    Joost,

    Could you please comment on our options for adding language translations (multilingual) to our WordPress SEO enabled blogs? You had mentioned in another thread that you would not support a plugin like qTranslate (there was quite some discussion over this while you were on holiday, so you may have missed it). However, from the research I've done so far, it seems qTranslate is probably the best option short of multiple WP sites linked (such as WPML), which seems quite an undertaking for sites with lower resources. (And while qTranslate doesn't have as many users as WordPress SEO, over a half-million users is still a LOT!).

    What would you recommend folks in this situation do?

    For example, I'm currently working with a smaller non-profit that just needs to start putting out some of their articles in a few languages, but doesn't really need (or want the complexity of) having to maintain separate sites.

    I'm not sure what would be involved in making WordPress SEO play more nicely with qTranslate or qTranslate META, but if people keep hacking it to work until the next plugin update, it doesn't seem like a horrific task. Why the strong opposition? (If there is something really bad about qTranslate, I'd love to know before installing it!)

    The big thing, that I see, is getting the site title and description meta to work so that search results appear in the alternate languages. So, if a plugin like qTranslate META could have a stable way of interacting with WordPress SEO, it seems that would make a lot of people quite happy.

    A bit more explanation (or recommendations), I think, would help many of us who are struggling with this. Regards and thanks, -Steve
