README

Minimalistic content translation in WordPress. The plugin handles translations for posts, postmeta, options, siteoptions (multisite) and usermeta.

While the plugin also handles comments and commentmeta they are not translated. Comments are mapped to a specific language (the langauge active when posting the comment) and will be displayed for that specific language. There's also an option to make languages inherit comments from other languages. Forinstance the nordic languages is very similar, so we want to load Danish and Norwegian comments along with the Swedish comments.

Translations

The GUI is is available in:

  • English
  • Swedish
  • Norwegian

REDIS & Memcached

If you are using redis or memcached, you want to define a hash-key depending on selected language. The hash key cannot be changed at runtime after it has been set (defined as constant). Add this to your configuration:

if (isset($_COOKIE['wp_content_translator_language']) && !empty($_COOKIE['wp_content_translator_language'])) {
    define('WP_CACHE_KEY_SALT', NONCE_KEY.$_COOKIE['wp_content_translator_language']);
} else {
    define('WP_CACHE_KEY_SALT', NONCE_KEY);
}

Language selector

You can easily use the default language selector (a basic html <select>element) or create a language selector with custom markup.

Use the wp_content_translator_language_selector() function to display a language selector. If you want to use the default selector just run the function without any paramters. If you want to create a custom selector there's an option to pass markup for the wrapper and the "language rows".

Available template tags to use in the markup:

Wrapper:

  • string languages (displays the language rows)

Language row:

  • string code (sv_SE)
  • string name (Swedish)
  • string nativeName (Svenska)
  • string url (//domain.tld/?lang=sv_SE)
  • string isCurrent ("is-current" if it's the current language, otherwise empty string)
wp_content_translator_language_selector(
    $wrapper = '<ul>{{ languages }}</ul>',
    $element = '<li><a href="{{ url }}" class="{{ isCurrent }}">{{ name }}</a></li>'
)

Configurations

Each translation component has it's own configuration filter which can be used to change it's configuration.

function my_custom_config($config) {
    $config['key'] = 'my value';
    return $config;
}
add_filter('wp-content-translator/configuration/{{component}}', 'my_custom_config');
