WordPress localization

Do you use WordPress as your content management system? Do you plan to publish a website and make it available in several languages?  With SimulTrans' integration with WordPress Multilingual Plugin (WPML), it is easy.

WordPress

WordPress is an open-source free content management system (CMS). It is the most widely used website CMS around. According to W3Techs, about 63% of all CMS-based websites are operated with WordPress.

Here are some of the advantages:

  • A free system that can be scaled easily and cheaply
  • Easy to work thanks to a good structure and simple operation
  • SEO-friendly platform

Multilingual Websites

The rapid growth of e-Commerce has increased the number of WordPress users and the need for translation of websites to reach international customers. In addition to this, research by CSA Research has found that:

  • 75 % of online shoppers prefer to buy products with information in their native language 
  • 40 % will never buy from websites in other languages

This means that having a website translated into multiple languages will allow any company to reach a larger international audience and increase sales and customer satisfaction.

WPML Plugin

The WordPress Multilingual Plugin (WPML) is a multilingual extension that allows you to publish new languages on your website within the CMS dashboard. You can simply request translations by selecting SimulTrans as your translation service provider using the WPML Translation Manager in your WordPress backend.
