Run localized WordPress sites easily. Select the language and everything else happens automatically.
End of development: as of version 1.2.1, we're not continuing the development on this plugin. This doesn't mean that it's broken. The recent WordPress development covers to a good degree the functionality in this plugin. However, in order to build and run multilingual websites, WPML includes everything that you need.
WordPress Language plugin lets you easily run localized WordPress sites. It will change the WordPress language, without having to install translation files or edit PHP.
WordPress Language uses an online index of current translation files for WordPress. That index includes entries for each WordPress version, language and country variant.
When you switch language, the plugin checks for the best translation file. Then, it downloads the translations, scans them and stores the translations in the database.
You don't need to install any .mo files or edit your wp-config.php to switch languages.
When you need to run multilingual sites, you're welcome to try WPML. You'll be able to run several languages on the same site from one database.
Running a multilingual site is a lot easier and more efficient than having several WordPress sites - one for each language.
WordPress Language is evolving. To suggest new features or ask a quesion, visit WordPress Language plugin page.
