In a perfect world, we’d all speak one language and there’d be no reason to even consider translating our websites to other languages. Unfortunately, that is probably never going to happen. Thanks to plugins such as GTranslate, you can easily let your visitors translate your website’s content into their favorite language and enjoy your content like everyone else.
