Is your website multilingual?- If no then you are missing out on a large amount of traffic because of this. 

One way to translate your website is to seek help from a professional. Another way is to automatically translate your WordPress website with the help of the plugin.  

Let’s take a look on how to automatically translate WordPress website.

Automatically Translate WordPress Website

Step 1: Install and Setup the Plugin

Before we begin, you need to login to your WordPress dashboard and install a Weglot translate plugin. Weglot is a free WordPress translation plugin that lets you translate your website into multiple languages. Once you’ve installed it, activate the plugin and go to your settings by clicking on Weglot on your dashboard panel on the left side. There you’ll see an API field. 

Step 2: Complete Set Up Process

To get your API Key, go to the official page of Weglot plugin. There, you need to sign up or create a new one if you don’t already have an account.  

Once, you’ve created the account, you can start a free trial. You’ll receive an email to activate your account from the team of Weglot. Once you click on the link in that email, you’ll be taken to the Weglot dashboard where you can grab your API key.

Now, copy-paste the API key into the empty box field. Next, choose the current language of your site from the drop down option. In other words, choose the language in which you write your content.  


Then select the language in which you want to translate your content into. It is represented by two digit country codes. You can click on the link given there to see the list of code for all supported languages. 

Step 3: Customize and Manage Translation

That was all about translating your website. Now, it’s time to customize the appearance of the language switcher button. This button allows your visitors to switch the language of your website to whichever they prefer. 

Finally, click on the save button and the plugin will automatically translate your website. You can go and check the translation live to see if it’s done properly or not. 

You can also edit and improve the translation from the Weglot editing tool directly from the dashboard.

That’s it! You’ve successfully translated your WordPress website.
