WPML is a popular multilingual translation plugin for your WordPress website. An intuitive interface helps you translate your website into over 40 languages. Easily translate your content, plugin and theme text from your Admin Panel. The plugin is also compatible with WooCommerce for your shop pages.
You can also turn your users into translators – assign them translation jobs and manage it all using WPML’s interface.
Translates plugin and theme content as well
Most translation plugins translate posts and pages, but with String Translation add-on you can conveniently translate plugin and theme text as well. This including buttons, navigation menu, and more.
Compatible with all major WordPress players
WPML works with WooCommerce, Elementor, Contact Form 7 and more. So it really translates your complete website.
Large number of customization options and flexible tools to help you have complete control over translations.
Good customer support
You can raise a support ticket with WPML support team and have any queries you have answered promptly. They also have a customer support forum and extensive documentation
Setting up the plugin and configuring everything according to your needs is complicated. Some of the options are difficult to use. There’s a learning curve when using this plugin
Needs add-ons to make everything work
The core plugin will help you translate your post and pages. But for other functionalities like translating plugin and theme content you need add-ons. And some of the add-ons are only available with the Multilingual CMS plan.
It only has a premium version. The Multilingual CMS plan that comes with all the features and access to all the add-ons is priced at $79. And then you have to pay a $59 recurring fee.
Difficult to setup
Has lots of settings
Most translation plugins only translate website content, but WPML also takes care of theme and plugin text which is very convenient. I also like that they work for left to right languages like Arabic and Urdu.
With WPML you can have a lot of control over your website. It has many options and flexible tools to manage all the languages on your website and tweak it the way you want.
It is one of the best plugins to translate your website. Quite happy with the auto-translate tools as my site content changes frequently. Also like that I have the option of manual translations
