Do you have a blog or a website that you want to make available in several languages? There are some really complicated ways of arranging this, but if you want to make internal linking happen automatically and editing easy, this is the best solution!
Most people growing up today have knowledge about more than one language. That is why many people decide to blog in their mother tongue and later in one more language. If you run a business site you want to reach as many people as possible, and that is why you want to create a multilingual WordPress site. But, how can you do so easily?
Make your site available in several languages
If you are about to create a WordPress site available in several languages then the WPML – The WordPress Multilingual plugin is the solution. This is a brilliant plugin which will make your job much easier and a joy to work with. To use the plugin you need to purchase it. The prices are at the moment either 29 USD or 79 USD. Both versions can be used on multiple blogs (meaning if you buy it once you can use it on as many blogs as you’d like), but there are some differences worth taking into consideration.
Multilingual blog (29 USD):
This is ideal if you have a blog or a site that you want to make available in multiple languages. You plan on doing the translation yourself or organize the translation yourself offline. If that is you this is perfect.
We have used this ourselves and like it a lot and it works perfectly for small blogs. If you later want to upgrade to the Multilingual CMS version this can easily be fixed
Multilingual CMS (79 USD):
In addition of being able to do everything the blog version can do, this version also makes it possible to arrange with translation of content inside the tool. You can make the admin tool available in different languages and of course translate plugin texts and other texts used in general by your theme. If you are a professional and plan on making money or your site, this is probably the version you will want to use.
If you try this plugin and do not like what you get, there is a 30-day money back guarantee. You get free upgrades and support for one year as you purchase. As the year ends you will get an offer to extend your right to get support and upgrades for one more year for half of the original price. The WPML WordPress plugin will work perfectly if you do not extend your subscription, you will only not be able to upgrade your plugin nor get support for it.
