    Thorsten Frommen: One Website, All the Languages

    WordCamp Geneva 2016Speaker: Thorsten Frommen

    April 2, 2017 — WordPress powers more than every fourth of all websites in the world, in one or more of the 6,500+ world languages. WordPress itself does not allow for multilingual content, though, so that’s where plugins come in handy. One of these is MultilingualPress: THE multisite-based free open source plugin for multilingual websites.

    In this talk, Thorsten provides a short introduction to both MultilingualPress and WordPress multisite. By means of several user stories, he then explains how to set up your multilingual WordPress website with MultilingualPress.
