To change or use a different language in WordPress manually can be difficult especially for people without so much knowledge of WordPress. The use of a plugin makes this work very easy and manageable by everyone.
One of the most popular plugins is WordPress Language. This plugin automatically downloads and installs the correct language files, and enables you to switch quickly and easily between languages.
To install and configure the WordPress Language plugin, follow these steps:
Log in to your WordPress site as the administrator.
- In the left-hand pane, click Plugins.
- Click Add New.
In the Search text box, type WordPress language, and then click Search Plugins.
In the Name column, locate WordPress Language, and then click Install Now.
After WordPress finishes installing the plugin, click Activate Plugin.
After the plugin is activated, a language selection menu appears in the top menu bar of the administration interface:
To change the WordPress language, select the language you want to use, and then click Switch language. If you do not see the language you want, click more languages to view additional language options.
The new language settings take effect immediately.
