    Multilingual WordPress

    Hello,
    Right now I'm working on a new website in which I have to implement two languages.
    Website is in WordPress. I make the theme from scratch.
    But the only way I can make this website multilingual is by some kind of plugin.
    I have found WPML plugin but it doesn't work properly.
    Now I'm testing qTranslate. Not sure about that yet.

    Generally, what is you opinion about making WP multilingual:
    1. Is there another quite simple way than installing plugin?
    2. If not, what plugin do you recommend?

    Thanks

    I don't know if this is a practical option for you or not, but some years ago while working for an online casino, we had an actual German-speaking copywriter and she'd translate what the Eanglash writer wrote.

    Reason being that online translators apparently sounded very funny in their target languages. (For some perspective, think about how funny "Engrish" sounds to us.)


    With that strategy, as far as a Wordpress site goes, it would just be a matter of making an Author or Editor account for each of the writers, filtering them out and serving them up onto your template in some way. Maybe using categories or subpages.


    Again, I don't know if that'd be a practical solution for you, but it might be a better solution if it's possible.

    Thank you Shaun
    But I've found great plugin for that.
    I've already tested qTranslate. And it's working like a charm.
