WPML’s Go-Global helps turn WordPress themes and plugins into fully multilingual-ready.

WPML Compatibility Means More Sales and Less Support

Multilingual-ready themes and plugins get more sales. Many European, South American and Asian sites need to be multilingual, so offering it to them opens a huge market for you.

By helping you turn your code into 100% multilingual-ready, we make it easier for all of us. When your clients run multilingual sites, they require less support from us and from you.

It’s a win-win-win situation. You get more sales, WPML sells more, we all spend less time on support. Most importantly, clients receive better products and are happier.

We Promote Multilingual-Ready Themes and Plugins

Once your code is compatible with WPML, we announce it to all WPML clients on our social media channels, we also add to the list of multilingual-ready themes or multilingual-ready plugins. We will ask you to do the same so our clients know that your theme or plugin is compatible with WPML.

Who WPML’s Go Global is Intended For

  • Original theme and plugin authors can register to WPML’s Go Global program.
  • Public themes and plugins are welcome. Anything that you distribute (not “work-for-hire”) can be accepted to WPML’s Go Global program.
