WordPress Toronto Presents: Weglot - Automated Translation for Public Sector Websites

  • Lokaal 142 Westmount Avenue Toronto, ON, M6E 1B2 Canada (map)

Do you work at a government or not for profit organization? Do you publish online content in 2 or more languages?

Do you need translations for multiple content management systems including simple HTML websites?

Let's face it. For many organizations, the translation process is overwhelming, expensive and difficult to maintain.

Weglot ( may be the answer. Weglot has developed a WordPress plugin that features a five minute install, activation and initial configuration. Then Weglot translates your copy automatically, on the fly, and creates a best-effort translation using commercial cloud-based translation services.

If a user chooses French on the website, then the page is translated automatically. There's no translated copy to worry about. There's no practical limit to the number of languages. And it is pay-as-you-go based on the number of words your visitors have translated.

Weglot automatically translates your website content in the cloud, and features an easy workflow to manage all translations in as many as 100+ languages. You must see this innovative solution and how it stacks up against the current competition.
