In this blog post, we’ll show you how to use the Polylang plugin to quickly establish a multilingual WordPress site. Polylang enables the creation of multilingual websites. In any language, you can make and edit translations of your pages and posts.

What exactly is Polylang?

Polylang is a WordPress plugin that allows you to construct a bilingual or multilingual website. You can add an unlimited number of languages and manually or using a translation management system translate the contents of your site (articles, pages, categories, tags, widgets, menus, custom post kinds, taxonomies, URLs, and so on).

Step-by-step guide

1. Installing and activating the Polylang plugin is the first step.

2. To configure the plugin, go to Languages > Languages after it’s been activated.

3. There are three tabs on the language settings page. The ‘Languages’ tab is the first.

4. This is where you’ll list the languages you’ll be using on your website. You’ll need to specify the default language as well as all other languages available to users on your website.

5. Switch to the ‘Strings Translations‘ tab after adding the languages. You must first translate the site title and description before selecting the date and time format.

6. The next step is to go to the Languages > Settings page. You can configure language-specific URL settings and create SEO-friendly URLs from this page.

7. When you’re finished, click the Save Changes button to save your changes.

8. After you’ve saved everything, go to your homepage, where you should now see your header menu links as well as flags to switch the site’s language translations.

That’s it!

Polylang is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to translations. It includes everything you’ll need to turn your website into a multilingual powerhouse.

A killer multilingual WordPress website is the only thing better than a killer site. You keep all of the benefits of your hard work, but you also have the opportunity to reach a larger audience than you could ever reach with a single language.
