Here is the List of WordPress Translation Plugins:

WordPress users know that it is a lot easier to translate any language into the desired language using the WordPress translation Plugins.

There are millions of Plugins available on the internet which can make your work much easier.

Here I will be sharing some best Language translator plugins; there are some I have already used.

1. Convey This:

If there is one truly convenient way to translate your website, it must be through ConveyThis!

Successfully re-launched in 2018, an award-winning ConveyThis’ team has brought the process of translating a website to the new level. It is the most translated language plugin in the WordPress directory (over 38 language contrubutions) and is growing fast. ConveyThis makes it very simple to integrate into WP website and activate as many as 100+ languages.

So, while you’ll configure some basic settings from your WordPress dashboard, your actual translations reside on ConveyThis’ servers, and you’ll manage your translations from the ConveyThis web dashboard rather than your WordPress site.

So, what are the benefits of that approach?

Well, the big one is convenience. As soon as you activate the plugin and choose your languages, ConveyThis uses automatic machine translation to translate your entire site, and adds a language switcher button. So within the first couple of minutes, you’ll already have a working, SEO-friendly multilingual site.

Then, if you want to manually manage those translations, you can go to the ConveyThis dashboard, where you get two different interfaces:

Text Editor — you see a side-by-side list of the original text and the translated version.

Visual Editor — you see a live preview of your site. To translate any text on your site, you just click on it.

Or, you can also outsource your translations to professional translation services right from the ConveyThis dashboard.

To ensure translation consistency, ConveyThis comes with a powerful GLOSSARY function. It can ensure that certains words or phrases are translated in only one way and not the other. Consider something like: ADIDAS. Do you want that brand name become ABIBAS in Brazilian Portuguese language? We doubt that!

Finally, all of your content is SEO-friendly:HREFLANG tags and sitemap.xml integrations. It even includes an integration for RankMath SEO to help you to translate your SEO titles and descriptions. 

The only potential downside with ConveyThis is price. While ConveyThis does have a limited free plan that lets you translate up to 2,500 words into one language, the paid plans use SaaS-style billing, which means you’ll need to continue to pay for as long as you want to use the service.

Paid plans start at €4 a month for one language and up to 10,000 words.

2. My Wp Translate:

Plugins and themes from MyThemeShop have always been my first choice, and even, this time, I will recommend you to use the My WP Translate plugin from MyThemeShop. It is one of the best and free used plugins. This is mostly used when you have a wider range of audiences, a global audience.

It will not only translate your content, but also will translate the plugins, and also offer multi-lingual searches. They also provide a paid plugin with the name “Wp Google Translate” it has some more amazing features than the ordinary one and translates your content into more than 80 languages.
