WordPress Website Translation Services
July 13, 2011
WordPress.com announced that there are now more than 50 million blogs powered by WordPress's open source CMS. Almost 25 million blogs are hosted at WordPress.com while the rest are hosted on users own servers and domain names.
Over the years, WordPress has become the most popular blogging platform and web content management system. WordPress is used by a wide variety of individuals and business including some very "big names" like WSJ Magazine, TechCrunch, The Ford Story and All Things Digital.
Over 287 million people view more than 2.5 billion pages on WordPress each month. On an average day, WordPress.com users create about 500,000 new posts and 400,000 new comments, according to WordPress' official stats.
WordPress Plug-Ins are applications that enhance WordPress CMS capabilities and add more useful functions that are not available on that platform. The Plug-Ins could be for SEO, social media features, analytics, stats reports, and much more. You can consult the WordPress Plug-In Directory to discover all the available Plug-Ins.
WordPress Website Translation Services
If you wish to have a multilingual WordPress website that is localized into different languages, you will need a translation agency that has extensive experience using global best practices for the design, development, deployment and content translation of multilingual WordPress websites. This requires far more than just machine translation to ensure that the language versions of your website are produced in a cost-effective, time-efficient and culturally-correct manner.
WordPress Translation Plug-In for Multilingual Websites
WordPress is a powerful open source platform, but without a plug-in, multilingual content management would require manually cutting and pasting from various sections of the website within the CMS to export it when you need to extract your content for translation.
GPI's translation Plug-In for WordPress enables users to export and import text, posts, pages, custom fields, terms and navigation content individually or all at once, with just a few clicks.
This Plug-In is built for human translation as part of our services to ensure easy translation services integration, a simplified export/import process and content exported as industry standard XLIFF. All of this is done seamlessly from within WordPress.
The WordPress Plug-In would enable more cost-effective and efficient translation workflows for WordPress website translation. It is easy to install and integrate into your WordPress platform, to enable export and import of content and initiate professional human translation workflows with a single click.
WordPress Translation Plug-In Benefits:
- Easy integration with WordPress
- Simplifies import/export process for content translation workflows
- 24/7 secure access for your global teams to collaborate and track translation projects
