I purchased your upgrade and wanting to know if you can

Hello,

I purchased your upgrade and wanting to know if you can help point me in the right direction. I have one domain name and want my site to be seen by other languages around the world. For example if someone types in French on Google.fr in Francois I want my site to show up and seen in French.

I need to be able to guide my developer on how to do this can you offer a suggestion of the best plugin out there to add to my site on http://www.WPMUDEV.org or any ideas do u offer this plugin or script whatever it is ?

Please see below for exactly what I am looking for thanks :slight_smile:

1. I don’t want extra domains

2. I want to increase reach and decrease costs

3. Getting your message to your site visitor in the most convenient way is the main reason to have a multi language site, why not remove that need to click over to their desired language with an automatic browser detection.

so instead of having.fr or .de or.it u have one with language redirect based on IP

and each language is its own page with 5 advertising slots for the country and language.

    Hi @neil

    Hope you are doing good today :slight_smile:

    To detect visitors browser language and serve them content in that language is an option in WPML plugin that you can use. When its enabled it will automatically detect and redirect to that language page.

    https://wpml.org/documentation/getting-started-guide/language-setup/automatic-redirect-based-on-browser-language/

    Another method is using Google translate widget. This will not redirect to a different page though but will translate the page instantly. With help of this snippet you can make detect browser language and translate the page automatically.

    Hi Sajid,

    SOunds like you offer the same link I doscovered from this company. I already bought your plugin so i will definitely want to use yours if it offers what I need.

    Can you please comform YES to use your WPML PLugin as it will what I need it do for me and my advertising goals as mentioned below:

    for example: and each language is it’s own page with 5 advertising slots for the country and language only visible to that country and language.

    I can have 5 advertising slots for the English USA version only visible on that public facing website language version.

    I can have 5 advertising slots for the FRENCH version only visible on that public facing website language version.

    This should really help understand more –

    Hi @neil

    Hope you are doing good today :slight_smile:

    First of all I want to clear that WPML is not our plugin. Also we don’t have translation plugin in our collection.

    It will handle automatic redirection to specific language site (if exists) by default for you.

    From:

    so instead of having.fr or .de or.ru u have one with language redirect based on ip

    Note: WPML uses subdomain or subdirectory setup to display content in each language. For example for content in English it will add domina.com/en or en.domain.ocm/ depending on your settings.

    and each language is a own page with 5 advertising slots for the country and language-

    For advertising slots do you using widget ? If yes then you can look for widget translation of WPML. I am not certainly sure they offer swapping widgets according to the language being viewed. You can ask them first if they offer such feature.

    However your developer can code it for you by getting current language code from the constant ‘ICL_LANGUAGE_CODE’ and swap widgets, code whatever approach you are using with if else or switch statements.

    Please see below support ticket for more information about getting current language code in WPML.

    Hope that helps :slight_smile:
