I have stopped developing this plugin. I recommend you to use qTranslate X instead.

Writing multilingual content is already hard enough, why make the plugin even more complicated? I created qTranslate to let WordPress have an easy to use interface for managing a multilingual web site.

qTranslate makes creation of multilingual content as easy as working with a single language. Check out some of the features:

  • One-Click-Switching between the languages – Change the language as easy as switching between Visual and HTML
  • Professional human or automated machine translation – Reach more visitors and show that you care about them by showing your entries in their native language
  • No more for adding special characters or strings to seperate your multilingual texts! – qTranslate will handle them almost everywhere for you
  • No need to edit the plugin file to get your language working! – Use the comfortable and intuitive Configuration Page
  • Comes with many languages already builtin! – English, German, Simplified Chinese and a lot of others
  • Add your language in seconds! – Thanks to the simplistic Configuration Page
  • Multilingual dates out of the box – Translates dates and time for you.
  • Improved Installation! – No need to manually search and upload Gettext Databases/.mo files anymore
  • Multilingual Text in Templates without the need to change Gettext Databases/.mo files – Use Language Tags with Gettext!
  • Choose one of 3 Modes to make your URLs pretty and SEO-friendly. – The everywhere compatible ?lang=en, simple and beautiful /en/foo/ or nice and neat en.yoursite.com
  • One language per URL – Users and SEO will thank you for not mixing content.
  • and a lot more…

But why don’t you see for yourself if qTranslate is the right thing for you:

Just click on one of the flags at the top of this page. qTranslate is actively used and developed by me, as I need it for my blog too. I am always using the latest stable release here.
