Google Translate integration with WordPress
Installing and activating the Google Language Translator plugin is the first step you need to do. After the plugin has been activated, go to Settings » Google Language Translator to set it up.
Check that the box next to the plugin status is selected. Following that, you must decide which languages will be available for translation as well as the default language for your website. Simply save your plugin settings when you are finished.
Go to Appearance » Widgets after saving the Google Language Translator plugin’s settings. Add the “Google Language Translator” widget to the sidebar of your blog.
Preview the Google translator on your website after saving your widget.
Users of your website can translate it themselves using Google Translate in addition to reading translations of your website. By making suggestions to Google translation, your readers can even contribute to improving the machine translation of any page. In fact, if you have a sizable readership, you may be able to recruit volunteers to translate your entire website.
We hope that adding Google Translate to your WordPress website was made easier by this guide. Other browsers do not automatically include a translation option when they identify a different language on the website than Google Chrome does.
