Polylang adds multilingual content management support to WordPress.
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.
simple, efficient. no problem.
We choose Polylang because it's interface is simple and easy to understand. It covers most of the needed functions and is stable. Unfortunately it wasn't stated in the documentation that it's not compatible with the NGGallery plugin (one of the most popular plugins for WP).
Today I was informed by the author that the developlemnt to work out the problems is not going further which makes this plugin no more the first choice for future projects. Unfortunately.
If you can live without that plugin - go and use Polylang. It's worth it.
Nice plugin, easy to work with. Upgrades have killed my site a couple of times now. It's really a general rule: do the testing before upgrading a working live site.
I started to use polylang on a new website (aka wordpress from scratch) and it provided exactly what you can think about when it comes to multilingual over one wordpress...
Although some strange behaviour appeared after a while (new plugin conflict may be...) and I guess I'll have to dig inside, which is fair compared to benefit provided.. but scares me as I'm pretty bad in wordpress core.
Gave 4 stars for the little bit of maturity needed, I would give 4.5 if I could :)
good plugin! provides almost every kind of feature you want to have from multi-language plugin. supports pages, posts, categories, widgets and many more.
disadvantage is that there is no integrated translation service. you can have one called "Polylang Auto translation", but currently in version 0.2.1.
I would like the option to "copy and edit" or something like that.
What would translate to keep design, layout, and all the inclusions of the original post.
After trying another plugin that added codes to my posts and was more difficult to manage, I found this one which really works and it's easy to setup. My only problem is with permalinks, can't seem to make it work unless I'm running Default, but perhaps I don't know how to configure it properly, need to investigate a bit more. Very useful anyway!
Hi folks, Alfredo here from Italy.
Good work with this plugin, thank you.
I've to develop multilanguage website for a small commercial agency and with your plugin my work run very fast.
Thank you again.
Unlike qTranslate, Polylang is a transparent plugin making multi-language web sites easy to make in minutes. I also appreciate organization of plugin sources and easy-to-use API, when once need to go deeper.
The only disadvantage is that in administration there is a separate post displayed for every translation. In case of 4 and more languages it gets really messy. Fortunately, there is at least a way around for experienced developers: attach hook to 'pre_get_posts' that shows only posts in a default language.
