Multilanguage site with WordPress

It’s been a while since I wanted to write this post.

Being a Spanish developer means I have to build multilanguage sites.

Using WordPress it’s not that simple.

qTranslate

I started using the plugin qTranslate.

The problem with this plugin is that you can not set diferent post URL for each lenguage.

http://www.example.com/fr/my-post

WPML Multilingual CMS

Then I came across with this great plugin WPML Multilingual CMS.

It’s just the best
. You can set diferent post URL for each site what means better SEO.

http://www.example.com/fr/le-post

Working with the admin panel it’s pretty simple, all config are easy to set up.

If you’re working on a theme and you want to set some hard-core text or links they have a full documentation here. Even this part is really simple.

    I use WPML in one of my blogs and it’s awesome. It even has a professional service for translating your content and comments which may be very useful, but it’s very expensive.

    I like it a lot and I recommend it, it works with most plugins.
