Why Did We Create ConveyThis?
Back in 2015 I wanted to make my WordPress website multilingual and add a couple of new languages such as Spanish, French, Russian and Chinese; I faced a bit of a problem. All the WordPress plugins I tried to install were cruel and crashed my website. One particular plugin was so bad it broke my WooCommerce store so deeply- even after I uninstalled it it remained broken! I’ve tried to contact the plugin’s support, but received no answer. I tried to fix it myself, but it wasn’t fixable. I was so frustrated that I decided to create a new multilingual WordPress plugin and make it available for free to small websites and make as many WordPress websites in as many languages as possible! Thus, the ConveyThis was born!
