Multilingual / Globalization: URL-based multilanguage; easy translation interface, compatible with Yoast SEO, All in One SEO Pack and ACF!


WPGlobus is a family of WordPress plugins assisting you in making bilingual / multilingual WordPress blogs and sites.


The WPGlobus Free Core plugin provides you with the main multilingual tools.

  • Manually translate posts, pages, categories, tags menus and widgets; NOTE: WPGlobus does NOT translate texts automatically! To see how it works, please read the Quick Start Guide;
  • Add one or several languages to your WP blog/site using custom combinations of country flags, locales and language names;
  • Enable multilingual SEO features of Yoast SEO and All in One SEO plugins;
  • Switch the languages at the front-end using: a drop-down menu extension and/or a customizable widget with various display options;
  • Switch the Administrator interface language using a top bar selector;

The WPGlobus plugin serves as the foundation to other plugins in the family.

Free Add-ons

Premium Extensions

  • WooCommerce WPGlobus: adds multilingual capabilities to WooCommerce-based online stores.
  • WPGlobus Plus: adds URL fine-tuning, publishing status per translation, multilingual Yoast SEO analysis and more.

Compatibility with Themes

WPGlobus works correctly with all themes that apply proper filtering before outputting content. Some themes incorporate 3rd party plugins (e.g., sliders, forms, composers) - not all of them are 100% multilingual-ready. When you see elements that cannot be translated, please let the theme / plugin authors know. We are ready to help them.

More information:


IMPORTANT: WPGlobus will not work if your URLs look like or

Please go to Settings->Permalinks and change the permalink structure to non-default and with no index.php in it. If you are unable to do that for some reason, please talk to your hosting provider / systems administrator.

Developing on localhost or custom ports

WPGlobus may not work correctly on development servers having URLs like //localhost/mysite or on custom ports like // Please use a proper domain name (a fake one from /etc/hosts is OK) and port 80.
