BabelZ – Translation WordPress Plugin


BabelZ provides three translator widgets, one Google translate widget and two Yahoo Babel Fish widgets that you can add to your WordPress sidebar. Settings can be edited from the admin settings menu or directly from the widget settings. Google Translate comes with richer options such as pick and choose which languages you would like to offer for translation.

All I ask is that you credit this plugin (i.e. include a link to this page or maybe add a link to your WordPress Blogroll).

For support requests, please post on the BabelZ support forum.


  • Add a Google Translate widget to your sidebar for translating your posts and pages.
  • Choose from over 100+ languages you would like available for translation.
  • Choose from three Google Translate Display Modes
  • Track translation usage with Google analytics
  • Settings can be changed from admin settings page.
