Plugin / ICanLocalize Translator




“ICanLocalize Translator” allows running multi-lingual WordPress websites (See the 5 minute demo).
It helps maintain contents in different languages and automatically links between them.

  • Blog in your native language. Translations will be created automatically.
  • Use different domains,,, or directories within the same domain.
  • Updates are handled automatically. When the original contents update, translations follow.

WordPress supports contents in a single language. To make multi-lingual WordPress sites insensitive to upgrades and to other plugins,
ICanLocalize Translator doesn’t change any table structure and doesn’t alter permlinks. Instead, each language will run in its own WordPress instance.

Is this machine translation?

Unlike free machine translators, this plugin will send posts and pages to be translated by real people.
You can select from our pool of professional translators or assign the work to your favorite translator.

This plugin works together with ICanLocalize Comment Translator Plugin.
