites. Plus, they can be much quicker at adapting to new opportunities online like:
- Responsive design
- Advances in structured data
- Integration with other systems
CMS Features and Extension
As highlighted above you want to have access to some of the best features and extension to maximise the effectiveness of your website.
For targeting a German audience, you need to look for CMS extensions that will work with that language. Be wary of auto translation tools as these can lead to poor quality results that will alienate your German customers rather than engage with them.
