But I found Global Translator a lot easier, feature rich and at 37KB, it’s the smallest in the lot. Global Translator is a free and open source WordPress Plugin that dynamically translate your blog in the following thirteen different languages:
English, French, Italian, German, Portuguese, Spanish, Japanese, Korean, Chinese, Arabic, Russian, Greek, Dutch.
Note: The number of available translations will depend on your blog language and the translation engine you will chose to use.
The most powerful features which Global Translator provides are:
- Double Translation Engine System: it has the ability to provide the translations by using both Google Translation Engine [or here] and Babel Fish [or here]
- Search Engine Optimized: it uses the permalinks by adding the language code at the beginning of all your URI. For example the english version on www.domain.com/mycategory/mypost will be automatically transformed in www.domain.com/en/mycategory/mypost
- Fast Caching System: a built-in cache is provided in order to reduce the online connections to the translation engines
- Fully configurable layout: you can easily customize the appearance of the translation bar by choosing between a TABLE or DIV layout for the flags bar and by selecting the number of translations to make available to your visitors
