Summary: Multi-language Plugin(s)

Re the action for me (Simon Wheatley) to open source my multi-language plugin as part of the “i18n improvements” session.

The Babble multi-language plugin we wrote for and used on Free Speech Debate, is now available on GitHub at The plugin handles translating posts in all post types and terms in all taxonomies, though the translation of terms badly needs a workflow. Translation of widgets and menus is currently not covered by the plugin, and in the future I’d like to see a much more “work queue” style system for the translation teams in the various languages.

Please feel free to comment, raise issues, fork, submit pull requests, etc.

If you like the approach of using custom post types and taxonomies to store the translations, it’s also worth looking at the Multi-Language Framework plugin by HackLab.
