Polylang

Making WordPress multilingual

  1. Make sure you are using WordPress 3.8 or later and that your server is running PHP 5.2.4 or later (same requirement as WordPress itself)
  2. If you tried other multilingual plugins, deactivate them before activating Polylang, otherwise, you may get unexpected results !
  3. Download the plugin
  4. Extract all the files.
  5. Upload everything (keeping the directory structure) to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  6. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress.
  7. Install and activate the Lingotek Translation plugin to enable machine/professional translation.
  8. Go to the languages settings page and create the languages you need
  9. Add the 'language switcher' widget to let your visitors switch the language.
  10. Take care that your theme must come with the corresponding .mo files (Polylang downloads them for themes and plugins bundled with WordPress). If your theme is not internationalized yet, please refer to the codex or ask the theme author to internationalize it.
