Not all the information are available in all the languages and that is why Google has introduced the Translate feature. If some other nationality viewers happen to visit your site and like to translate your content, then they have to copy, open the Google translate page and translate them. How good it will be if you reduce their strain of doing that. All of you have to do is place a Google translate option in each of your posts. With GTranslate, it is possible the content can be translated to about 58 languages which all means about 98% of the Internet users can be benefited from you. In this article, ill guide you how to install the plugin and activate it.
1. Download the GTranslate .rar file from the WordPress plugin page.
2. Extract the content and keep it.
3. Use a FTP client to login as admin in WordPress and paste the plugin in the plugins folder. The path is as follows, web -> content -> wp-content -> plugins.
4. Now login to your WordPress account, click on plugins, and finally on the inactive plugins.
