Congratulations to the developer of this plugin! I spent 2 days testing the demo versions of the main competitors but only half a day on the actual translation once I’d selected falang.Extreme simplicity is the key word. I prefer to translate by myself and didn’t need the translation interface which it can prove very useful if you don’t master the target language.The support provided by the developer was extremely responsive and helpful in sorting out the integration with the theme used.Once again, bravo and congratulations for this extension, which I highly recommend.

100% approved! I tried most of the translation plugins out there and each one had something wrong, some of them messed up my website after deactivation. With Falang I was impressed from the beginning of how easy it is to use, intuitive, highly customizable and very light for my website. It works great with Woocommerce, menus and media, url slugs. I manually translated the entire website in no time and for who prefers there is the option to easily do it via google and others. I had to contact the support for something that turned out to be related with another plugin and Stephane helped me the same day. Thank you for this amazing plugin! 🙂
