If you are someone who is getting visitors from various countries or you want to gain visitors from various locations of the world and are willing to diversify the reach of your content, then this is the right blog for you. You will need to make available your content in various languages. If you are wondering how then this is the right blog for you. In this guide, we will show you the process of translating the content of your website to other languages.
The first step is to finalize the language into which you want to create the site
When you start the process, you have to begin by activating the TranslatePress plugin for this process. This is the initial part of the process. When you are done activating the plugin, now you have to go to the settings of the plug-in. Here you will see the tab for TranslatePress. This will complete the basic configuration. When you do this, you will have to click on the language that your website is using right now. Then pick the language in which you want to convert the website into.
Pick the way for the content translation
When you have selected the language, you will then have to select the method of translation. This you can see at the tab of automatic translation. With the help of this tab, you can either decide to automatically translate the content of your website. Or you can go by some other option for translation. There are many ways in which you can translate the content and even use some of the tools for the process. One of the simplest ways is going by Google Translate. For this, you need to create a Google translate API key. This will sync you to the service of the tool. During this process of selecting and generating, you will see that TranslatePress is ready to translate the website’s content into the language. These translations can also be edited later on. But the process will be manual for that.
Configuration of language switch as per the preference of the visitor
If you do not set the language switcher on TranslatePress then it sets it by default only. This language switcher will also let your visitor pick the language as per their preferences. If you don’t want to do it by the default way, there is another method to complete this process. For this process, you have to go to the dedicated menu option. For this, you first have to reach the appearance section and then the menu bar. This will also have a code to put on your website. Then you can edit the PHP file theme template. These options are simple and can be easily configured. For this, you have to go to the language switcher. After you have done the editing and changes, don’t forget to save it.
Time to translate the content
When you have completed the above steps, it is now time that you begin with the translation of the website content. When you are using TranslatePress for your website, it is a beneficial decision because it will help you in the translation of the entire content from your WordPress website. To translate the content, you have to tap the transfer page tab. This interface is easily accessible by this step. And the one which we mentioned earlier about the default TranslatePress language switcher. This translation editor’s interface is very similar to that of the WordPress customizer. You can take the help of the drag-and-drop feature then pick the right folder. While translating the content, don’t forget to translate the URL and other data too.
