We have a multilingual website, Swedish (default), English, Norwegian.

Google Analytics tracking code (the same code for all languages) is present on all pages.

Problem: We get data for the default language in Analytics, but can't find any data for the other languages pages. The english language is prefixed with /en, Norwegian with /nb. We know we have traffic, but it doesn't show in GA.

So you have a site with 3 different languages and each language is accessible by mysite.com/en/englishpage or mysite.com/nb/norwegianpage and mysite.com/se/swedishpage? Do those pages record any pageviews? (Test that out with Google Analytics Debugger for google Chrome) All those pages have the same exact google-analytics tracking code? Do you see any results under Audience > Demographics > Language And how is the language set, do users have to do it themselves? or is it set by the website? – ErikdR May 3 '12 at 9:20
Where in the reports are you looking? If the language identifier is in the URL do a quick search in your content report to confirm they're being captured. If they are, you'll want to look into segmenting that out via filters, advanced segments or new UA numbers. – Chords May 3 '12 at 13:26
The problem is that we're not getting any data for the two foreign languages. I've tried searching, but no results. Did not know about the debugger, will try that. – Hans Nilsson May 4 '12 at 15:35
On which reports are you expecting to see data about the foreign languages? – Stephen Ostermiller Dec 14 '13 at 14:21
