Translating Blog into Different Languages with WordPress Plugins

I was inspired by some’s share which argues how to optimize blog with translation tools. If you don’t know any foreign languages, it’s definitely a shortcut to create contents for readers who are from different countries. However, there’s no translator that can reach 100% accuracy, and thus the revision by native speakers is extremely important. In this post, I’d like to share the functionalities of the plugin Transposh that I installed in WordPress.

How to Activate and Use Transposh

In the WordPress admin page, press Plugins and search for translation. Transposh will appear in the first row of the search results. Click Install Now:

translation_plugins

Switch to Transposh, and check the languages you want to show readers. By default, only five languages are available for options. Besides English, I selected Japanese, Korean, Chinese and Arabic:

translation_languages

If you want readers to correct translated contents, you can enable Anonymous in Settings:

translation_translator

Then, you can click Translate All Now to make the plugin work:

translation_translate

Finally, drag the widget from the widgets panel to sidebar:

translation_widget

Let’s take a glimpse of how translated contents look like. Here is the original blog homepage with a translation widget:

translation_origin

When I choose Japanese, the page is translated as following:

translation_japanese

It’s cool, but actually I have no idea whether the Japanese content is accurate or not. Luckily, as long as the Anonymous is enabled in Settings, any Japanese readers will have the permission to revise and correct the contents by clicking the editing button:

translation_edit

It’s pretty interesting. With the translation plugin, you can share your ideas to more readers.
