    How do you use MailChimp on a multi-lingual WordPress site?

    I wish not to provide separate subscription option for each site, since many readers can not or do not read the subsites in other languages.

    I imagine that it may be possible to create multiple MailChimp accounts – one for each sub-site.

    Will that cause problem with the plugin or MailChimp service providers?

    Hi Dan,

    Thanks for hopping in the forum. MailChimp does have a feature that will automatically translate the forms and response emails in the signup process. This guide from the knowledge base has details on it:
    Can you translate my signup forms and response emails?: http://eepurl.com/g0BQ

    The plugin can also be automatically translated for each WordPress install. Just set it in your wp-config.php file. That language will be used for errors and other messages. Check out this page from the codex on setting the language in your install: http://codex.wordpress.org/Installing_WordPress_in_Your_Language

    Let us know if you have any other questions.

    Correction: 2nd line of my first question as:

    “I wish to provide separate subscription option for each site,…..”

    @mc_dominic
    Apologies, I didn’t know Multilingual site means something else.

    What I wanted is:
    I got a Multisite and the subsites use different languages. Therefore, I want a separate subscription form for each subsite.

    I imagine that it may be possible to create multiple MailChimp accounts – one for each sub-site.
    Will that cause problem with the plugin or MailChimp service providers?

    Or is there another way?

    Hey Dan,

    Using multisite, each site can have the same WordPress plugin configured with a different list or even account. That said, you wouldn’t need to have mutliple MailChimp accounts. Instead, you could have multiple lists within the same MailChimp account, and have each of the subsites configured with the same MailChimp account for the plugin, and the correct list selected for each.

    If you run into any trouble along the way, please let us know!

    Thank you I will give that a try and get back to you later.

    The way I see it – based on your explanation – I will only need to create multiple accounts if and only if I want to avoid hitting the maximum no. of emails per month.
