Ready to translate your website?

You can translate website in the following ways:

  1. Install a translation plugin: There are several translation plugins available for WordPress, some popular ones include WPML, Polylang, and TranslatePress.
  2. Configure the plugin: Once the plugin is installed, you’ll need to set it up and configure it according to your needs. This may include selecting the languages you want to translate to, creating language switchers, etc.
  3. Translate your content: The plugin will provide you with a way to translate your pages, posts, and other content. This can be done either by manual translation or through automatic machine translation.
  4. Publish the translated content: Once the translation is complete, you can publish it on your website and make it available to your visitors.
  5. Test the translation: Finally, it’s important to test the translation on your website to make sure everything is working as expected and that the translated content is accurate and readable.

The exact steps to add language translation may vary depending on the plugin you choose, so make sure to consult the plugin’s documentation for detailed instructions.


The most popular and widely used browser extension for translating websites is Google Translate. It is available for Chrome, Firefox, and other popular browsers, and can automatically detect the language of a website and offer to translate it into your preferred language. Google Translate integrates seamlessly with your browser and provides quick and easy translations that can be very helpful for understanding the content of a website in a foreign language.

Other popular browser extensions for translating websites include Microsoft Translator, iTranslate, and TranslateNow. However, Google Translate is the most widely used and trusted translation tool available and is generally considered the best option for automatically translating websites.
