Support » Plugin: Google Language Translator » plugin in menu – twenty fourteen

  • Hi
    I am absolutely new in WP, and have not any knowledge about programming.
    I hope somebody will help me 🙂

    I didn’t know where and how tu paste shortcode from plugin, so I used a google translate script (last step of its configuration on my google account), and paste it at the beginning of each page or post.
    But maybe it is possible to make only one dropdown list with this plugin. The best will be in top menu bar, between “contact” and “search”.

    Hi, you need to add a plugin called “Enhanced Text Widget”

    This will show a new widget called “Enhanced Text”
    it will be with your other widgets, the enhanced widget accepts shortcode.

    now copy and paste this into the widget: [google-translator]

    to use short codes on pages or posts, paste the shortcode into the “text” section.

    Good luck with the rest of your help!

    Michael, thanks a lot for advise.
    Great widget, but as I know it is impossible to add it to menu. Or maybe there is some other place, where I can put it to have only one main dropdown for all site? I also would like to use translation management, and do not know, where to put google metatag after I use one shortcode for all site…

    Anybody? 😉



    you can add it anywhere, it just takes work and I would have to see your site to know what you need to do.

    I’d be appreciate

    Thanks for reply.
    Yes-I am still interested in putting this menu between “contact” and “search” on top menu.

    Could you help me step by step?



    I’m interested too. It should be a great idea to add the google translator button into the menu bar, using the same style as the other items of the menu.
    I know how to add the shorcode in the pages or posts and into the sidebar (widget “text”) or the header, but I’d prefer to add the tranlator plugin into the menu bar
    Thank you for this plugin and for support it.

    Hi there guys and gals,

    To place this into the menu is a great idea, and it will eventually get programmed into the plugin, although I have not yet made this a focus.

    To do this would require some custom work, if you are wanting it done on your websites as of now.

    Off the top of my head, this would not be placed directly into the menu, but immediately to either side of the menu, in the area you want.

    The menu area is tough because it’s dynamically generated by WordPress, and modifying it requires a some custom programming to make it work correctly.

    I can do this if you want for a small fee. Can you please email me through this contact form if you are interested.


    Thanks so much for using the plugin,

    @bbefore, were you able to get the translate widget placed correctly? I don’t see it on your site, but the sidebar would be perfect place for making it show on all pages, while only adding it once.

    Let me know if you decided not to use it – thanks!
