    Can i use WPML plugin for more than one sites on different servers..?

    Currently i am working on some wodpress projects and most of the them need muliple language support.

    I was wondering if i could buy one bundle and use same for all my current and coming projects

    I need country flags for choosen website languages to be inserted in menu at the very right side.

    Is that possible with your plugin. May I use some trial version of your plugin before purchase?

    Hi there

    I am interested in to buy WPML. However, I would like to point out what I need in my blog and see if WPML would fit in. I am doing an bilingual blog which are English and Thai I would like to have a very simple site.

    1. Every post in Thai the URL would be http://www.beautycreative.co.uk/TH and English would be /EN?

    2. Does WPML has a button option on sidebar to be shown as Thai and English? so, readers can select which language they prefer and when they click on it the entire blog will be changed to the language that they selected.

    3. How it works on my dashboard? I will manually write 2 separate pages both Thai and English(same content but I will not use translate program)I am wondering how can work on it behind the dashboard? So every post it will not be shown in the home (if it’s happened the home page will be mess up with every 2 posts in the same content but in a different language)

    4. If I set up English as a main language for my blog. Would Google read for Thai version in my blog?

    5. If WPML does what I would like my blog to be so, what WPML version should I buy?

    Thank you

    Chani

      Hi there, thanks for your interest in WPML.
      1. If you choose English as the primary language, there will be no prefix for English. For Thai, there will be ‘th’. In case you choose Thai as the primary language, there will be no prefix for Thai. For English, there will be ‘en’ then.
      2. Yes, you just click “Display ‘Languages’ as the widget title ” in WPML settings.
      3. When transalte your post, a new post is created indeed but in your dashboard you can limit the results to one language only. This way you can for example display only all English posts or only Thai posts (you can also choose to show all languages).
      4. Yes, it will. When Google bots encounter your language switcher they will follow the link to Thai version and this way it will be also indexed.
      5. You can start with blog version. If it turns out that there is someting you cannot handle with it, you can always upgrate to CMS version by paying the difference only.

    Any chance of Korean (hangul mal) support anytime soon?

    Thanks

    • Agnes Bury says:

      Hi Mike,
      Are you asking about WPML supporting Korean? If so, WPML supports Korean.
      Or maybe you are asking about the possibility to provide support help in our forum in Korean? No, we don’t have such plans for the moment.

    Hi,

    Just wanting to know if you offer a package for setting up the plugin.
    I need a second language (other than english) chinese simplified.

    How much would this cost to purchase the basic set up of the plugin.

    Regards,

    K.

      Hi,
      I’m not sure if I understand what you mean by ‘a package for setting up the plugin’. WPML initial setup is very easy. When you activate WPML plugin, it will automatically guide you through the required steps.

      If you need some help, you are welcome to ask your questions in our support forum.
      If it’s not enough for you, we also have contractors:
      http://wpml.org/documentation/support/wpml-contractors/

      If you need professional translations for Chinese made by human, you can use our iCanLocalize service.
      http://www.icanlocalize.com/site/services/wordpress-translation/
      It’s paid but integrated with WPML so you send from and receive your translations directly into your WordPresss.

      Did I answer your question?

    Hi there

    Does WPML make website heavy? and make website slow when people download?

    • Agnes Bury says:

      Hi Jane,
      thanks for your interest in WPML and your question. Let me explain it giving you a broader perspective:
      1. WPML doesn’t inherently cause a website to be slow.
      2. WPML is a plugin. As such, it adds code and database access to the website. The actual addition to the site’s execution time depends on many factors, including the content, theme, other plugins and how WPML is configured.
      3. Using the default values, WPML automates a lot, allowing to run multilingual sites with many themes without any work. This makes using themes and plugins convenient and costs a bit in execution time. For very busy sites, we recommend a series of simple optimizations, which take a little bit of work and can reduce much of WPML’s execution time.

      I hope it helps.

    Hi again

    Sorry I have not made it clear. Basically, what I need

    1. I need only the function on the sidebar where readers can switch between two languages.

    2. I do not need the language translation plugin to be installed because I will manually write into different language. If I have not misunderstood the language translation plugin will make the website heavy?

    3. Is Wpml suitable for what I need? if so what version is it ?

    Thank you

    • Agnes Bury says:

      Hi again Jane,
      Yes, WPML doesn’t translate your content automatically but provides a way to create post/pages “containers” for different language content. This is what you expect I guess. Yes, you can easily add a language switcher to your sidebar. The Multilingual CMS version lets you translate all elements of your site, including image alternative texts for example. But you can start with the Blog version and upgrade to full version later, by paying only the difference, in case it turns out there is someting more you need.
