Because WordPress offers an unparalleled combination of simple to use and easy to maintain, while still offering fully rich and customizable multi-media experiences.

Lingotek & WordPress

First introduced in July, 2015, the Lingotek WordPress connector works in conjunction with the Polylang plugin, which provides the plumbing to support a multi-lingual site. You simply create your WordPress content – including posts, pages, media, categories, post tags, menus, widgets, … – and with a click of a button send it off to be translated, and when that is complete your translated content is returned – ready to be served up. It couldn’t be simpler. And yet, it is backed by the most flexible, and powerful, TMS platform. Simple to execute within WordPress, but leveraging all of your linguistic assets and content-specific workflows behind the scenes.

How our WordPress Connector works

Lingotek has taken advantage of the multilingual architecture of Polylang to provide the most robust localization experience available! Truly, a click of a button can initiate the localization process for your content; and when that is complete, the translated content is returned automatically — ready to be served up. Or, if you prefer, simply set it up so you don’t even have to click that button and have newly created or updated content automatically localized when saved in WordPress. And, while we simplify and automate the experience of localization in WordPress for content creators, it is all still backed by the most powerful and scalable workflows in our enterprise Translation Management System (TMS). So, it can be simple for content creators and still provide the full range of robust and customizable capabilities of an enterprise TMS for your localization managers.
Content Creators

Your job is to focus on creating the content in WordPress. When it comes time to translate, don’t spend time exporting, zipping, and sending content to the localization team. Let our WordPress Connector do it for you.
You simply submit content to the Lingotek TMS inside WordPress, then track the translation progress in real-time. When translations complete the localized content is routed back into WordPress automatically.

Localization Managers

Once the content is sent to the Lingotek TMS, workflows automate everything from quotes, due dates, and linguist assignments. At your fingertips, you have access to the most powerful, yet flexible TMS on the planet.
