“Multilingual WordPress”

The web is world wide, and much of the world does not speak English, the default language of WordPress.  This talk will demonstrate how to easily create a WordPress site in a language other than English, and/or with multiple languages.

We will: set up a WordPress site that is not English, see what is needed in themes and plugins to use them in other languages, and learn how to create translations for themes and plugins. We will then review the different strategies and options for creating multilingual sites, from simple sites with custom themes, to multilingual plugins and multisite installs, and the issues related to each approach.

This talk should be informative for WordPress users of any skill level.
