Best WordPress Translation Plugins: Free and Paid

Scroll to top

Do you want your website to be available in other languages? WordPress translation plugins can make that possible!

Since WordPress does not come with a built-in translator, these plugins add multilingual functionality to your website. They make it fast and easy to translate your content into different languages. The result is increased visibility, more traffic, and high conversion rates. 

In this article, we'll look at the most popular translation plugins available on CodeCanyon. We'll also look at some free translation plugins. 

The Best WordPress Translation Plugins on CodeCanyon for 2023

Translator Revolution adds a translator widget on your website. If the theme you use doesn't have widget areas, a custom positioning setting will help you place it wherever you want. 

The plugin supports over 100 languages and can translate your website in minutes. It will translate content from varied sources including popups, tables, galleries, portfolios, sliders, and forms.

In addition, it comes with a whopping 93 customizable settings that can help you: 

  • customize it to translate everything on your website
  • include or exclude certain sections
  • exclude entire pages, posts, and categories
  • remember visitors' selected languages
  • show language flags or language names

When you have many visitors on your websites at the same time, browser resources get used to translate text into their language. To avoid slowing down the website, you can specify the number of concurrent visits the plugin can handle. 

The plugin supports the SurStudio Translate API and the Google Translate API. Check out the bar-styled plugin version: Ajax Translator Revolution WordPress Plugin.

Think About Localizing Your Translations

Machine translation is just the first step. It is a good start, but you end up with translations that are too literal and sound awkward to local speakers. Consider hiring local translators to smooth out translations and give them local flavor to help you connect with your new audience. 

But that's not all. Each language has its own specific keywords that rank well on local search engines, so consider working with a local SEO and keyword specialist. The following articles will give further information on SEO and SEO plugins:
