Gutenberg Translation Plugin

Translate Gutenberg Blocks within minutes.

WordPress logo

With the arrival of WordPress 5.0, came the much anticipated Gutenberg editor. The addition of this editor has had a big impact on the whole WordPress publishing experience, helping to modernize the platform and create a more professional tool based on modern technology. 

The biggest change with Gutenberg has been the addition of ‘content blocks’. Instead of having a single text block interspersed with other media, paragraphs, headings, images etc, all content parts are now handled as individual blocks, complete with their own options and settings.

But, what impact does this have on its compatibility with Weglot? None whatsoever! Weglot works by translating all the content within your pages – which isn’t dependent on how you’ve built those pages. 

Although Gutenberg has brought new changes to WordPress, the way it works with Weglot is completely unaffected. Weglot continues to be compatible with all WordPress themes and plugins – so, there’s no need to worry! 

Weglot remains the highest rated translation plugin on the WordPress Directory and has a number of features that make it stand out. You’ll get access to our user-friendly dashboard where you can manage and customize your translations, use our in context editor tool and invite team members to your project.
