The Titanic was built in Belfast, Ireland at the Harland & Wolff Shipyard. She was built under the Arroll Gantry pictured below, alongside her sister ship the Olympic.

She was built in Ireland, Belfast to be exact. When the outside was finished, the ship was sent to South Hampton to be "fitted" out which was when the furniture and other appointments were either built into the ship or placed in it.

That is not true. While workmen of the Harland & Wolff Engineering in Southampton (Harland and Wolff had a business location in Southampton close to the docks) worked on the Titanic on the 4th to the 10th in Southampton. However she was not sended to Southampton after her exterior was finished, while she was unfinished she left Belfast on the Second of April she was fitted out in Belfast. Final touches were brought upon her in Southampton.

Ummm...what do you mean by this? It's not quite clear.
That nearly all her interior, as in the pannels and other fittings, were installed in Belfast too. The final touches were done, such as all the plants and furniture in the right places, were done in Southampton. The Harland and Wolff guarantee group even had a decorator and painter on-board named Joey Thompson, who left the ship before she setted sail, who worked on the final touches with some of the Southampton workmen of Harland and Wolff.
