View a Step-by-step Instruction on Multilanguage Installation


Does Multilanguage plugin translate website content automatically?

Yes, you can add Google Auto Translate switcher using widget or via the corresponding shortcode.

How do I change the language my content is displayed in?

You can change content display language through the widget, which is activated automatically when you activate the plugin if you have an active sidebar. If you have several active sidebars, the widget is added to the sidebar, which features a search widget. But if you do not have an active sidebar, you need to create it and add Multilanguage widget manually.

Where do I get these language packs of the extra languages?

You can find all official translation files in WordPress language repository.

So whenever I change the language for my content, WordPress localization in the frontend also changes?

In the plugin settings, you can enable/disable an option to switch WordPress localization when the language is changed in the frontend. If you enable this option, you must install additional language packs for WordPress to have this function working. However, in the backend, WordPress localization corresponds to the default language, and cannot be changed.

There is no adding block for Multilanguage switcher in Edit Menus

It seems like this block is disabled in Screen Options of your page. Please open Screen Options on the page (in the upper right corner of the screen) and enable Multilanguage checkbox.

Can I use Multilanguage plugin on a multisite?

Yes, you can use Multilanguage on a multi-site without any problems as well. The plugin settings on each site will be unique.

How can I add more alternate links for current page?

You can use ‘bwsplgns_mltlngg_add_alt_links’ filter to do that. For example, you want that search engines firstly indexed exactly English-language pages of your site for people from New Zealand and South Africa. Just add the following code into “functions.php” of your theme:

function get_additional_links( $links_attr ) {
    /* English for New Zealand */
    $links_attr[] = array( 'hreflang' => 'en_NZ', 'link_param' => 'en_GB' );
    /* English for South Africa */
    $links_attr[] = array( 'hreflang' => 'en_ZA', 'link_param' => 'en_GB' );
    return $links_attr;
add_filter( 'bwsplgns_mltlngg_add_alt_links', 'get_additional_links' );

Note: before you have to choose English (for England) as one of languages of your website.

I added several whitespaces between words during the post content editing in the text mode. They are gone after I switched to the visual mode. Why?

After the mode switching, the post content has been automatically filtered to remove all odd symbols or HTML tags which can disrupt pages layout on your website. This functionality is related to WordPress core and our plugin does not affect it in any way.

When title and content is empty, none of the changes get saved when I update the post

When title and content fields in active language tab are empty when you are trying to update the post after editing, the changes will not be saved and an error message will appear. You need to fill at least one field or switch to another language tab (which contains some content in the specified input fields) and try to update once again.

How can I change element’s style in the frontend for certain language?

“mltlngg-{current language slug}” class type has been added to <body> tag for an ability to stylize content of certain language. For example, if you want to set a green color for <p> when the English language is selected, it is necessary to:
1. Go to WordPress admin panel “Multilanguage” -> “Custom Code”;
2. Check off “Activate” in “Editing bws-custom-code.css” block and enter the following code:

.mltlngg-en_US p {
    color: green;
  1. Save changes.

How can I add a language that is not in the list?

You can add the necessary language by adding the appropriate line with language data to “languages.php” file (wp-content/plugins/multilanguage/include/languages.php).
Follow the next steps:
1. Find the wp-content/plugins/multilanguage/include/languages.php using the FTP software.
2. Open the languages.php file in a text editor.
3. Add a language following the example of others from the list.
4. Save changes.
5. Add the corresponding flag icon image (png, 16x11px) to the ‘images/flags/’ folder using the FTP software.

When done, update the plugin settings page and you’ll see the added language in the languages list.

In order to find the correct language name and language locale please visit the following page:

Totally useless plugin, unless you buy the pro version you are stuck with HTTP and no HTTPS option is available to non paying users, not nice.
2021년 12월 12일
the idea of the functionality is just super! but... gives a lot of errors when switching to languages. result: I decided to abandon this plugin.

Can't translate menu. So useless for me.

At first: Yes the Plugin offers to implement several Languages on your Website. If you also want translated Titles of your Articles, you have to buy the Pro Version. I bought it and then all Problems starting. After I activated my License for the Pro Version and installed the Pro Version, WordPress started to show issues. First, I noticed that my Views from Users not counting anymore, then I noticed that the wrong Language is shown when you use your Default Language. I thought, "okay, let's write with the Support, maybe they have a solution for that", but then everything was going Crazy on my Website. I got "Internal Errors" I did not have any chance to reach my Admin-Panel anymore and all of my Articles not working anymore! After all, I had to reinstall the Core-Files of WordPress and renew my htaccess.php - It seems the Plugin destroys the File-Structure of your Permalinks. Now my Website works normally, but I had to translate my translated Articles back to my own Language because only the Texts of the wrong Language existed after deactivating the Plugins. After I finished repairing everything, I requested a Refund. I will see if I get my money back. I will tell you if I got it.
