Multisite Language Switcher

Please keep in mind that the version of the Multisite Language Switcher at GitHub is a work in progress.

Run composer install --no-dev if you plan to use the repository anyways.

Download the latest stable from the WordPress Plugin Directory and please, don't forget to give this plugin a star.

Build Status Scrutinizer Code Quality

A simple, powerful and easy to use plugin that will add multilingual support to a WordPress multisite installation, i.e. multiple subdomains or folders (if you need to set up multiple sites across multiple domains, you'll also want to use the WordPress MU Domain Mapping plugin as well - as long as the domains are all hosted on the same server.).

The Multisite Language Switcher enables you to manage translations of posts, pages, custom post types, categories, tags and custom taxonomies.

The plugin uses flag-icons from FamFamFam. Thanks to Mark James for his great work. In addition I would like to thank Jürgen Mayer for creating the plugin's banner.

Installation

  • Download the plugin and uncompress it with your preferred unzip programme
  • Copy the entire directory in your plugin directory of your WordPress blog (/wp-content/plugins)
  • Activate the plugin in your plugin administration page (by the network administrator on all the blogs or by the root blog administrator for each particular blog).
  • You need to activate the plugin once in each blog, set the configuration in Options -> Multisite Language Switcher

Now you can:

  • connect your translated pages and posts in Posts -> Edit or Page -> Edit
  • connect your translated categories and tags in Posts -> Categories or Post -> Tags
  • connect your Custom Post Types and Custom Taxonomies across languages
  • use the widget, the shortcode [sc_msls] and/or a content_filter which displays a hint to the user if a translation is available
  • optionally you can place the PHP code <?php if ( function_exists( 'the_msls' ) ) the_msls(); ?> directly in your theme files

Review the Multisite Language Switcher Website for more information.

Translators

Thanks to all translators for their great work.

If you have created your own language pack, or have an update of an existing one, you can send me your gettext PO and MO so that I can bundle it into the Multisite Language Switcher. You can download the latest POT file from here.
