I've used this plugin on quite a few sites as I believe that, in most cases, multisite is the best option for multilingual sites. I had a little hiccup once but the plugin author helped in just a few hours. Impressive.
This plugin had no problem from the beginning, but I wanted to put some flags in the nav_menu. The programmer helped me nice and quick. I recommend him strongly for php and programming!
I've been happily using on several medium to high traffic multisite/multilanguage installs for about a year now.. Everything works perfectly.
I was very angry with all other multi language plugins and all their junks and workarounds that I decided to give this plugin a chance.
And come out that this was far the best plugin for the job!
Easy, simple and clean.
Very easy to setup, and language Connections can be set at anytime during the authoring process. Setting this Plugin up also provides a basic introduction to the principles of WordPress Multilingualism.
The perfect plugin to doing multilanguage on mulsite
If you get your Multisite WP set up, install the plugin and you are done.
One thing I really miss (or could not find it) in settings is to change the front- backend language.
The language should change accordingly to the articles, so if you have an english default in / the standard language files should be used and if you write articles in /de/ the de_DE files should bring up the matching translation of the front- and backend.
If you add this to your plugin I'll give it 5 stars!
Yes, there are better and more "complete" solutions out there which may be the better choice for professional websites with external translators - but I still prefer MSLS for my own site since it is free and there are no hidden "pro" features which you have to pay for.
It just works as expected: You can see in the backend, which translations are missing and you can link pages and posts in different languages together without modifying the content or the database structure.
I also like the API which I used to add a language selection to my main navigation menu ;-)
Works flawless and saved me money from buying wpml.
Thank you for this awesome plugin!
Really perfect for managing multilingual blogs. :-)
