How to Add Google Translate in WordPress

August 10, 2019

Hey there and thanks for watching WPBeginner.
Today I’ll show you how to add Google translate in WordPress. If you have visitors from other countries
landing on your site, you can add Google translate to make it easier for them to read your content. First you want to install and activate the
Google language translator plugin. Next go to settings–>Google language translator
to configure. We want to make sure that the plugin status is checked to activate it. And we’ll select the original language for your site for me it will be English. Choose which languages to translate into and if you want to show the country flags you can do so here. We’ll keep the rest as the default and click
save. Next, we can go to appearance–>widget to
add the google lanuage translator widget to my sidebar. Now in the front we can see what the site looks like. I can pick another language to see the content and how it changes here.

  1. how can I install Google Translate into word press and have it only pop up as a floating widget if the visitors browser is set to a language other than English?

  2. Great example ! Google translates "Home" into "Maison" (= "house"). You do NOT want your readers to view a google-translated version of your website, it will look ridiculous and unprofessional.

  3. Thanks for uploading video on google translate plugin for wordpress. Now sure it will help my user to read content easily in their languages. And it will easy for me to grab foreign user for Myinfostake blog by implementing google translator.

  4. Great example, but I'm having issues with the widget. I'm a native Dutchy, but when I translate my website to Dutch, it's giving me faulty grammar. Is there a way to edit the translation myself?

    Thanks in advance!

  5. How can I instead add Google Translate to my site and have the pop up prompt only trigger when it recognizes a non-English language browser?
    This was built into my old Google Sites website but not in WordPress.
