Nowadays, the internet is a business-generating power. That’s why a lot of great CMSs are used to build websites by millions of people around the world. A saddening thing is that while they are so easily accessible, they very often don’t have built-in capability to create multilingual websites and online shops. Luckily, there are some great e-commerce and website translation plugins out there, varying in options and pricing. In this blog, we show you the best ones!
WPML is a premium website translation plugin that allows you to translate all your posts and pages. Unlike most other translation plugins, WPML is compatible with most major WordPress themes and plugins, so you don’t have to patch your themes or plugins to make WPML work.
WPML allows you to extract your website’s content into XLIFF, which is a CAT Tool friendly file format, which you can translate in your TMS (such as Text United). The pricing plan starts from 29 USD for one website.
Polylang is another website translation plugin that allows you to easily create a multilingual or bilingual WordPress site. It comes with a simple interface to easily add translations for your posts, pages, custom post types, and widgets. The best thing? The base plugin is free. You can get a Pro version for €99.
Weglot is a cloud-based website translation platform that works with the most popular CMSs and online shop systems such as WordPress, Shopify, BigCommerce, and many more, which is definitely its biggest benefit.
You will have to use Weglot’s website, though, to translate all your content, manage translations, and push them to your live website. The prices start at €8.25 a month for 1 language and 10,000 Words.
Langify is one of the website translation plugins that helps you to easily translate your e-commerce, including collections, products, product variants, pages (including the checkout page) as well as blog posts, which makes it a very versatile tool for e-commerce translation.
Langify currently supports the following file formats for import or export of your content: CSV, PO/MO (gettext), XLIFF, JSON. It comes with 3 days free trial, then every month is $17,50.

It also automatically detects visitor’s language, it supports multiple currency converters and makes it easy to control multilingual content from one page. It’s $17,99 a month and it comes with 3 days free trial.
#Bonus: Text United
Yes, we know that Text United is not really a plugin. However, we provide advanced website translation solutions (such as website editor that allows you to translate your website live, integrated machine translation and human review, translation memory and many more) so it would be only wrong if we didn’t mention it!
We are not tied to one platform or an online shop provider, so you have more freedom than with website translation plugins that provide features for a specific CMS. There is no limit on the number of languages and websites you want to translate, either.
