We’re finally ready with the first fully working version of BuddyPress Multilingual. It’s a glue plugin which allows BuddyPress sites to run fully multilingual using WPML.
BuddyPress sites include many components which are not language aware. This plugin changes it by adding language information to all of them.
So, when you’re using WPMU, BuddyPress and WPML, BuddyPress Multilingual sits in the middle and makes them all play nice.
It adds a language switcher to the BuddyPress banner, and makes sure that wherever you go in the site, you stay in the same language. So, for example, if you’re viewing a member profile, the page will display in the correct language.
Here is how it looks like in action:
What you can see in the movie is how I change the site language. Once changed, everything displays in that language.
How to use
In order to run correctly WPML needs to be configured to use language directories. This is the only supported language URL configuration. Besides that, there’s nothing else to check.
How is it working for you?
