Essential Multilingual Plugins
We work with other authors to ensure compatibility with WordPress plugins. These are major plugins that are multilingual-ready.
Toolset plugins allow to build WordPress sites quickly and easily. They work with any theme and let you develop sites without programming. You will be able to design layouts with drag and drop, display content anyway you choose and create forms for front-end content editing.
With Toolset, you can create brochure sites quickly, build custom e-commerce sites, develop classifieds and listing sites and more.
Toolset plugins are completely compatible with WPML, so anything that you build with Toolset is also multilingual-ready.
Search Engine Optimization
Yoast SEO is an all-around solution for optimizing WordPress sites for search engines. The plugin lets you specify titles and description for any WordPress content and archive page and shows how each page will appear in Google search results.
It includes a language configuration file that tells WPML which strings require translation. This way, you can translate everything, without having to configure anything.
WooCommerce Multilingual allows you to translate anything that you build with WooCommerce. It is completely compatible with the core WooCommerce functionality and also supports many popular WooCommerce extensions.
While the built-in WordPress search leaves much to be desired, Relevanssi fills the gap beautifully. It lets users search and find what they’re looking for. You can download Relevanssi for free from the WordPress repository or purchase the pro-version from Relevanssi.com.
Both versions of Relevanssi run smooth with WPML and return search results in the current language.
Admin Page Order
If your site has hundreds, or thousands of pages, it may be a bit difficult to find them in the WordPress Admin. CMS Tree Page View presents your pages in a hierarchical tree, which you can expand and collapse. It works smooth with WPML and displays the correct tree per language.
