When you start selling internationally, it’s crucial that all your products, variations, categories, fields and attributes are translated so you can give the best possible service to your new customers. After all, 90% of customers won’t purchase unless it’s in their native language!
Building an online store is a daunting task – but when you use WordPress the task is made much simpler with the WooCommerce plugin.
But, WordPress isn’t multilingual by default. There are a number of translation plugins to choose from, however, none of them are as accurate as Weglot (or as easy to implement – no code and no developers needed!).
As the highest rated translation plugin on the WordPress Directory, Weglot has a number of features that make it stand out.

Ready to start selling internationally? Let’s get started.
Your Weglot account is where all your translations will be stored, and where you’ll be able to manage them. Simply create a Weglot account here.
Go to your admin dashboard on WordPress. On your side menu, click on “Plugins” > “Add New.” In the search bar that appears, search for “Weglot.”
Once you’ve found us, go ahead and click “Install Now.”
When it’s been installed, click “Activate”.
Once you’ve installed and activated the plugin properly, you should have a new “Weglot” tab on the sidebar menu of your admin dashboard.
Click on it to finalize your configuration.
Here, you’ll be able to enter the unique API key—available on your Weglot account dashboard.
Once you’ve done that, you’ll have the option to select the original language of your WordPress site—the one you created the site in—then, of course, the language(s) into which you’d like to translate your site.
Click “Save Changes” when you’re all done.
Now, you can customize your translation options and change the style and position of your language-switch button—all within the Weglot tab on your WordPress admin dashboard.
You can also view and edit all of your translations from your Weglot dashboard, under the “Translations” tab. For more info on how to manually edit and manage your translations via your Weglot account, check out our support article on the subject here.
