WPML Multilingual CMS

The core plugin turns WordPress multilingual. It adds the basic translation controls and allows translating content.

WPML String Translation

The String Translation plugin allows to translate interface strings directly from within WordPress without having to use .mo files.

The String Translation plugin allows more than just translating static texts. It also lets you translate user-generated texts that are outside of posts and pages. For example, the tagline and SEO data.

WPML Translation Management

When your clients receive their newly created multilingual site, your work ends and their work begins. The Translation Management plugin helps site admins manage their translation work. They will turn normal users into translators, send jobs to them and track progress of the site’s translation status.

WPML Media Translation

This plugin allows using the WordPress Gallery in different languages. You can control which images will display for each language.

WPML Sticky Links

The Sticky Links plugin keeps internal links from ever breaking. It automatically tracks linked pages in your site and keeps all incoming links up-to-date. When you change permalink structure, hierarchy and even page slugs, all incoming links update immediately.

WPML CMS Navigation

The CMS Navigation plugin adds navigational elements which you can use when building the site. This includes a breadcrumbs trail, drop-down menus and sidebar navigation.
