Not Able To Enable 2 Languages On Site

I need to have 2 languages for the site at https://tomkenyon.ca/ I have followed the video here https://youtube.com/watch?v=tjWBb6k4sg4 but that is for an older version of PB. I have installed French Canada as a 2nd language in the Joomla languages. I don't see it available in the PB languages. I created a menu and a home page for each language and added the language switcher module. I also created categories for each language and assigned them to the pages. The language switcher will only show the English flag though. When I go to the page settings for French, I cannot assign the French language to the properties - see image at https://tomkenyon.ca/language.jpg It only allows English as the choice of language. What have I not got right in adding the 2nd language? Thanks

Hi Dina,

follow also my text tips > https://www.joomshaper.com/documentation/helix-framework/multilingual-site

No offence, but Setting Multilanguage in Joomla is Joomla task (J! core feature). The component does not matter, you can always start/try from articles.

Try again, I can help only as an exception if you fall again.

Beside Joomla has HELPER > click on Multilingual Status button. It's worth using if it's there.

Thanks Paul. This is my 2nd attempt at a 2 language site. The first was done sevearl years ago and I might not have done it entirely correctly back then, but it worked. I will start again using the resources you sent along, but keep the ticket open incase I run into any issues.
