As it should always be

Awesome, simple and hot.

From far, the better I tried in this repo.

I had a little problem when I needed to translate _e() text from my custom made theme.
Turns out it works just as it is suposed:
It uses po/mo for in-theme (hardcoded in php files) strings, and handle from its own UI (@ wp-admin) only the content (post types and taxonomies too!!!) translation. And detects all the content automagically, allowing us to choose wich to translate.

Looked too awesome to be true, but apparently, it is way better than I thought, and still true :P

Also, support was astonishingly fast when I asked about the theme strings!

Does not work with Simple:Press
By , for WP 4.1.1

Great work on the Plugin. I managed to add Kurdish language by taking them from the Kurdish WP Installation. My site is in English, Arabic and Kurdish and the Simple:Press works on 90% of the site very well, unfortunately it does not work with Simple:Press forum which has its own Langauge plugin.
That is not a major issue but what is: Polylang interferes with the Simple:Press plugin preventing the execution of some links.
The Simple:Press worked when disabling Polylang. Is there a way to make Polylang stop interfering with Simple:Press? I have also asked Simple:Press a similar question and their support forum suggests a "query.js" blah blah fault?

Almost perfect!

Thank you, Chouby, for a great plugin! I can see that a great amount of work is needed to create and maintain such a plugin, so thank you so very much.

The only serious problem I encountered while using Polylang was the inability to refer to the same post in all languages when there is no translation availible. As many-many other users mentioned before me: this is a very important aspect. So... 4 stars from me.

Best regards.

Excellent plugin

This plugin is excellent, is better than others plugins like WPML.

When I try to install WPML, generally WPML collapse with my themes, is near to impossible configure that plugin without buy their support.

Instead, the plugin POLYLANG works properly in differents websites with differents themes and their administration is similar to another plugins very expensives.

If you search the best alternative for you multilanguage website, this is the solution.

Excellent.

Neat admin integration and seemless API
By , for WP 4.1.1

It is great how the translated pages are linked with the untranslated page - unlike qTranslate that puts translations into each page or post as comments, which breaks when that plugin is disabled.

Very nice integration with wp_query to automatically return translated content!
