Lingotek + WordPress = 60+ Top Multilingual Plugin Rankings & Proven Customer Results

WordPressAbout WordPress

WordPress is a free and open-source blogging tool and content management system (CMS) based on PHP and My SQL. WordPress began in 2003 and was created by Matt Mullenweg and Mike Little. Its primary support website is WordPress.org. The WordPress platform is used by over 25% of websites worldwide. Its plugin architecture allows users to add features and functionality to their website or blog.

Lingotek - Inside WordPressLingotek + PolyLang

Lingotek and Polylang, the most popular multilingual plugin for WordPress, formed a strategic partnership to ensure that the Lingotek - Inside WordPress Plugin has 100% plugin compatibility with Polylang. It was developed to let customers quickly automate translation of content directly inside WordPress using either machine, community, or professional translation.

Integration & Automation
Polylang translations had to be done by the site editor because it did not integrate with any machine or professional translation service. With the Lingotek - Inside WordPress plugin integration, Polylang can support all types of translation workflows from inside WordPress. The Lingotek - Inside WordPress Plugin gives users access to Lingotek’s translation management system (TMS) via its multilingual API 5.0 to build a consistent, up-to-date, multilingual website. The TMS has convenient features such as translation memory or easy-to-use, customizable translation workflows (machine translation + post edit + review) to simplify the process of creating and maintaining a multilingual website.

Challenge

WordPress users who only have an English blog or website, can only reach a fraction of potential site visitors. A Gallup survey of language preferences found that global customers don’t visit websites, browse the Internet, or buy on sites that aren’t in their native language.

Lingotek - Inside WordpressSolution

Lingotek - Inside WordPress Plugin
To extend your reach, WordPress users need an easy-to-use multilingual plugin to personalize your content and engage more global customers.

The Lingotek - Inside WordPress plugin is free and easy to use. It can quickly translate WordPress content using Lingotek’s Translation Management System (TMS). The plugin automates translation workflows, assignments, and publication. Once the translation is completed in the TMS, the plugin automatically rebuilds the multilingual version of the asset inside of WordPress.

Customer Results

Lingotek serves WordPress customers in a wide range of industries, including consumer goods, digital agencies, digital intelligence, landscape design and architecture, real estate, and technology, including the world leader in processor technology.

Our customers have experienced many benefits when using the Lingotek - Inside WordPress Plugin. They include more control and visibility, established workflows, streamlined communication, greater departmental efficiency, faster translation, and increased opportunities for global expansion.

"Working with Lingotek gave us the opportunity to have full access and control of the translation process. In the past, we had no visibility….We can log in to the TMS and see where a project is with the translators… I can actually see the percentage of where they are with a project. That’s a huge streamlining of communication."
--Kimberly Clifton, Director of Sales Operations and Marketing, LightPath Technologies
