Multiple languages blogging. A core solution?

    I agree that most of the code for this this probably should be a plugin. But the database need good support for this in order to work better and much faster. The only core code that would be needed is adding support for this in queries(WP_Query or get_posts for example) and then a few helper functions. That wouldnt add much complexity and wont add a lot of overhead.

    As it is now, all the plugins are hacks in one way or an other. It's a hell to maintain or migrate.

    I fully support the post of pekz0r: if there is no consensus to code all ML-functions in to the core, there should be created an "officially plugin" with strong support from core devs. I had and have unsatisfying experience/s with existing ML-plugins which hinders to fully concentrate on building the content of ML-WP-pages.

    In case you'd missed it, step one for WP is to get language packs working. Once we have that functional, so you only install one version of WP and easily upgrade languages, then we can work on step twos.

    We are eagerly waiting for this feature. I wish it would be possible in the shortest period of time.

    PM:sorry for my bad english.

    Ipstenu: Yes, but that is something completely different. Language packs are only for translating the output of the code(core, themes and plugins) and has very little to do with translations of content witch is what we are talking about here.

    People were asking about both aspects. So I thought educating them as to some of the progress would be nice, that's all.

    WordPress has so good transaltion skills. It should be native multilingual. I am thinking about this every time I create a new WordPress site.

    There's still no [em]reliable[/em] way to translate a WordPress website. For simple websites WPML may suffice, but speaking from experience, as soon as you start building a somewhat more complex website using WooCommerce you run into all kinds of issues, with all kinds of other plugins.

    When WPML fixes one bug, they introduces 10 new ones. It's a nightmare..

    Please WordPress, make multilingual part of the WordPress Core. I would donate €250,- and I'm sure I wouldn't be the only one. The amount of time finding and fixing wpml bugs has taken me is just mind boggling.

    @comheroes: that's exactly why I haven't migrated some ML websites running on old or less nice CMS to WP Multisite which is another step adding complexity to plugin reliability. It would be so wonderful having WP Multisite + Multilanguage supported officially.
