How to translate widgets and improve your multilingual website

Looking to make your website more multilingual? Translating widgets is a key step! This guide provides a quick and easy way to do it using Dilingual.


If you're looking to make your website more multilingual, one key step is to translate your widgets. This can help improve the user experience for visitors who speak different languages, and it can also help search engines index your site more effectively.

In this blog post, we will provide a step-by-step guide to translating widgets on your website.

What are widgets, and why should you translate them?

Widgets are small pieces of code that can be inserted into a web page. They typically provide some functionality or display content from another source. For example, a weather widget might show the current temperature and forecast for a specific location.

WordPress widgets are generally created by themes or plugins and can be added to any WordPress site. Code widgets, on the other hand, need to be manually added to a website's HTML code.

While all types of widgets can be useful for visitors, translating them is especially important for multilingual websites. This is because widgets often include text that needs to be translated to make sense for users who speak different languages.

Additionally, translating widgets can help search engines index your website more effectively since they will be able to understand the content better.
