I mean, ratings says all. Pure 5 stars! Falang multilanguage is a brilliant and easy to use plugin. Updates are constant and support is AMAZING. If you like it, tell your client to buy it. It is worth every penny. High five to developer. 10/10

After spending many hours searching for a solution for a multi-lingual site, I came across Falang. It exactly solves my use-case. I don't need translation services and don't want to pay for an expensive premium plugin that includes 'translation credits' .. and it actually works! I use Divi so installed Falang for Divi Lite.. also seamless and totally useful I'm so happy I'm going to buy the (modestly priced) premium version anyway even though I don't need to for my functionality (which is rare for me!) I did spend a few hours getting setup with my second language which is NZ Māori, which is not in Falang's or Wordpress' predefined languages. See my post in the Support section on this.

For my e-commerce website, I actually tested a lot of translators for Woocommerce: TranslatePress -> Bug with the B2B for Woocommerce plugin GTranslate -> Impossible to translate everything correctly with automatic and manual translation Weglot -> Recurring payment system for mandatory automatic translation (it seems the same as Gtranslate) WPML -> Too heavy. My website was too slow WPGLOBUS -> Unpleasant to translate the menus with coding strings I was pleasantly surprised by Falang for its ease and simplicity, and efficiency. In short, Falang translator was the best value for money and simplicity, better than other competitors plugins. Finally, the support is excellent and fast! Try it and you'll love it!

Best plugin ever. Have try other multi language plugin, but for me, falang more simple on arranging all translation post, so it's more suitable for me. But I have problem on translating meta description on translated page, I'm using All in One SEO plugin, and already add custom field for translated description field on post, but the meta description still not changing.
