One WordPress Installation, Multiple Languages

WPML comes with over 40 languages. You can also add your own language variants (like Canadian French or Mexican Spanish) using WPML’s languages editor.

You can arrange different language contents in the same domain (in language directories), in sub-domains or in completely different domains.

Powerful Translation Management

Building a multilingual site is the first step. The challenge begins when your clients need to run it. They’re going to love you for choosing WPML!

WPML comes with state-of-the-art translation management. You can turn ordinary WordPress users into Translators. Translators can access only specific translation jobs which Editors assign to them.
