I've used a few other translation plugins and this was far easier to set up and use. I'm really pleased. Plus I had a problem early on and the response was swift, efficient and solved the problem. It doesn't always happen that way with free plugins so I was really impressed. Great work.

I've been looking for a good plugin for my multilanguage store very long. And "Falang multilanguage for WordPress" is my choice! It definitely should be number one around translation plugins! Very easy possibilities to translate products, categories, tags, menus and a lot of other things! I had a few questions in some "not standard" situations - and the support is fantastic! I received answers for all my questions very quickly and with detailed instructions what should I do! Thanks a lot, guys! I think every "native" WordPress and WooCommerce things are translatable now. And questions appear only when I want to translate something from other external plugin - for example I tried to translate product labels (like "new", "sale" etc), but I didn't manage to do that. Actually this is a very small question, but pluging is actively develop and I hope extra possibilities will appeared to translate even external things from other plugins. 5 stars!

This plugin is actively developed, is easy to use and has good support. The latest update at the time of writing was just five days ago, this is a pretty good and healthy sign for a plugin, especially one that is free of charge. It is feature rich and, once you get the hang of it, easy to use. I used Polylang earlier and this has a somewhat different workflow, but once you get through that, it is fine. More importantly, the developer is very responsive, which is a huge plus in my book. No software is perfect, so if there's active support for it, it gives me confidense that there's a future for it. Five stars.

Luckily I found Falang a few days ago! Finally a free plugin with entity/field translation! After all, you don't want to fill your WordPress with thousands of pages with names that you don't understand yourself ;-). It's amazing that there are still translation tools out there that use the old page translation! I haven't worked with Falang much, but everything seems to be working very well. You can even prevent the translation from having its own link with a name, great! It would be even better if simply the node# were displayed, because after all the page has a title. And a language switcher with box and pulldown would be great! Soon I will know how it works with the links to another page. Will Falang automatically change the link address in the translation and insert the abbreviation for the language if the linked page has already been translated? I let myself be surprised :-). Great work, thank you very much and please always offer a free version, because not everyone has enough money to pay for a plugin, unfortunately! greetings LinuC

I had some problems with getting to understand how it works, but when I did, it is a very easy way to translate your site. Basically, you only need to translate the text, the pages and links will be generated for you when you have published everything. Need to keep an eye on the formatting, a bit tricky this. In general, I like this plugin a lot. Great work Stephane

If you are looking for a straightforward translation plugin you can stop looking and use this. This is THE ONE you are looking for. I was looking for a easy to use plugin to translate my site into 3 languages. Somehow I stumbled upon this and so far have been very happy with it. I have tried almost all of the mainstream translation plugins TranslatePress, Polylang, Locotranslate etc and this is the best of all. This plugin will translate almost anything you want - strings, posts, options, terms. Even though it takes some time getting used to, and the UX can be improved a little, this does absolutely everything you want it to do. Had a couple bugs and emailed Stéphane about it and was fixed promptly! Great support. Please support this plugin! Looking forward to future updates. Keep up the great work! - A satisfied user
