multi-lingual ikiwiki

I know I haven’t started writing yet, I’m already worried about technical issues. How can I handle writing in different languages here? I’ve seen the po plugin but it requires me to set a “Master language” for the whole system. Rather, I want to be able to set different master languages for each post.1 Because sometimes I start writing in French, some other times I start writing in English. Most of the time I don’t translate myselft. So translation isn’t really what I’m looking for.

If you’ve got any suggestion on how to solve this, you’re very welcome. Until then, I’ll just stick to tagging.


  1. You might wonder: what for? I’d like to add a lang="en|fr" attribute for each post, that would allow me for instance to enable hyphenation at line-breaks. ↩
