    You left out stella! http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/stella-free/

    I enjoy Stella because it’s simplicity, though you will need the pro version to localize your theme. I also use WPML as it covers basically everything, the only downside of WMPL is that it clutters the admin interface tremendously. It’s quite ‘boombastic’ so to say. Q-Translate I’ve used, but quickly abandoned.

    Having a lot of translated content is nice, but users might need the interface in their language as well. We wrote a plugin for that and share it for free via the public repository. Maybe you want to add that one to the list as well: http://wordpress.org/plugins/wcm-user-language-switcher/

    Media library of languages: The plugin creates a global library for languages for all blogs and sites powered by WordPress.

    Would it be possible for the post to be updated regarding the no longer existent feature of a shared media library in Multilingual Press? We still have customers having read this article purchasing a pro license and being disappointed as the feature has been removed. (Not indicating the disappointment is the article’s fault, of course.)

    Hi. I think WPML is the best multilingual plugin for WordPress (with great support) and Polylang the best free plugin. I didn´t know about Stella plugin but it looks like very easy to use. I have to check it.

    Thanks for the article!!

    Thanks for the overview!
    I’m looking for a plugin to implement a multilingual wordpress install.
    Currently I have 3 different installations for my website and it is really a pain in the neck!!!
    Based on your article I’m going to give a try to qtranslate, hope for the best.
    If it doesn’t work I’ll move to WPML

    Hi I’m new in wp translation, I already installed Polylang but how can I translate my site to other language or I need to do it manually creating new posts/pages?

    Hi, I’m interested in creating a website for my business that will be available for viewing in two languages. (Basically, it will have two flags in the upper right corner. The default version will be in English but by clicking on the other flag the visitor will switch all the pages to that other language). Can this feature be implemented in any theme or only specific ones? I noticed some themes (Responsive, Hathor, etc.) are “translation ready” but I’m not quite sure if that is what I am talking about here. How difficult is it to set up a website in two languages? Would I need to create (or recreate) the same pages (and all the content) in the two languages or is there a way to do it a bit easier and quicker? Thanks for any input you may have on this subject.

    Thank Jean for your useful article!
    I think to buy WPML for my web site http://www.studiogiovanelli.org, but I don’t know if this plugin works also in the home page. For example Qtranslate X uses the sidebar, and if in the home page there osn’t any sidebar you can’t manage the languages. Please, which plugin do you suggest in order to allow me to mangae also the home page without sidebar?
    Thank you, Francesco

      You can use Polylang Free version with Say what? pro. I Say what? pro is compatible with polylang and can handle any translation for any language.

    You said MultilingualPress works on single wordpress sites but it only works on multi-sites. You might correct that.

    Thank you for this article!

    For my wordrpress website, I need a plugin than will allow users to switch from one language to another (content being already translated and submitted my me, of course).

    So, I don’t need translation, but an language switch option. What plugin is easiest and best for that purpose?

    Thank you in advance!

    Hello Jean, thanks for your article. I know it is now 3 years old, but Transposh hasn’t been updated for years. Maybe you could add a small notice for users. I think it is crucial to build a multilingual site on a maintained plugin solution.
