Discussion: Translation Plugin on Learn

As our work progresses on the Learning Pathways on Learn WordPress project, I’d like to start a discussion to help us address one of our 2024 team goals: Figure out a method to manage localized content translation

While the WordPress project aims to have native multilingual features in Phase 4, with the understanding that this is still a few years away, I’d like to explore interim solutions together to facilitate multilingual management on Learn WordPress.

I understand that numerous plugins are available that could enable us to better handle multilingual functionality, but we need the one that best suits our specific needs. Given our current requirements and Content Translator work, we are more inclined to those plugins that offer effective translation management rather than automatic translation.

To help bring perspective to this conversation, I’d like to invite you to share if you have any experience with such translations plugins on WordPress? If you have, please share your experiences and recommendations. Specifically, we’d like to know:

  1. What pluginPlugin A plugin is a piece of software containing a group of functions that can be added to a WordPress website. They can extend functionality or add new features to your WordPress websites. WordPress plugins are written in the PHP programming language and integrate seamlessly with WordPress. These can be free in the WordPress.org Plugin Directory https://wordpress.org/plugins/ or can be cost-based plugin from a third-party did you use?
  2. How user-friendly and efficient it was in managing translations within WordPress?
  3. What notable benefits did it bring to your site?
  4. Were there any drawbacks/limitations?
  5. Are there any other recommendations or considerations you can share?

Your insight will be incredibly valuable in helping us decide the best temporary solution so we can continue our mission to cater to a broader, multilingual audience as soon as possible.

Thank you team in advance for your invaluable help. 🙂
