How to translate Kleo theme with Weglot plugin

Translating your WordPress website has never been easier thanks to multilingual plugin Weglot. Add more than 100 languages to your WordPress website in just a couple of clicks – with the added bonus of automated translation, visual translations editing and multilingual SEO.

Let’s take a closer look at Weglot and how you can translate our popular Kleo theme in a matter of minutes. 

About Weglot

Weglot is praised for its ease of use and one of the many reasons why WordPress users no longer need to fear going multilingual. 

With more than 50,000 active installs and over 1,000 5 star reviews, the Weglot multilingual plugin allows you to have a fully translated website up and running in literally minutes, without the need for code. 

Weglot automatically detects, translates and displays the content of your website under language subdirectories – taking care of both the translation part and removing the pain of having to create multisites. 

With a first layer of automatic translation, Weglot allows you to take control of your translation workflow with visual editing, the functionality to add teammates to your translation project, or even the option to order professional translators directly through the Weglot dashboard to fine-tune any language nuances. 

And because there’s little point in translating your website if you’re not going to be found in your new markets, Weglot takes care of your multilingual SEO, with translated metadata, hreflang tags and translations in the source code of your website. 

Weglot also adds a front-end language switcher to your website to make it easy for your users to switch between the language of their choice. There’s even the option to turn on language redirection so your visitors will be redirected by browser language.

Translate Kleo theme with WeGlot

Installing Weglot on your WordPress website is simple. Weglot is compatible with all WordPress themes and plugins – for the purposes of this article we’ll be using the Kleo theme from SeventhQueen. 

Step 1 

Navigate to Plugins > ‘Add New’ and type Weglot into the search bar. Install Weglot then click the activate button. 

Step 2 

You’ll now have a Weglot tab within your WordPress dashboard. Click on the tab to add your languages. The first box is where you’ll add your API key – you’ll need to create a Weglot account to get access this. 

Then add the original language of your site and enter the new languages you want to translate your site into. Click ‘Save Changes’.  

Step 3 

That’s all there is to it – your multilingual site is now live! Visit your website and you’ll see a language switcher has now been added – this is the default design, but you can make changes within your Wegot tab on your WordPress dashboard (without any code). 

Editing your translations  

As mentioned, Weglot gives you a first layer of automated translation. You then have 2 ways to edit those translations, if you want to. The first is through your translations list, where your translations are displayed side-by-side. You can filter by URL, or use the search bar to look for a specific translation. 

Click in a translation, make your change and the translation will automatically be updated on your website. 

The second way to edit your translations is through the Visual Editor. You’ll be taken to a live preview of your website where you can make edits in context, so you know exactly where the translation is.
