Weglot Companion WordPress Plugin

1.3.1 2022-08-30 22:32 UTC

This package is auto-updated.

Last update: 2022-08-30 22:32:43 UTC


Provides additional functionality for the Weglot Translate Plugin.

This plugin makes available the following features:

  1. Translation caching using object caching.
  2. Better translate filters/interfaces for developer use to translate content manually that Weglot is unable to translate.

Manually translate content that Weglot misses, like HTML returned from an Ajax request.

The Weglot plugin must be installed and activated for this to work, otherwise it will just silently return the original content.

Translate an HTML string

$translated = apply_filters( \Tribe\Weglot\Translate\Translate_Subscriber::FILTER, '<p>Some kind of HTML content</p>' );

Translate an array of HTML strings

$translated = apply_filters( \Tribe\Weglot\Translate\Translate_Subscriber::FILTER, [
    '<li>some content</li>',
    '<li>some more content</li>'
    // etc...
] );

Installing this plugin


If you're using our SquareOne Framework with Tribe Libs v3.4+ you can likely just create a release and composer require the plugin. However, if this results in composer conflicts that can't be resolved, use the private composer method below.

composer require moderntribe/weglot-companion

Private Composer Installer

Every published release automatically creates a which is a fully built and vendor scoped WordPress plugin, about a minute after the release is published. To manually install, visit a release and download and extract the zip in your WordPress plugins folder.

However, the best way to include the release zip is by using the fantastic ffraenz/private-composer-installer plugin.

Add a custom repository to your project's repository key in composer.json:

  "repositories": [
      "type": "package",
      "package": {
        "name": "moderntribe/weglot-companion",
        "version": "1.0.0",
        "type": "wordpress-plugin",
        "dist": {
          "type": "zip",
          "url": "{%VERSION}/"
        "require": {
          "ffraenz/private-composer-installer": "^5.0"

NOTE: Simply update the version above and run composer update to upgrade the plugin in the future.

Then, add the plugin definition to the require section:

  "require": {
    "moderntribe/weglot-companion": "*",

Tell composer where to put your WordPress plugins/themes via the extra section.

NOTE: Adjust the paths based on your project.

  "extra": {
    "wordpress-install-dir": "wp",
    "installer-paths": {
      "wp-content/mu-plugins/{$name}": [
      "wp-content/plugins/{$name}": [
      "wp-content/themes/{$name}": [

You may have to allow this plugin in your config as well:

    "allow-plugins": {
      "composer/installers": true,
      "ffraenz/private-composer-installer": true,

Finally, install the plugin:

composer update
