Running into obstacles when using WordPress in the default language? Luckily, you can change it! This article will show you how to change WordPress’ language and will provide a step-by-step guide for a better native-language blogging experience.
Language Settings in WordPress
Setting up a site’s language is essential for both website owners and visitors. While you can thoroughly understand and manage your admin page, visitors get to easily navigate and obtain what they need from your site.
Fortunately, when you change the WordPress language, you get two options:
Blog Language. Used to change the dashboard’s language. Each user can set up a different language for their panel. This is a great option if your site’s admins come from different countries and prefer using their native languages.
Interface Language. This setting is used to configure the front end language – or what your visitors see, excluding posts.
Once you activate it, you can create a list of your preferred languages in order. Thus, if WordPress fails to find the translation in the first language on your list, it will load your second language, and so on.
Open the WordPress Dashboard -> Plugins -> Add New.
Type Preferred Languages in the plugin search box.
Click Install Now, then Activate.
Head to Settings -> General.
In the Site Language section, create your language preference list.
Hit Save Changes.
WordPress provides the language support you need to make website management as easy as possible. Not only does this platform provide built-in language options, but it also has open-source translation projects to cover other options. In addition, learning how to change WordPress’ language only takes a few minutes!
You can localize your site by going to the WordPress dashboard and using one of the preinstalled languages. If you don’t find your preferred option in the directory, head to the Translation Team page and install the language from your hPanel or through an FTP client. Alternatively, you can use a plugin that will simplify the process.
