Why should you have a multilingual website?

It’s easy to forget all about other languages when setting up your online business! With the resources needed to put together a new website, multilingual capabilities are very commonly ignored, as the process of getting multiple translations can get complicated and expensive. But ignoring the importance of being multilingual can be a costly mistake: unlocking the possibility for visitors to read and interact in their own language means you’ll be significantly widening your reach, increasing your chances of business success!

This is why it’s important to think of ways to offer translations in more languages: multilingual websites naturally rank in more countries and attract more potential customers. Your visitors will also feel like you are significantly more localized by speaking to them in a language they easily understand!

But how about the cost and headache to set up a proper multilingual website offering high quality translations? This is where Weglot can make it easy: with a simple way to unlock multilingual capabilities swiftly, your website can go from targeted towards a single language to multilingual in an easy, affordable manner!

I tried to add a new language, but when I clicked on the save button, it didn’t work. The entire WordPress dashboard froze, and I’ve tried to install and reinstall the plugin several times. I am using the latest version of WordPress.

La opción gratuita es para nada para muy pocas palabras y hablo de una web con escasísima información. Rápidamente te llevan a una opción de pago donde además te dejan preseleccionado una opción desorbitada para los despistados que piquen, de todas maneras, las otras opciones son caras hablando además de una traducción automática que deja que desear. Hay mejores opciones en el mercado, pérdida de tiempo.
