    Don’t know about others, but I had my experience with Bing translator in past… it made the serious content look funny after translation.

    I have tested some of them for a website of mine.

    Onestly I think the best free solution is Polylang as it is the only one who very little affects the database in case you choose to apply for more than a language with no need of a second WP installation under a subfolder (eg: creating a /en subfolder via FTP in your site directory).

    It is essential to consider using a professional translator, not machine translation, to attract and appeal to your target audience.
    Machine translation often gives funny results, less often ridiculous translations. Examples abound on the web.

    Thanks Mark for this extensive article. Too bad you could not try us (ConveyThis) before writing it. We built a new and innovative multilingual plugin: very user-centric, easy to use and set-up, while keeping it fully functional. It’s kind of a hybrid solution, automatically detecting content and translating it, while allowing you to edit/replace it if you want to improve translations. I hope you’ll be able to try it soon ☺ https://wordpress.org/plugins/conveythis-translate/ Best
