  • You can use Google, Azure, Yandex, Lingvanex to help you with the translation (DeepL services may be included in later versions)
  • Displays the default language if the content is not yet translated
  • The Language Switcher widget is configurable to display flags and/or language names
  • Language Switcher can be put in Menu, Header, Footer, Sidebars

  • Language Code directly in the URL
  • No extra database tables created, no content duplication
  • Very good website speed performance (low impact)

  • Falang is not meant for WordPress multisite installations!

I've been using this plugin for months and I found it very simple and intuitive. When I had some doubts I always received a solution from the support (thanks Stephane!)

I recently installed this plugin and was pleasantly surprised by how easy it was to use. One of the things I liked the most is the ability to translate almost anything directly from the frontend. Simply switch to the Falang tab and you have access to all the translation strings you need. Adding a language switcher is also easy with the widget feature. I also appreciated the option to customize the default flags with my own solution. Even if you have experience with other translation tools, you won’t need to consult the documentation as the interface is intuitive. In my experience, it worked well with other plugins I use, such as German Market and ACF. The only exception was Borlabs cookie, but the Borlabs team released an update that fixed the issue. One thing to be aware of is that if you use this plugin with WooCommerce in combination with Math Rank, or Yoast SEO, you should avoid removing the shop base as it may cause issues. I used the pro version for Yootheme light, as the free version only allows you to translate headlines and text fields. While the pro version is not particularly expensive, the real value comes from the exceptional support provided by the developer, Stéphane. He is quick to respond and goes above and beyond to help solve any issues you may encounter.

He usat aquest plugin en els darrers projectes que he fet. Molt fàcil d'incorporar i d'usar, usable i adaptable a tot. Quan he tingut algun problema, el suport ha estat efectiu i ràpid, i això que només estava usantla versió free. molt recomenable
