    Can wordpress display content in multiple languages?

    If i created a blog in English but also wanted to give readers an option to read it in Say mandarin or other languages by displaying a link like read this in chinese? Can it be done? Is it very difficult?

    Thanks

    yes, it is possible. There is no functionality in wordpress to do that. You need to use Google Language tools in your wordpress.

    You may refer this plugin. http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/...lation-plugin/

    Is the translation accurate or close to it? That seems wonderful!

    If you are using wordpress , good news for you, a compact and fantastic plugin which translates your text to almost all languages, its called global translator just google it you will find the exact place to download. if you are showing google ads then you need to check what languages does google support keep those languages and uncheck all the other languages.

    I'm sure it's pretty close although may not always be exact because of slang words in certain languages.

    I believe, it's very useful though regardless.

    I'll go against the flow here... I think it's a bad idea to use a non-human translator for any content. The only way you can have adequate translation of any language, is by having a real human being do the translation, and one who has solid knowledge of both languages; the language the original text is written in, and the language the text is to be translated into.

    I don't think is a good idea to try to display content in other languages.

    I mean, the translation tools are far away from being accurate, and that causes your blog to look very ugly in other languajes. It's gonna be several years before an online translation tool can give us a good and reliable translation from any to any languaje.

    Regards.
