Both guest sites and the main site can have contents in many languages (using WPML). This plugin makes the BuddyPress controls language-aware, so that when visitors navigate around the site, they remain in the same language.


After you unpack downloaded zip file from the plugin download page to your WPMU installation plugins folder (/wp-content/plugins/), activate it through link ‘Activate Buddypress Multilingual Site Wide’ or the regular ‘Activate’ link.
