User Language Switch is a WordPress multilingual plugin that you can use to build multilingual websites. It displays flags to visitors that your users can use to browse your website in different languages. If you prefer, you can deactivate flags and user shortcodes and functions to create your own language switch.

Admin users can set default language for your website and registered users can set language they want to see your website by default. User Language Switch allows to set language for back-end and front-end independently.

When content is linked, a language prefix is added in URLs of content in secondary languages. The plugin always redirect to URLs with language prefix for content in secondary language, in this way there are no different URLs pointing to the same content and hurting your SEO. This plugin is compatible with SEO plugins like Yoast SEO.

It requires you install different languages in your website and provide translation of your content, it doesn't translate content automatically. User Language Switch requires nice permalinks and URL rewriting enabled.

User Language Switch was created by Webilop team and it is free. If you need help, you can use the plugin support forum or don't hesitate to contact us. We also offer services about WordPress development and customization.
