ConveyThis Translate is a WordPress plugin that lets you translate the content on your website into over 100 languages.
The plugin works with all WordPress plugins and themes and has been optimised for search engines. One of its selling points is that it does not redirect users to another page using an external service. The translation is completed on the page itself.
Let’s take a closer look at what this plugin can do.
Translating Your Content
I took ConveyThis Translate for a spin in my WordPress test area.
The first thing you need to do is register on the main ConveyThis website in order to acquire an API key. Then you can set your source language (e.g. English) and then list the languages you want to make available to users (Scottish was an option!!!).
A list of your translated pages can be viewed from your ConveyThis account area.
Users are shown a flag and language name down the bottom right-hand side of the page. You can move this to the top if you wish. You can also change the flag and text style and change the indenting from the top or bottom of the page.
Hreflang tags are added to all pages by default. All languages have flags associated with them according to ISO standards; but this too can be changed.
Visitors can change to a different language at any time via the language selection box.
The great thing about this plugin is that it does not just translate your content, it also translates other text on your website. This includes navigation links, widget titles, headers, footers, sidebars, and more.
Visitors can change to another language at any time. They just need to select the language they want from the language box again.
ConveyThis Translate is free to download, however premium plans are available that increase your allowance.
The free plan is quite generous. It lets you translate on language and gives you 5,000 translated words and 5,000 monthly page views. The more expensive plans increase this allowance, with the pro plan unlocking all languages for $49 per month.
All ConveyThis users, including those who use the free plan, receive dedicated support. The account area also tracks all of your translated pages and provides analytics on them.
This is quite unique.
Most WordPress plugins that have been released under a freemium model restrict the free plan and cheaper plans. Instead, what ConveyThis has done is make sure every user gets the same features. The only difference in the plans is how many languages, translated words, and page views, are allocated to you.
Making your website translateable could attract many more international users to you. It should help your search engine presence too.
ConveyThis helps you do that.
With just a few options in the settings area for customising the language box, the plugin is not the most feature rich translation solution; but that is actually one of its strengths. All you have to do is activate the plugin, sign up for an API key, and select the languages you want to make available.
I encourage you to download the plugin from WordPress.org and give it a try.
