Language Mix

This plugin modifies the behavior of the Polylang plugin making it show contents of all languages, which are believed to be known by the visitor.

There are countries, where people speak several languages. For these people there is no need to separate the content of the site by such languages, especially when they come with some unique (i.e., not translated) content. On the other side, there can still be people, who speak only one language.

The Language Mix plugin for WordPress is an extension to the Polylang plugin of Chouby, that implements a new approach of the multilingual content handling. Its main feature is that it does not hide content in other languages, which are known to the visitor! The plugin determines, which languages the user can read, using HTTP headers sent by the user's browser.

Additionally, the plugin comes with two widgets:

  • The Languages widget, that can be put on any WordPress page, allows to configure, content in which languages the user wants to see. The widget saves its settings into cookies.
  • The Translations widget, that can be put on the single content page only (e.g., the post page), is an alternative to the Polylang's Language Switcher widget. The difference is that this widget shows links only to translations of the current page (i.e., if no translations are available, nothing is shown).

The plugin's project is also hosted on the author's website (using Redmine and WordPress). There you can read news, report bugs, and more.

For the banner I used the image of Francesco De Comite.
