For our first recommended method we will be using the polylang plugin that you are able to find here:

http://www.wordpress.org/plugins/polylang

The plugin will add a Languages section to your site where you can select the languages to list as available to your visitors. Start by adding the native language as you want all languages including the language your posts are originally in. There will be no posts set to either languange and you should have an option at the top of the page to include all of the posts into the default language.

With that set up you can begin editing the posts to have a version in a different language. There are two methods to begin setting up the posts in your other languages you can either edit the post and on the top right there will be a plus icon next to the language flag or you can click the plus icon on the post you want to add to when viewing the list of your posts.

The second method you could use to translate your site would be the Google Language Translator plugin found here:

https://wordpress.org/plugins/google-language-translator

With the plugin installed and activated you would want to go under Settings, Google Language Translator and ensure that the Plugin status is checked for it to be active for the plugin to work properly. From that settings page you will be able to select the languages you want to translate your site into for your visitors. The translations for your site to become multilingual are automatically generated by Google with this method.
