Bogo is a straight-forward multilingual plugin for WordPress.

The core of WordPress itself has the built-in localization capability so you can use the dashboard and theme in one language other than English. Bogo expands this capability to let you easily build a multilingual blog on a single WordPress install.

Here are some technical details for those interested. Bogo plugin assigns one language per post. It plays nice with WordPress – Bogo does not create any additional custom table on your database, unlike some other plugins in this category. This design makes Bogo a solid, reliable and conflict-free multilingual plugin.

Getting started with Bogo

  1. Install language packs

    First, install language packs for languages you use on the site. You can view and install language packs in the Language Packs screen (Languages > Language Packs).

  2. Select your language for admin screen

    Bogo lets each logged-in user select a language for their admin screen UI. Select a language from the menu on the Toolbar, or from the menu in the Profile screen (Users > Your Profile) if the Toolbar is invisible.

  3. Translate your posts and pages

    To create a translation post, go to the editor screen for the original post and find the Language box. Bogo does only make a copy of the post; translating the copied post is your task.

  4. Add language switcher widgets

    It would be useful for site visitors if you have a language switcher on your site. Bogo provides the Language Switcher widget in the Widgets screen (Appearance > Widgets).

    You can also use the [bogo] shortcode to put a language switcher inside a post content. If you want to use this shortcode in your theme’s template files, embed the following code into the template:

    <?php echo do_shortcode( '[bogo]' ); ?>

Privacy notices

With the default configuration, this plugin, in itself, does not:

  • track users by stealth;
  • write any user personal data to the database;
  • send any data to external servers;
  • use cookies.

Capturi ecran

dear team, thank you so much for making this plugin. since a long time, I am looking for a free yet powerful language switcher plugin for my WordPress site. I have tried so many plugins, either they are not powerful or they are very high in the budget. recently, I am researching about the developer of "contact form 7" plugin. I realised they have made one more plugin called "BOGO", and it is related to multi-language. I tried "BOGO" in my wp site and it was great. I really like that we can add language switcher block in the footer as a widget. my question is, can we add this language switcher block/button in the header menu or anywhere near the top of the website. so that visitor can know that this site is also available in another language.

A light weight multilingual plugin that does one thing only: Provide you a means to create a WordPress site in multiple languages. You are yourself responsible to provide the translations, which is a good thing. It also works perfectly with Asgaros Forum. Thank you for supplying Bogo!
