WordPress powers over 25% of all websites worldwide, and now most of these can be translated automatically, thanks to a new widget powered by Google Translate.
WordPress.com has launched a new widget that lets bloggers and readers translate websites into over 100 languages. The widget is powered by Google Translate, a proven institution when it comes to online translation.
The widget needs to be set up by the blogger who wishes to make his content available in other languages. For this, you will need to head to the “My Site(s)” section of your WordPress.com dashboard, select “Customize” and “Widgets.” Once set, your visitors will be able to change the language of your website via a new “Select Language” option.
Unfortunately, this new option is only available for websites hosted on WordPress.com, and not for self-hosted websites using the open-source WordPress infrastructure.
WordPress (both hosted and self-hosted) powers over one quarter of all websites. To this day, over 2.5 billion blog posts across 137 languages have been published on WordPress. Multiply that by 103 languages, and you can imagine how much web traffic can be generated!
No blog post will remain unread!
