The 3 best translation plugins for WordPress

In this post we’re going to show you the 3 best translation plugins for WordPress. But, why do we need them? Well because installing a translation plugin for WordPress in a single environment allows you to manage the translation of your website in a relatively simple way. Keep in mind that we mean plugins that manage human translations; we dont have so much faith in machines.

So if that’s what you’re looking for, here are the 3 best translation plugins for WordPress that you don’t want to miss:

qTranslateThe most downloaded multilingual translation plugin for WordPress

The best thing about qTranslate, apart from the fact that it’s free, is that it stores the original and its translations in the same entry, and it doesn’t create additional tables in the database. It saves you both time and space! Although it has a downside, beware of its technical support: its team is very small (literally one person), so sometimes it can crash.

Polylang: The WordPress translation plugin with the highest rating

And rightly so. Polylang is free, it has magnificent technical support and it allows you to translate practically all of your webpage content. Although, it does not update at the same pace as other WordPress translation plugins, and therefore runs the risk of being out-dated.

WPML: The WordPress translation plugin standard

Ok, this plugin isn’t free, but it isn’t expensive either. Its cost is more than acceptable considering it provides quality technical support and regular upgrades that are carried out by a specialized technical team.

Also, in addition to enabling the translation of the entire website and being easy to use, it allows you to create profiles for professional translators within your own CMS and send them the content to be translated in XLIFF format. Or rather you can connect with a WPML certified language service provider like us, and the downloading and uploading of content will be done automatically.

Any disadvantages? The fact that it creates additional tables can slow down the administrator, but we use it here at Ontranslation and we are very happy with it. So if you’re serious about your WordPress website, definitely use WPML.
