Best Translation Plugin. For soo many reasons.
Im writing a review for this plugin, first to say thank you to the developer for creating such an elegant translation plugin.
I have been wanting to translate a 200 post / woocommerce website from Spanish to English.
I wanted a translation plugin that did not slow my site down, all translations were on my server. Full control. Cost effective. Simple.
Over the course of 3 months i tested and re-built my site on staging server 3 times with the following plugins:
Test 1) Transpoosh
Initially i was very impressed at the speed of automatic google translation, HOWEVER, it causes more trouble than its worth with regards SEO, meta data, urls.
Test 2) Translate Press
It looks promising, however it costs if you want seo, urls and have to pay every year for software updates. Its very good, however in the end i realised that i was always going to be tied in to a product that for me was costing each year.
Test & Winner: Sublanguage.
Its main plus points are:
1) Its simple Granular, you can edit all elements.
2) Perfect for SEO: urls, meta data, descriptions.
3) Uses system of inheritance of posts / woocommerce.
4) All content stored in your posts database
5) No ongoing costs
6) Clean and simple
So, if your looking to translate a wordpress site / shop and want control over SEO 100%
Its not as quick and easy as Translate Press.
But i think the effort is worth it for full control.
