  • Easy to use: Translate Posts, Pages, Menus, Categories from the plugin or linked from the WP interface
  • Translate Posts and Terms permalinks
  • Translate additional plugins like WooCommerce, Yoast SEO, etc.
  • You can use Azure,Yandex,Lingvanex to help you with the translation (Google and DeepPL services may be included in later versions)
  • Displays the default language if the content is not yet translated
  • The Language Switcher widget is configurable to display flags and/or language names
  • Language Switcher can be put in Menu, Header, Footer, Sidebars
  • Image captions, alt text and other media text translation without duplicating the media files
  • Language Code directly in the URL
  • No extra database tables created, no content duplication
  • Very good website speed performance (low impact)
  • Contains translations for IT, FR, DE, ES, NL
  • Falang is not meant for WordPress multisite installations!

Falang’s goal is to let you translate everything on your page

  • Taxonomies
  • Menu items
  • Theme and plugin strings
  • Custom fields
  • Page builder content
  • Widgets
  • Shortcode outputs
  • URL slugs
  • WooCommerce products
  • Page title and description
  • Image alt text and captions

Known issues

  • Elementor preview needs to have “Show slug for main language” disabled in Falang Settings
  • When a post/page is restricted to one language, the Blog posts
    overview hides the post in the other languages. But in the single post
    view on the frontend you can still choose the other language(s) through the language switcher, resulting in a 404. This will be fixed in the
    next version.


  • The Post Listing translation panel
  • The Post translation panel
  • The Language Listing panel


  1. Upload the entire Falang folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory or install from WP Plugins
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Add languages
  4. Set the default language (main language of your site)
  5. Add the Language Switcher to your site
  6. Translate your post / pages / menus etc. to the other languages


  • Is Falang Translate free?
    Yes, but without on-site support.

  • Where to find help?
    First time users should read the Falang – Documentation, which explains the basics (with screenshots – in English).

My client needed multilingual Woocommerce eshop with three languages. I have tried several plugins but Falang seems to be the best option. Also the support was very quick and solved all my issues. I have already used Falang with Joomla! without any trouble.

The plugin is great but I installed for test with "Falang for Elementor Lite" couse my site uses elementor and I wanted to test Polylang too. When I uninstalled the plugin with their data, all the elementor part of the site has gone from all pages, even the models, I tryed to restore previous versions or activate elementor on the pages again but nothing works. I have luck to made a backup before. The plugin is good constructed and i think that could be one of the bests, the free elementor plugin not covers all but could be use and my case is not the most common, but be aware of it.

So far I'm very satisfied what this plugin can do. It's smart, intuitive and works without issues. It's new, but IMHO one of the best options for multilingual sites in 2020.

I'm still in the process of setting Falang up and translating content for 4 languages,but really happy so far: menus, articles, pages and woocommerce products translation work out of the box. Just one sad note: I copy paste already translated (gutenberg-based) text from my old website, and pasting it in Falang's translation interface (classic editor) looses some layout (namely the paragraphs). The rest is copied just fine (images, links, iframes, inline styles...) [edit: great support from Stéphane, below, explained workaround] Thank you Stephane (and contributors) for the great job !
