Top 3 Translation Plugins for WordPress [Categorised]

Listed here are the top 3 WordPress plugins for both professional translators and automated translations. These are rated based on the ease of use, stability and what is best for purpose use case. I think these would be a fantastic resource for someone starting out as a translator or looking to have content translated for their WordPress website.

 

For Professional Translators

1. TranslatePress

translatepress.com

Translatepress integrated with the WordPress customiser and allows text translation on the front end of the website directly. Unfortunately styling options for your language option list are limited so you will need to know CSS if you want to customise this. This plugin is simple and easy to use and is well maintained, top of every list all round objectively seems to be the best plugin. It even supports automatic translations, all for free.

 

2. Polylang

polylang.pro

Polylang works with your existing content and allows you and then define the language for each page, post, custom post, taxonomy etc. The translation of each post is optional and it also has a plugin for importing your existing translation data from WPML.
