What’s the most urgently missing feature for you in WPML?

Add to this support for WordPress 3.0 and legacy WordPress 2.9 and 2.8 and you get a lot of work.

There are two world-class programmers working on WPML and we’re looking to add more. If we can afford them, we’ll start hiring.

And, this is where you can help.

For a long time, we’ve been refusing donations. We just don’t feel comfortable with it. Now, there’s a way for you to chip in and help boost WPML. Instead of donations, you can purchase a support subscription.

Buying support subscriptions has two immediate advantages. You’re giving us the funding we need to dedicate more resources to working on WPML and you’re getting all the support you need for yourself.

Support Subscriptions Help Get the Job Done

Since going live with support subscription (yesterday), folks have already purchased them. And, results followed. Mihai was able to communicate directly with the web developers and resolve problems.

Instead of waiting for a reply in the forum, they got everything sorted out quickly and correctly. The support tickets that you create land immediately in Mihai’s inbox. When he replies, you get an email. You can also see the full ticket details in your WordPress admin panel.

Get Your Support Subscription

You have two ways to purchase a support. If you’re already on WPML, log in to WordPress and click on WPML->Support. Choose the subscription that’s right for you and purchase.

You can also buy it directly from our site. Go to the Support page and choose which subscription is best for you.


We appreciate your support. Together, we’ll push WPML and WordPress forward!

  1. I think the most important thing is to support the new features of WordPress (like the menus of WP 3.0).

    Because once you run your website multilingual with WPML, you’re stuck with it, and if the plugin doesn’t support the new features, you cannot use them at all and you’re blocked.

    BuddyPress support is important too, because social things are very important these days. And a social network in one language only is not serious.

    E-commerce is not a common use of WordPress.

    Views are an interesting project but not a priority for now : if you want a complex website, you have to go in the code and do specific templates. It’s not so complicated.

  2. ALL except Support for E-Commerce plugins.

    Full MultiSite support, with site-wide activation and configuration:
    Esspecially new blog defaults or something need. I dont want to copy-paste same config for all blogs.

  3. I totally love the new Support and I am happy that I finally can do something back for you guys in a financial way!

    Keep up the good work!

  4. I think this plugin is amazing. Thanks to your work and version 3.0, I decided to develop in WordPress.
    If you continue with menus I’ll be very grateful.
    I’m Testing WMPL to develop multi language sites and I worry that publishers forget to apply the same categories in all languages.
    It would be prefect When you translate a post or page that has selected categories, these categories were pre-selected in the post that you are translating.
    Does anyone have any idea how to do this?.

  5. I think that supporting the new WP 3.x features will be the most important. Menus are a big part of WP3.0 and people will want to be able to use menus in different languages.

    Good plugin by the way.

  6. Buddypress multilingual is the next big thing…buddypress is on the verge of explosion with the easy integration in wp 3.0.

  7. I’d say multilingual menus. Are you planning on supporting the new WordPress 3.0 menu system? If so, do you have a time estimate on when?

    Thanks for a great plugin!

    • We’re certainly planning. Problem is, like I wrote here, we have quite a few things pending and are looking for more funding. Without additional funding, we’ll get there too, but it’s going to take a while.

      • Good to hear it’s on the agenda. In the meantime, do you know how I can get the WordPress menu to show up when WPML is activated? I can only see my custom menu for the default language, all other languages defaults to a listing of all top-level pages.


  8. Dear Sirs:

    Congratulations for you well done WPML plugin.

    We are using Buddypress and would appreciate your information regarding the availability of Buddypress Multilingual for BP version 1.2.5.

    This because we want to convert our site to multilingual and after testing WPML we found that Buddypress Multilingual version 1.0 is not running on BP 1.2.5.

    Depending on your answer we will take the decision to install WPML and wait for new BP Multilingual or to use QTranslate and Buddypress and qTranslate plugin.

    Thanks for your attention.

    • Thanks for the compliment. We’re running a bit short on resources, which is why we didn’t release a new version for BuddyPress Multilingual.

      We’re spending all our developers’ time towards WPML 2.0, hoping to get it out in about 3 weeks. Then, we’ll see.

      If anyone wants to help in our efforts, the best way to support us is to purchase support subscriptions. This drives in new cash and allows us to put more developers on WordPress work.
