[contentblock id=15]Everyone with a blog on the WordPress platform might someday have had the need to translate the post, i.e provide the articles themselves in other languages.
Today I present excellent plugins for WordPress that makes this work is:
ZdMultiLang is a wordpress plugin allowing you to blog in multiple languages.
Here is a list of functions :
- Translate posts ang pages
- Translate categories and tags
- Switch blog language
- Widget to change currently viewed language
Global Translator automatically translates your blog in the following 48 different languages: Italian, Korean, Chinese (Simplified), Portuguese, English, German, French, Spanish, Japanese, Arabic, Russian, Greek, Dutch, Bulgarian, Czech, Croatian, Danish, Finnish, Hindi, Polish, Romanian, Swedish, Norwegian, Catalan, Filipino, Hebrew, Indonesian, Latvian, Lithuanian, Serbian, Slovak, Slovenian, Ukrainian, Vietnamese,Albanian,Estonian,Galician,Maltese,Thai,Turkish,Hungarian.
The number of available translations will depend on your blog language and the translation engine you will chose to use.
The Google AJAX Translation WordPress plugin provides a quick, simple, and light way to add translation to your blog.
A “Translate” button can be added to the bottom or top of posts, pages, and/or comments. When the button is clicked a popup window opens showing a list of available languages.
You can choose which of the 52 languages to display in the Administration Panel. The list of languages can be shown as text (in the native language of each language), as flag icons, or as both. Flag icons can be confusing and sometimes misleading so I recommend the text option. (See this google search for language flags.)
Feel free to suggest any other nice wordpress translation plugin that you know. ZdMultiLang is my fav plugin. Don’t forget to share your experience with this plugins here.
