Translate Stackable Blocks Using Weglot
Weglot is a WordPress translation plugin that can be used to create multilingual websites.
With Weglot, you can translate your content into multiple languages, then edit and proofread your translations before publishing them live on your website.
Translate Your WordPress Website Using Weglot
To make translations available on your website, you can follow these steps:
1. Create a Weglot account
To begin using Weglot, you will first need to create a Weglot account.
2. Create a Project
After creating your account and confirming your email address, you will be directed to your Weglot dashboard.
Once you’re in your dashboard, click Create a project.
You will be asked to name your project and to select the CMS that you’re using for your website.
Type in a Project Name and select WordPress for the Website Technology drop down menu.
After you have created your Weglot project, you will be brought to the Setup page. Here, you will find your API key which you will need for the following steps.
3. Download and Activate Weglot on your WordPress dashboard
Go to Plugins > Add New.
Type in Weglot in the Search bar.
Download and activate the Weglot plugin.
4. Setup Weglot
You will find Weglot settings on the top toolbar menu. Hover over it and click Plugin settings.
You will now be brought to Weglot’s Main configuration page, which looks like this:
Copy the API Key you were given in Step 2 and paste it into the API Key field in the Weglot Main configuration page.
Then select your website’s original language in the Original language drop down menu.
Finally, input the languages that you want to translate your website into in the Destination languages field.
In our example below, we selected Korean and Japanese. Click Save Changes.
That’s it! Your website is now multilingual!
When you head to your website, you will now see the small Language button on the bottom right of your page.
Select from the language options you’ve added and your page will now be translated!
Manually Translate Strings in Weglot
You can also edit translation strings manually.
First, log in to your Weglot account.
Then you can manage your translations on your Weglot dashboard.
Click on any of your translated languages and you will be able to manually edit your translations.
As an example, in the first entry “A WordPress blog made with Stackable”, the word Stackable was translated in Korean but we want to keep the word Stackable as English.
Click the Save button (check icon) and head back to your website. The change should be reflected on your website like in the image below:
With Weglot translations seamlessly integrated with Stackable, reaching a global audience has never been easier!
