    Hi there,

    I’m trying to install a google translate plugin for my wedding blog. My family is French and I wanted them to be able to access the blog too. However I can’t see any plugin menu on my dashboard..
    Is it possible to do ? Is there any other alternatives?
    Thanks in advance.

    The blog I need help with is adgwblog.wordpress.com.

    Hi,

    I’m trying to install a google translate plugin for my wedding blog.

    You can’t install plugins on WordPress.com blogs.

    Themes at WordPress.com have an easy method for translations. Any volunteer can help to translate the theme in the particular language. When the translation reaches to 85%, it can be live after reviewed by WordPress.com staff.

    Wedding Theme Translations

    You can find your language at the following translation page of wedding theme.

    https://translate.wordpress.com/projects/wpcom/themes/wedding

    You can help us to complete the translation. Please ping me back here after competing the 85% translation. I will ask WordPress.com staff for the validation and the translation will go live after validation.

    Thanks

    Thanks a million for your help,
    Would that change the entire language setting of the blog then or give the option between English or French to visitors?
    I asking that because my husband to be is Irish and his family& friends are English speakers. My family is French therefore it would be appropriate to have the two options…
    Sorry I’m only new to wordpress and just want to make sure that I don’t
    misunderstand you…
    Thanks in advance

    Hi,

    You will have option in the Admin Panel to switch the language.

    Thanks

    Ok I see that option now,
    However, does that give a choice of languages to the viewers of the blog?

    I guess what I’m asking is : if I switch the language to French in the Admin Panel what happen to the blog then?

    The blog was originally written and layout English, all I want is that when French people go on the blog they have an option to translate the content to French.
    Is that possible?
    Excuse my very slow understanding of it all.
    And thanks in advance.

    I think no. You may give a try.

    With the translation, theme strings will be converted to French. If you have written your content in English, it will remain in English.

    I guess, people of French can easily translate your blog via Google Translate when they are viewing your blog in Google Chrome. Google Chrome will give option to translate any website to the native language.

    Thanks
