Support » Plugin: qTranslate X » Alternate Translations for Gutenberg?

  • Since this plugin appears to be abandoned and the switch to Gutenberg is going to present some new issues, I’m looking for an alternate solution for a site with 4 languages. Any recommendations?

  • Hello,

    I switched to WPML, which is actively developed, however it is not a free plugin. Most of the themes are compatible with WPML, it is quite a good solution. I checked all the options and decided upon this. You might also check Polylang, WPGlobus, WP Multilang. WP Multilang is a new free plugin and you can migrate from qTranslate-X to it, they have a similar approach. It doesn’t have slug translation, yet, which is important for me.

    Thanks for the suggestions, @weigertj! I have been concerned about the unstable situation for some time, so I am glad to hear that there are alternatives. I looked at WP Multilang and they even have a guide for migration from qTranslate-X included.
    Is it also possible to migrate to WPML, or did you have to start anew?

    You are welcome, jannik1953!
    I used qTranslate X Cleanup and WPML Import for the migration of my website – this migration plugin works but it is not perfect. I had to manually correct a lot of things like URL slug translation, All in One Seo Data, menus, etc. It’s still faster than starting things from the scratch.
    All in all one day was enough to totally rebuild my website, there wasn’t a single problem.
    The only disadvantage that I have with WPML is that it is less comfortable to translate the alt text for my nextGEN Gallery images. It has a string translation plugin module, but I don’t use it as I cannot see the images with the translations, only text. However with string translation you can translate even themes and plugins.

    Thanks again. Since neither the ALT texts for the images nor slug translation are not important for my website, I will seemingly have to deal with the difficulty of choosing between WPML and WP Multilang. That’s what we call a luxury problem, however – I already sleep better at night 🙂

    For the time being I will hang around and see what happens with future versions of WordPress, since I have disabled the automatic update function.

    The installation of WP Multilang seems a bit complicated to me, hopefully it will be more user-friendly in the future. I also keep track of the new versions.

    By the way, I forgot to mention Weglot, however the free version is quite limited.

    This works much better and is much more flexible MultilingualPress

    Installing a multisite for the first time was very easy.
