This solution is perfect for companies that want to broaden their marketing towards candidates speaking other languages. With this smart solution, you will be able to add similar career sites with translated content, or create a completely unique experience for different languages. All while keeping your candidates in one account.
This solution is not for:
Companies that want to have separate branding and logo on their different career sites. In those cases, we recommend using a group solution. Our support team can help you get started.
Enable this setting in Skillcenter to get started. Then go to Settings.
Add the additional languages that you know you want to use. By adding and saving this, Teamtailor creates this language for you to use in message templates, questions etc. This does not automatically add any content.
Your Content section has now gotten a new view, where you will see all of your career sites. Right now you only have the default one. To add a new site in the language you selected earlier, click Add career site in the top right corner.
You will now get two options, to either clone an existing site or create a blank one.
Clone an existing site means that you get to select a site to clone, and all blocks will be cloned. This means that you will be able to work from an existing page, just having to translate the content on this new page. You'll be able to remove blocks from the cloned page if you want to.
Create a blank site means that you won't automatically won't have any content blocks on your pages. You will be able to add any blocks and basically start from scratch in this new language.
When creating a new site and naming it, you'll also have the possibility to add an emoji, to make it easier to separate from the other sites. When editing the site, the emoji will be visible to show you and your team which site you are working on, so be sure to select something distinctive.
Before going live, please make sure that you have completed the next step in this article (adding translations). That will ensure that the candidates get a fully translated experience on your career site. Once you're done and happy with the result, it's time to go live with this site. Go to the All sites view, and click the three dots. Set the site to "Active".
The URL will automatically be your current domain, with a two letter language code following it. For example: careers.example.com/fr for a French site.
Your career site will automatically link to the other sites in the footer. You are of course also always able to link to them more prominently on your career site by adding a Tile & link block or CTA button.
Add translations to Settings
Go to Settings to add language versions in the different sections. You'll see a language tab at the top of the page, where you can switch languages and enter information. Translating these things will make sure that your candidates get a completely localized experience, all through your career site, Connect and the application process.
Add translated content to:
You can see an overview over which sections need a translation, like here in Questions. To make the experience as smooth as possible, make sure to add the translations to all of them.
To make sure that the job ad written in another language gets content in the correct language, you need to add which language this job ad is written in. This setting can be found in the Job posting section of your job. This setting also determines which career site the job shows up on.
After adding this, you will also see which questions you can use that have been translated to that particular language. This will make sure that the application form shows that question in the correct language.
When a candidate applies through that specific language career site, it will be visible on the candidate in the bottom application bar. The candidate will automatically receive automatic emails and communication in their preferred language, if that has been added by you in Settings.
You will now also have a new filter in Candidates, which lets you filter on languages.
Tip: Select your most used filters and add them as a segment, to be able to get a quick overview next time you're searching for candidates.
That's all! Thanks for reading and good luck with your career sites. Please let us know if you have any questions.
