There are many possible ways how to name your pages.

As a language switcher, you can use your index.html page with a flag picture with a link. Or an item in the main menu. The switcher is usually different from other items.

1. Create a new menu item that will link the user to another language version.

English version. Click to move to the Czech version.

2. Using a language switcher will get the user to another language version.

Czech version. Clock to move to the English version.

3. Use the same link on every page to connect each version.

Choose the correct page in the link settings.
