YD Network-wide WPML


This plugin is an add-on to the WPML Multilingual CMS plugin from

It is also an add-on to the WordPress MU Sitewide Tags Pages plugin from Donncha O Coimh (aka. SWT).

It will make it possible to have site-wide contents, search, tags and categories in multiple languages.

Network-wide multilingual support

This WordPress 3.0 multisite or WPMU plugin makes sure that all data replicated to a central aggregation blog by the WordPress MU Sitewide Tags Pages plugin keeps its language properties generated by the WPML Multilingual CMS plugin.

Base package includes .pot file for translation of the interface, and English and French versions.

Installing WPML Network-wide

You will need my other plugin YD Network-wide Options to automatically install and setup WPML on all sub-blogs and replicate settings changes on all blogs.


This plugin is still in development stage / beta version. But the main features are already working.
