Details

Do you work at a large company, government or not for profit organization? Do you publish online content in 2 or more languages?

Do you need translations for multiple content management systems including simple HTML websites?

Let's face it. For many organizations, the translation process is overwhelming, expensive and difficult to maintain.

Weglot (www.weglot.com) may be the answer. Weglot has developed a WordPress plugin that features a five minute install, activation and initial configuration. Then Weglot translates your copy automatically, on the fly, and creates a best-effort translation using commercial cloud-based translation services.

If a user chooses French on the website, then the page is translated automatically. There's no translated copy to worry about. There's no practical limit to the number of languages. And it is pay-as-you-go based on the number of words your visitors have translated.

Weglot automatically translates your website content in the cloud, and features an easy workflow to manage all translations in as many as 100+ languages. You must see this innovative solution and how it stacks up against the current competition.

Agenda:
- Introduction to Weglot (https://www.weglot.com), company and staff

- 5 minute demo: Translate a WordPress site in 5 minutes!
+ website to be translated: http://lonely-mallard.w5.wpsandbox.pro/

- A comparison of WeGlot vs the WordPress translation landscape

- Q&A

A free trial to Weglot will be available with a special discount. A light dinner and drinks will be served.

This is our second of three co-sponsored events in Toronto, and Weglot was a WordCamp Toronto 2019 sponsor. The first one was a success and you can read feedback on the meetup page: https://www.meetup.com/WPToronto/events/259270791/

We exceeded our demo Weglot quota of 200,000 words in our first meetup and now have made sure all new translations will work well! We will also get some more answers to your feedback and present the responses from Weglot at this meetup.

Our meeting location allows for a maximum of 20 people in the meeting room. If you RSVP and decide not to attend please make sure your RSVP "no" and allow for others to join from the waitlist. If you would like an onsite meetup or briefing on Weglot, that can be arranged as well.
