Mango Tree Family Health Team (Guelph & Kitchener Ontario) requested a multi-lingual site from us and with the use of the WordPress Multilingual Plugin developed by ICanLocalize & OnTheGoSystems Inc., we were able to provide them with a simple and effective solution.
While a lot of multi-lingual plugins do exist in the plugin repository on WordPress.org, none of them were able to match the ease of use and quality offered by the WPML ‘for-pay’ plugin. The manner with which it integrates into WordPress and auto-translates a slew of sections, in combination with the simple process for adding translations for pages and posts, is what really sets this plugin apart from the others.
An additional service offered but that has not yet been indulged in by our clients is the translation services offered by parent company, ICanLocalize. Click here to learn more…
In addition to the WPML plugin, we use the usual array of plugins that help users manage WordPress as a CMS. We once again built the site using Ian D. Stewart’s Thematic Framework by creating a custom child theme for Mango Tree FHT.
