If you are doing business across borders, chances are that you need your website in more than one language. However, that is easier said then done. Although nowadays it fortunately is a lot easier than it used to be!
WordPress has come a long way and so has the development of many plugins that add functionality to a website. In the translation department there are a few of these tools available that offer auto-generated translations; maybe a solution for a personal blog, but certainly not for an official company website!
For those kind of websites you need to be able to use human translated content and the entire site needs to be 100% bi- or multilingual.
Due to my multilingual background I have always been keen to offer my clients multilingual websites and fortunately we have found the perfect solution!
Since mid 2009 I have been working closely together with the people behind WPML, which stands for WordPress Multi Lingual, and with this tool I can guarantee building a 100% multilingual website for you.
This means that I build a WPML-compatible website for you in order to serve your content in more than one language. The only thing left for you is to add the actual content in the languages you have chosen. WPML does not translate anything, you need to take care of that, but if you cannot do in-house translations, ICanLocalize – the company behind WPML – can even help you with the translations at very competitive rates and from within the administration panel of your new website.

Of course I can also implement the changes necessary to add language(s) to your existing website. Since 2011 I have become one of the official WPML Contractors and on a regular basis I assist people giving their websites multilingual functionality.
If you would like to try for yourself to give your website one or more additional languages, I recommend reading the WPML Setup Guide, which I wrote specifically for this purpose.
If it becomes too complicated or you would like me to have a look at it after all, I can do a WPML Assessment for you. The purpose of the WPML assessment is to investigate the cause of the problem(s) you are experiencing on your website.
The WPML plugin is not the typical plug ‘n play plugin and whether or not it works on your site is directly related to your WordPress setup and which (premium) theme and plugins have been installed on your site.
The combinations are endless, so you can understand that it is impossible for us to give you a reliable answer to your questions without being able to have a thorough look at the backend of your site.
After the assessment we write a full report with recommendations and we include an estimate on the next steps if necessary.
