Does MultilingualPress translate my content?
No, MultilingualPress does not translate texts. MultilingualPress connects translations which belong to different sites of your multisite. So your website visitors see the content in the language they know.
Who translates my texts?
Is there a service to translate my text professionally?
Yes, there is a service. By installing Eurotext’s translationMANAGER plugin, you can order professional translations in more than 50 languages from the WordPress backend directly. The translations are exclusively made by native speakers.
What happens if I don’t translate my texts?
You don’t need to translate every post, page etc. So in case you have a German post and don’t translate it into English, and your website visitors change into the English version of your website, they are redirected to the start page of your English website version. There is no 404 error (site not found)..
Where do I find the feature list?
Is MultilingualPress compatible with the WordPress Multisite’s Domain Mapping Feature?
Yes. Domain Mapping is supported. That means you can run the sites on top level domains and not only on subdomains or in sub directories.
Besides starting from WordPress 4.5 the Domain Mapping is a feature natively integrated in WordPress Multisite, and actually is independent from MultilingualPress.You want to set up Domain Mapping? Check out the WordPress Codex or our tutorial Domain Mapping in WordPress Multisite .
Which PHP and WordPress Version does MultilingualPress 3 require?
You need at least the versions PHP 7 and WordPress 4.8.
MultilingualPress & WordPress multisite
Do I really need a WordPress multisite?
Yes, MultilingualPress doesn’t make sense without multisite.
I know nothing about the multisite and I’m afraid of trying.

MultilingualPress & WooCommerce
Does MultilingualPress work with WooCommerce?
Yes. You can use MultilingualPress for multilingual sites both with or without WooCommerce. WooCommerce products and taxonomies are as easy to translate as normal posts. You can read more in our tutorial “Getting started with MultilingualPress“. The shops of your sites are independent, though.
Do the WooCommerce shops of the languages have a shared stock?
Yes, there is another plugin that lets you centralize the stock across your shops belonging to the same Multisite Network. Have a look at Central Stock for WooCommerce .
Does MultilingualPress convert prices from one currency into another?
No, you need to indicate the prices in each shop in its individual currency.
What’s the difference between the MultilingualPress you sell here and the one you sell at WooCommerce?
There is no difference. We are proud to be listed with our plugin on the WooCommerce Marketplace. It is the same plugin, we have the same prices and you will be supported by our supporters and devs, no matter where you buy.
