WPGlobus - Multilingual Everything!

Multilingual / Globalization: URL-based multilanguage; easy translation interface, compatible with Yoast SEO, All in One SEO Pack and ACF!

WPGlobus is a family of WordPress plugins assisting you in making bilingual / multilingual WordPress blogs and sites.

Important Notes: PLEASE READ BEFORE USING WPGlobus!

  • NO AUTOMATIC TRANSLATION:
    • WPGlobus does NOT translate texts! You will translate texts manually.
  • PAGE BUILDERS / COMPOSERS:
    • The free version of WPGlobus is compatible with the WPBakery Visual Composer. Other builders, such as "Page Builder by SiteOrigin", "Beaver Builder", Fusion ("Avada"), Elegant ("Divi"), etc. - require a premium add-on, which is currently at the Beta-testing stage. Please read the details here.
  • IF YOU WANT TO UNINSTALL:
    • WPGlobus stores all translations using a special format: {:en}English{:}{:fr}French{:}{:es}Spanish{:}.... If you decide to deactivate WPGlobus, you must run the clean-up tool to keep only one language. See the details on the "Welcome" tab in the WPGlobus Settings.
  • NO MULTISITE:
    • The multisite mode (multiple virtual sites sharing a single WordPress installation) is not tested and not supported.
  • FREE / PAID:
    • Some functionality is available only with our premium add-ons. Details below.
  • OLD PHP / OLD WORDPRESS:
    • We develop and test our software using the latest versions of PHP and WordPress only. If you have an older version and something is not working properly - please contact us and we'll help.
  • MBSTRING:
    • For the full UTF-8 compatibility and better performance, please make sure that the Multibyte String PHP extension is enabled.

Please read the Quick Start Guide to see how WPGlobus works.

What is in the FREE version of WPGlobus?

The WPGlobus plugin provides you with the general multilingual tools.

  • Manually translate posts, pages, categories, tags menus and widgets; If you need help with translation, please check out our Professional Translation Services directory;
  • Add one or several languages to your WP blog/site using custom combinations of country flags, locales and language names;
  • Enable multilingual SEO features of Yoast SEO and All in One SEO plugins;
  • Switch the languages at the front-end using: a drop-down menu extension and/or a customizable widget with various display options;
  • Switch the Administrator interface language using a top bar selector;

The WPGlobus plugin serves as the foundation to other plugins in the family.

There are several Free Add-ons:

  • WPGlobus Featured Images: allows setting featured images separately for each language.
  • WPGlobus Translate Options: enables selective translation of the wp_options table strings. You need to use it when your theme or a 3rd party plugin (a slider, for example) allows you to enter some texts (headings, buttons, etc.) and stores them in the options table.
  • WPGlobus for WPBakery Visual Composer: enables WPGlobus on certain themes that use WPBakery's Composer. Please note that Visual Composer is a commercial product, and therefore our support is limited.
  • WPGlobus for Black Studio TinyMCE Widget: adds multilingual editing capabilities to the visual editor widget.

When do I need Premium Extensions?

  • To translate URLS (/my-page/ translates to /fr/ma-page, /ru/моя-страница and so on);
  • To "postpone" translation to all languages and publish only those that are ready;
  • To have completely separate menus for each language;
  • To translate WooCommerce products and taxonomies;
  • To have separate "focus keywords" for each language in the Yoast SEO;
  • ...and more.

For more details, please check out the descriptions of each paid add-on on our website:

Compatibility with Themes

  • WPGlobus works correctly with all themes that apply proper filtering before outputting content.
  • As most of the themes save their settings in the options table, you can use the WPGlobus Translate Options plugin to process those settings correctly.
  • Some themes incorporate 3rd party plugins (e.g., sliders, forms, composers) - not all of them are 100% multilingual-ready. When you see elements that cannot be translated, please tell the theme / plugin authors. We are ready to help them.
  • Read more on the topic here.

Plugin Compatibility

WPGlobus is compatible with many plugins, including but not limited to:

  • ACF - Advanced Custom Fields. WPGlobus Plus premium add-on is required for WYSIWYG fields support,
  • All in One SEO Pack,
  • Black Studio TinyMCE Widget (with our free add-on),
  • MailChimp for WordPress,
  • Max Mega Menu,
  • Popups - WordPress Popup,
  • Sidebar Login,
  • The Events Calendar,
  • WPBakery Visual Composer (with our free add-on),
  • Whistles,
  • Widget Logic,
  • Yoast SEO. WPGlobus Plus premium add-on is required for multilingual focus keyword and SEO analysis. Note: the "Pro" version of Yoast SEO has some compatibility issues and we currently do not support it.

Some 3rd party plugins are supported with our premium add-ons:

Permalinks

IMPORTANT: WPGlobus will not work if your URLs look like example.com?p=123 or example.com/index.php/category/post/.

Please go to Settings->Permalinks and change the permalink structure to non-default and with no index.php in it. If you are unable to do that for some reason, please talk to your hosting provider / systems administrator.

Note: WooCommerce adds their own section to the Permalinks. It is important to fill in all the information. For example, you need to specify your Shop Base, for example /product/. If you leave it blank, WooCommerce will try to translate the base (eg /produkt/ for German), which will result in a 404 error.

Developing on `localhost` or custom ports

WPGlobus may not work correctly on development servers having URLs like //localhost/mysite or on custom ports like //myserver.dev:3000. Please use a proper domain name (a fake one from /etc/hosts is OK) and port 80.
