Pursuing Multiple Languages - Best Plugin?

We need to translate our website into at least 8 languages.  Do you have any recommendations on the best translation engines to use? Do any plug into HubSpot? Google's ML based translation is priced on # of characters.  How do I find how many characters my website has?

HI, we use Deepl.com It's not a pluging, but the interface and chrome extension makes it really easy and quick to do translations - Highlight the text, then select the language and it's done.

Hi there! It looks like you you are conducting a multi-lingual site setting. 

 

I am not an expert on translation tools, and won't be able to give you advice on that. But here is some suggestions for your multi-lingual site.

 

To improve your visitors' user experience and engage with customers, you may auto display local language. For example, if your visitor is from France or Germany, it routes him to exampleshop.com?lang=fr, or exampleshop.com?lang=de. IP geolocation tools, like Geo Targetly can detect locations based on visitors' IPs. You can easily set up redirecting rules, each assocated with an individual URL for a specific region. It brings local to visitors immediately, and boosts customer conversion rate.

 

Another issue needs to aware is SEO.  Multi-lingual site may consiste of multiple versions of the same page with slight content variations and hence contain a large amount of duplicate contentIt. It's importatnt to make google understand your site structure and avoid severe google content penality.  Additionally, you can help google only rank relevant pages for particular visitors according to their locations and languages. You may set up hreflang tag for multi-lingual site. If you are interested, you may read the post for more details: https://geotargetly.com/hreflang-seo-guide-for-multilingual-regional-websites

 

Hope it helps!
