MultilingualPress Features

Performance benchmarks you'll love

MultilingualPress is developed by engineers. We care for bits like that extra database query that’s just not supposed to happen. Basically, we let WordPress do its job and keep our plugin out of the way of any speed-relevant queries.

Better Performance - Good for SEO

Due to its good performance in contrast to other solutions, multilingual websites with MultilingualPress rank higher. Because Google and other search engines care about the performance of websites. Therefore, it’s an important fact for a good search result position.

Add Language Links to WP Nav Menus

The most intuitive place for navigational language links. Just drag and drop your languages into your custom menus. (That’s right, no code snippets required. Banzai!)

Automatic hreflang support for language sites

The hreflang attribute is used by Google to serve the correct language or regional URL in search results. MultilingualPress automatically inserts the respective link element within the head section of each language site.

Language Manager

174 languages at your finger tips. Choose the ones you’re going to use, manage all the details, assign priorities. You could even invent a new language and assign it to a site within your network. Fancy a blog translated into Volapük?

Translate All The Things

Default WordPress content like posts, pages, categories, tags, custom post types and taxonomies can be translated with MultilingualPress.

Automatic language redirection

Automatically redirect your visitors to their preferred language depending on their browser settings.

Quick Nav

Automatically insert a quick navigation to all available translations into single posts and pages.

Dashboard Widget

An optional widget on your Dashboard showing pending translations.

Duplicate Sites

Create a new site in your network as a copy of an existing site, including all posts, pages, widgets and settings.

SEO-friendly URLs & Permalinks

Cool URIs don’t change. A permalink is supposed to be permanent, meaning: forever. MultilingualPress lets WordPress handle your permalinks like you set them up. No rewrites, promised.

Full flexibility

Thanks to WordPress’ multisite solution in contrast to one-page-solutions, you have the full flexibility and the whole control in your hands. Each of your websites can have totally different functionalities or a totally different design, if you like, while all your language pages are in one big network.

Top-level Domains per Language

Use top-level domains for your language sites, like .com or co.uk for English, .fr for French, .pt for Portuguese, .es for Spain, .de for German…

Future-proof, WordPress Core-based Architecture

Building a future-compatible WordPress plugin requires a strong commitment to WordPress’ core. MultilingualPress leverages the Multisite core feature that powers millions of sites from one code base on WordPress.com.

No Lock-in, just honest Open Source Software.

MultilingualPress treats everything you create with great respect. Export/import language content with the default WordPress Export/Import tool into another setup. It will be there as you expect, whether our plugin is running or not.

Inline Docs & Developer Support

Need to extend MultilingualPress with custom functionality? Feast your eyes on rich inline documentation and OOP. Feel brave? You can even re-use interfaces and classes of the plugin.

Visual editor

Write and translate on the same screen without having to switch language sites in the back-end.  

Translate Custom Post Types

Portfolios, events, testimonials, products… You name it, you translate it.

Trasher

When you move a post or page to the trash, optionally trash all its translations simultaneously.

Language Switcher Widget

Make use of the customizable widget to display links to all other languages.

Why is MultilingualPress the right solution?

You're probably asking, why is MultilingualPress the best plugin to use for multilingual websites? That's easy to answer, since with MultilingualPress we use a different approach compared to the usual solutions. Being based on Multisite, you don't have any performance issues, since we are only loading one language per site, instead of other solutions, which load all languages but only display one at the end. A huge performance issue!

Also, our Multilingual WordPress Plugin doesn't change anything in WordPress-Core, so no need to fear updating your WordPress version and conflicts with other well written plugins.

With multisite you have complete flexibility! Each language can have a different design, different functions and plugins, if wanted. No limitations!

Last but not least, better performance -> better SEO. Also you can perfectly SEO optimize each language to your liking, which is limited with other multilingual solutions, since their main page is only in one language and some settings can only be done in that language.

Truly Localized WordPress

There is lots to say about web content in multiple languages. Some things you should think through, and other things you shouldn’t need to worry about. Especially when your content gets more complex, WordPress should remain easy and intuitively usable.

That’s why we have created MultilingualPress on top of a powerful core feature of WordPress: Multisite. The same feature that powers millions of sites on WordPress.com.

MultilingualPress enables you to create a network of sites in different languages, all interconnected just like you want them to be.

Publish away in your language! And theirs. And theirs, too…
