For several years qTranslate has been one of the best plugins in the official WordPress repository.But as time goes on, its update frequency is getting slower and slower, but it has not been completely abandoned for the time being, and it has not been deleted from the warehouse in 2015.
qTranslate-X is a repaired plugin from qTranslate, which means that few people use it anymore.In fact, the new version of the plugin also has many new features that the original qTranslate does not have.
This plugin is similar to Polylang.After installation, you need to select the default source language and other languages you add to your site, and create a unique two-letter code for each supported language.However, qTranslate-X comes pre-set with flag icons and codes for the 25 most common languages for your convenience.
The language code shows which language the content is written in.This is also good for search engine optimization.By recording each type of text to a unique URL address, search engines can index your content multiple times.
When a user visits your site, he is automatically directed to a page in the language he wants.They can also switch languages using a dedicated widget.
You can also switch to the desired language by selecting the desired language on the top of the toolbar. You can easily find it so that you will not be overwhelmed by not knowing the language.
Only human translation is possible with this plugin.When you find the WordPress visual editor, you can see flag icons for all enabled languages.You can click these icons to switch the text editor for each language without reloading the language page.This means you can write content in multiple languages at the same time.
You can also use qTranslate-Х to display multiple languages in any text area.For example, if you want all of your content to be displayed in English except the "Buy" button in other languages, this plugin can help you translate into various languages.
And there are other plugins that ensure qTranslate-X works with some of the more commonly used WordPress plugins, including:
- WooCommerce and qTranslate-X
- Yoast SEO and qTranslate-X
- All in One SEO and qTranslate-X
- Gravity Forms and qTranslate-X
- WPBakery Visual Composer and qTranslate-X
All of these plugins, including the membership version, are available for free from the official WordPress repository.
But now in 2020, it is difficult to find QTranslate, so it is recommended not to use it.
