Multisite Language Switcher

Descripción

A simple, powerful, and user-friendly plugin that adds multilingual support to your WordPress multisite installation, whether using multiple subdomains or folders. Multisite Language Switcher allows you to effortlessly manage translations for posts, pages, custom post types, categories, tags, and custom taxonomies.

The plugin uses flag icons from FamFamFam. Thanks to Mark James for his great work. In addition, I would like to thank Jürgen Mayer for creating the plugin’s banner.

Please, don’t forget to rate this plugin! 🙂

  • Download the plugin and uncompress it with your preferred unzip programme and copy the entire directory in the plugin directory of your WordPress blog (/wp-content/plugins)
  • Activate the plugin in your plugin administration page (by the network administrator on all the blogs or by the blog administrator for each particular blog).
  • You need to activate the plugin once in each blog, by setting the configuration in Settings -> Multisite Language Switcher

Now you can:

  • Connect your translated pages and posts in Posts -> Edit or Page -> Edit
  • Connect your translated categories and tags in Posts -> Categories or Post -> Tags
  • connect your Custom Post Types and Custom Taxonomies across languages
  • use the widget, the Gutenberg block, the shortcode [sc_msls] and/or a content_filter which displays a hint to the user if a translation is available
  • you can find also a shortcode for the widget [sc_msls_widget]
  • optionally you can place the code <?php if ( function_exists( 'the_msls' ) ) the_msls(); ?> directly in your theme files

FAQ

I have no language options in the General settings.

You might read first WordPress in your language.

But I’d like the interface to stay in English.

You can choose the language of the dashboard in the settings of your user profile.

Do I need a multisite?

It’s up to you – of course. But yes, if you want to use the Multisite Language Switcher.

How can I automatically redirect users based on the browser language?

The Multisite Language Switcher does not redirect the users automatically. I’m not sure if the plugin should do that. You might check out this jQuery plugin or this approach with a theme
if you need such functionality.

How can I add the Multisite Language Switcher to the nav menu of my blog?

Please check the add-on MslsMenu out.

I want to have the languages in an HTML select. How can I do that?

Please check the add-on MslsSelect out.

I don’t want to upload the same media files for every site. What can I do?

You could try the plugin Network Shared Media. It adds a new tab to the “Add Media” window, allowing you to access the media files on the other sites in your multisite.

Can I call a function to get the language of the page the user is viewing?

Yes, you should use the WordPress API function get_locale() but you could also use code like that

use lloc\Msls\MslsBlogCollection;

$blog     = MslsBlogCollection::instance()->get_current_blog();
$language = $blog->get_language();

How can I move from WPML to MSLS?

There is a plugin which comes in handy here.

There is a learning curve and i think someone should make a tutorial how to implement the language switcher and menu and how to work with it. But after all a great plugin.

This is a fantastic plugin: it does exactly what promises to do, it’s not bloated with extra features and it’s been around for a long time. I can’t thank the plugin author enough for developing this plugin, maintaining it for years and having the patience to deal with occasional 1-star reviews from people who can’t be bothered to read the docs.

I’m not keen to write reviews, but in this case I was so overwhelmed of this plugin’s simple features and ease of use that I had to. This is by far THE easiest multisite multilanguage plugin I ever tried. Over the years I tested several multilingual approachs (plugins for standalone WP sites, multisite “premium” plugins, country domains, etc.). But this here exceeds all my expectactions for its simplicity. Multilanguage should not be an option in WordPress, but part of the core, out of the box. This plugin deserves a 10 of 10. Two thumbs way up! Thank you for this peace of art.

I am very happy with the plugin’s operation – it is extremely easy to use and does not cause any problems.Works with WordPress Multisite great! However, there is a feature missing from the plugin that has already been popping up on the web, namely support for reciprocal hreflang (return tag: which is missing Missing x-default). When I audit any page with this plugin, I get “Missing reciprocal hreflang (no return-tag)”, you can find info at Ahrefs site “”Missing reciprocal hreflang (no return-tag)” error in Site Audit” I will be very grateful if this functionality is added :)As I can see this needs to add one line of code 🙂 Greeting from PolandPaweł
