Effortless Multilingual Websites: The Easy Translations Plugin Unveiled

In the dynamic Craft ecosystem, plugins serve as invaluable tools, offering developers shortcuts to avoid the task of reinventing solutions and providing access to a wealth of knowledge and functionalities. Despite their undeniable utility, plugins often come with limitations, such as cost constraints or an inability to effectively address specific issues. That’s where our latest innovation, the Easy Translations” plugin, steps in.

This groundbreaking plugin has garnered recognition by being featured in the worldwide Craft newsletter. But what exactly does the Easy Translations” plugin bring to the table, and how does it stand out from the crowd? Let’s delve into it with one of our developers, David.

David: The Easy Translations’ plugin is a game-changer for streamlining the development of multi-lingual websites, like Borgerhoff & Lamberigts. Typically, this process involves tedious back-and-forth work, where developers manually update hardcoded text in one language to match another. It’s a hassle, to say the least.”

So, how does this plugin simplify the process?

David: Our plugin strikes a balance by allowing clients to directly translate hardcoded text, with their changes securely stored in a separate database. Meaning that the core code remains untouched. It’s incredibly user-friendly – clients can edit content within their content management system or export it, translate offline, and seamlessly re-upload it. The plugin takes care of all the intricate details, ensuring translations are applied correctly.”

That sounds incredibly convenient for clients. But what about developers? How does the Easy Translations” plugin make their lives easier?

David: Developers benefit significantly from this plugin as well. They no longer need to painstakingly search through their code to locate and update translations. Instead, they can easily review all translations in their templates, maintaining a streamlined and efficient workflow.”

As active Craft developers, our goal is to simplify the lives of fellow developers worldwide when it comes to building multilingual websites. We aim to make the process smoother and more efficient, ultimately helping developers save valuable time and effort. Our ultimate aim is to contribute to the continued growth and convenience of the Craft community.
