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.

With Weglot, your whole WooCommerce store is automatically translated in minutes. 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.
