TranslatePress as our fourth choice in our WordPress translation plugins list is one of the most easy-to-use translation plugins ever and somehow the only plugin with such a rich front-end visual editor that even supports famous page builders like WPBakery and Elementor too.

If we put language count limitation aside, the free version of TranslatePress is quite a catch in the industry, that offers features like real-time front-end editor for translation, translating strings, and manual and automatic translation.

Polylang with more than +500,000 active installations from its initial release in 2011 is one of the most powerful WordPress translation plugins and therefore our last choice in this ultimate collection.

The free version of Polylang offers features like translate posts, pages, media, categories, tags, custom post types, custom taxonomies, menus, widgets, subdirectories, subdomains or separate domains and also a compatibilty for WPML API so you can migrate to Polylang from it.

Final Thoughts:

I hope you have enjoyed this look at the best WordPress translation plugins on the market.

As always, I highly recommend testing multiple solutions to get a better understanding of what is available and which plugin or service fits your needs best, as one size does not fit all.

If you manage a corporate website or an online store, you may want to hire a professional translation service to manually translate key pages for targeted regions.

Blogs and other websites that publish a high volume of content may want to consider subscribing to an automatic translation service so that every new post or page is translated.

Those of you who don’t want to spend a lot of money on translation may want to consider manually translating content using free translation services such as Google Translate. This can be a time-consuming endeavour, but it gives you full control over what is published and keeps translation costs low.
