Preferred Languages


Dank den Sprachpaketen ist es so einfach wie noch nie die Website-Sprache zu ändern. Allerdings ist eine Sprache oft nicht genug. Wenn WordPress keine Übersetzung für die Sprache findet, werden Texte in englisch angegeben. Das führt unweigerlich zu einem schlechten Benutzererlebnis.

Dieses Feature-Projekt hat sich zum Ziel gesetzt dies zu ändern, indem Benutzer mehrere Sprachen auswählen können. Auf diese Weise kann WordPress die Sprachen in der gewünschten Reihenfolge laden, je nachdem welche Sprachen verfügbar sind.

Bitte helfen Sie uns, dieses Plugin zu testen und lassen Sie uns wissen, wenn etwas nicht funktioniert, wie es sollte.


Die aktive Weiterentwicklung findet statt auf GitHub.

I honestly think that this should be a core feature of WP. The only thing wrong I notice is that when you are looking at the front end... The language of the admin bar changes into the site language but that's the only issue I have with this plugin at the time of writing. For the rest, it's a dream plugin.

a very cool plugin. this is a truely great plugin, You can use it for many purposes. It works great right out of the box, but is very easy to customize to suit your needs. my current use-case: i use this plugin to power up my page - which has visitors from several european Countries. I’m using this plugin to manage a small job-site: And i have to say: I love this plugin. And if it comes to support: it is so awesome to see that all is documented so well and good: You can do so much with this plugin: if you need to customize it towards your special use-case: just look at the documentation (and again have a look at the docs) Read those instructions – they are written so well, people. There’s a lot of detail there and alltogehter i have to say: it’s super well documented! Amazing job: i love this plugin, from me 5 stars - (i would give even more if it would be possible) keep up this awesome and outstanding job - it rocks!!!

I think this should be in Core for websites with several possible languages. I like it very much! Specially I appreciate that each user can also choose languages from the selected languages. (I am developing a translation plugin for my own needs to use Google Translate to translate posts/pages and complement it.)

An indispensable plugin for sites that use a language with formal/non-formal variant. This should become a WordPress core functionality!

Sometimes you stumble across plugins and wonder: why is this stuff not in core? I think because languages which have both informal and formal speech are a minority. Either way, this plugin saved my day. Thanks!
