What is qPoly

qPoly add-on allows users to use Polylang similar to how the qTranslate plugin works. It is most useful when a theme does not support string translations, and yet you intend on using it. qPoly works by separating different language contents on the same page, using shortcodes.

How to use?

Insert text inside the qPoly shortcode. Use the 'lang' attribute to specify the language using ISO 639-1 codes.

[qpoly lang="es"]Text content[/qlopy]

Compatible languages

qPoly works with all Polylang supported languages. It accepts 2 character language codes from the ISO 639-1 standard. These can be found at:
