How to use TranslatePress, Complete Guide [latest edition in 2024].

WordPress translation plugin

According to W3Tech, about 63.41 TP2T of the top 10 million Web sites on the World Wide Web are written in English. This is followed by Russian (7.1%), Turkish (3.9%) and Spanish (3.7%).

This means that 36.6% of Internet users search in non-English speaking languages. If you have not yet made your site multilingual, you are missing out on a large customer base.

This is the reason why you should make your site multilingual. By making your site multilingual, you will attract visitors from all over the world who are interested in your products.

With TranslatePress, which is introduced in this article, you can easily create a multi-language website.

So, as an actual user of TranslatePress, I will explain how to use and configure it.

I'll also give an honest explanation of the differences between WPML and Polylang, the famous WordPress multilingual plugins.

What is TranslatePress?

TranslatePress Multilingual Plugin

TranslatePress is a powerful plugin that allows you to make your WordPress site multilingual.

With this plugin, you can translate your site into various languages to create a multilingual site.

Why Create a Multilingual Site with TranslatePress?

The advantage of making your site multilingual is that you will get a lot of traffic from other countries and regions. You will be able to attract customers to your site from all over the world.

Here is an example. The default language of this site is Japanese. On top of that, we use TranslatePress to support English and German.

See the top right corner of the site.

TranslatePress WordPress

You can see the flags of the countries lined up in the menu items. If you switch this flag to English, the page content will automatically switch from Japanese to English.

TranslatePress Multilingualization Examples

This is how easy it is to make your site multilingual. Even a small personal site like this one can gain access from all over the world.

You can actually see the regional summaries in my Google Analytics.

Google Analytics TranslatePress

35% of my site's visitors come from the US. There are fewer sessions from Japan.

Even if you don't have many アクセス数s on your site now, you may be able to get PVs from all over the world by making your site multilingual with TranslatePress!

We have also translated our site using TranslatePress. Thanks to it, we are getting a lot of visitors, even from English speaking countries!

On top of that, I have actually sold some of the products I introduce through this site.

Affiliate Jasper AI

Since I started using TranslatePress, I have been able to sell a lot of products that I had not been able to close at all before.

How to use TranslatePress

Next, I will explain how to use TranslatePress. I will show you how to install and configure it.

Install TranslatePress

The "How to install TranslatePress" described in this article is the procedure for the paid version.

If you have signed up for TranslatePress, but don't know how to install it, please refer to this page.

If you want to use the free version, the process is the same as how you normally install WordPress plugins. If you do a plugin search, you will find the free version of TranslatePress. You can use it by installing and activating it.

First, if you are using a paid plan of TranslatePress, please download the plugin and license from TranslatePress My Page.

TranslatePress download

Please keep the license in a safe place as you will use it after you install the plugin!

Next, login to the WordPress admin panel and go to "Plugins" and then "Add New". Then upload the plugin.

How to install TranslatePress

Install TranslatePress and activate it.

Next, I will explain how to set it up. However, it is very easy to set up. Let's quickly go through the settings.

Setup from the WordPress admin panel

When you go to the TranslatePress settings page, you will see a section called "Default Language".

Default language

In this section, choose the language of your WordPress site. For example, in the case of this site, it is Japanese.

Next, choose the languages you want to add to your site. From the "All Languages" section, choose a new language to add.

All languages

Don't forget to save your settings.

Translate the content on the site.

Now, we will actually use TranslatePress to translate the contents of the site.

Once you have opened a page on your site, click on "Translate Page" in the WordPress admin bar.

Translate Page

You will then see a section for translation on the left.

Translation Section

The process of translating content is simple. Just click on the sentence or word you want to translate.

You will then be able to translate in the section on the left.

When you are done translating, click "Save Translate".

After saving, you will see a language switcher in the page where you can change the language displayed. It's very easy!

By the way, I don't use the default language switcher because I don't like the look of it, instead I put the language switcher in the menu bar of the site.

Automatically translate your content

If you don't want to translate manually, we recommend you to use automatic translation.

Paid version of TranslatePress(Business plan and above)comes with an add-on for automatic translation.

With this add-on, you can automatically translate your WordPress site.

By the way, 90% of the content on this site is also automatically translated. Since we have posted more than 60 articles on this site, it is very troublesome to translate all of them manually. It would take a lot of time and effort. Therefore, all articles are automatically translated.

Using the automatic translation is easy.

First, go to the TranslatePress settings page as you did before.

Then click on "Automatic Translation". This is where you will enable automatic translation.

TranslatePress Automatic

Then the settings for automatic translation will be displayed

There are two translation services to choose from for automatic translation: Google Translate and DeepL. This site uses DeepL to automatically translate the site.

You will need to enter the API key for DeepL.

By the way, DeepL can automatically translate up to 500,000 characters per month for free. The quality of the translation is also high, so I recommend DeepL translation.

After entering the API key, save the file. You are now done.

For automatic translation, switch the language within the page you want to translate, and all the content in the page will be translated automatically.

I think it's a little confusing, so please watch the video below.

Even long pages can be translated fully automatically by just loading them. It's very convenient.

By the way, if you are not satisfied with the result of the automatic translation, you can still correct it manually.

So far, I have explained the basic setup and usage of TranslatePress. It is very easy, isn't it? If you have any questions about the settings, please ask them in the comments section below this article. I will answer.

TranslatePress Features

Here is an introduction to the features of TranslatePress.

Automatic translation function

This feature requires a Business or Developer plan.

The most notable feature is automatic translation, which allows you to automatically translate all of your site's content using Google Translate or DeepL translation.

Google Translate is not expensive either, but I use DeepL to translate my site because of its high translation accuracy.

You will need an API key to do the DeepL translation.


Don't worry, you can get the API key for free. By the way, with the DeepL API key, you can translate 500,000 characters per month for free. For a small site, free is good enough.

If you want to translate more than 500,000 characters per month, you can pay a fee. Even in that case, the monthly fee is very inexpensive.

DeeoL Pro

I translated an additional 2,000,000 words in one month, and the cost was 5,630 yen. Cheap.

By the way, if you use DeepL to translate automatically, the settings screen will show you how many characters you have translated.

DeepL Number of translations per day

You can limit the number of words you can translate in a day, so you will not be charged unexpected amounts.

Tip: You can manually modify the automatically translated content later.

Manual translation

It is also possible to manually translate the content on the page. Just select the words you want to translate and click on them.

How to use TranslatePress, Complete Guide [latest edition in 2024].

The section for translation will appear on the left. Manual translation is available within this section.

In this section, you can also translate the article title, meta description, URL slug, etc., all at your leisure.

Automatic Redirect

The auto-redirect feature allows you to automatically redirect visitors based on their browser language or IP address the first time they visit your site.

For example, this site is written in Japanese, but if you access this site from the U.S., you will be automatically redirected to a page written in English.

Alternatively, if you access this site from Germany, you will be automatically redirected to a German page.

I don't use this feature because it is prone to problems with Googlebot compatibility. It's useful, though.

Wide range of languages supported

TranslatePress currently supports 221 languages.

Adding a language to your site is easy. First, go to the settings page and set the default language for your site.

In the case of this site, Japanese is set.

How to use TranslatePress, Complete Guide [latest edition in 2024].

Then, you can choose the language and add it. As you can see, you can create a multi-language site with very simple operations.

Language switcher (toggle)

TranslatePress also has a switch function to switch between languages.

It would be faster to see the actual product, so please see the image below.

TranslatePress Switcher

You can automatically display a "language switcher" to freely switch languages on the page.

I don't use it because I don't want to show the language switcher in the page.

Instead, we are going to show the language switcher in the menu bar. See below.

How to use TranslatePress, Complete Guide [latest edition in 2024].

The way to make the language switch appear in the menu bar is simple.

First, go to "WordPress admin" > "Gaian" > "Menus". Then you will see an item called Language Switcher.

TranslatePresss Menu

Now add the language switcher to the menu bar. Save and you are done.

This way, you can show the language switcher in the menu bar in your site.

If you are not quite sure how to set it up, please watch my explanatory video.

You can set it up quickly in about a minute. Please give it a try.

Exclude words and sentences that you don't want to translate

One of my favorite features in TranslatePress is "Exclude strings". This feature allows you to exclude words and strings that you do not want to be translated from the automatic translation.

For example, you don't need to translate the words for your products and services, right? If you translate it, Google may judge it as a different word.

On my site, I also exclude service names from automatic translation.

TranslatePress Exclude

This feature is actually quite useful.

Translator account

Let's say you want to outsource the translation of your WordPress site.

But it's scary to give a third party the privilege of WordPress administrator, isn't it? I'm worried that they might delete the contents of my site without permission, or misuse it.

As a feature of TranslatePress, you can provide "translator accounts". With this feature, you can invite users to translate content on your site while keeping your site secure.

You can protect your important content and privacy information even when having it translated by an external translator.

Quick and generous support

Since I started using TranslatePress, I have had one major problem. The access to our site dropped drastically.

So I contacted TranslatePress support.

Then I received an email with a straightforward solution. In just 30 minutes.

How to use TranslatePress, Complete Guide [latest edition in 2024].

I sent an email at 9:37 a.m. Support replied at 10:09 a.m. It's amazing.

As you can see, the support response from TranslatePress is amazingly fast & specific.

The only reply I got was an empty one, which solved all my problems, thanks to you, and my site's traffic is back to normal.

Now I have people coming from all over the world to read my blog!

Price Plans for TranslatePress

TranslatePress is also available in a free version, but the free version lacks features that are essential for multilingual sites.

If you want to set up a full-fledged multi-language website with WordPress, I recommend the paid plan.

How to use TranslatePress, Complete Guide [latest edition in 2024].
Takeo Fujii

I also wanted to create a full-fledged multilingual site that would attract people from all over the world, so I chose the paid plan.

For TranslatePress pricing plans, see the image below.

Price Plans for TranslatePress
  • Personal Plan
  • Business Plan
  • Developer Plan

There are three plans offered. The cheapest plan is the Personal plan. It costs 79 euros per year.

This plan is inexpensive, but it does not have all the features you need to create a multilingual site.

So, I have signed up for the Business plan.

If you want to make your WordPress site multilingual, I recommend the Business plan.

Why should I choose the Business plan?

This is because the Business plan and the Developer plan allow you to use the automatic translation feature of DeepL.

With this automatic translation feature, you can automatically translate the language of your site at DeepL. Also, DeepL is the most natural translation service in the world. It will translate the content of your site with extreme fidelity.

It is very difficult to translate manually. That's why I use the Business plan, which allows me to use the automatic translation of DeepL.

When you are going to make your WordPress site multilingual, I would recommend the Business plan for the essential SEO and automatic translation features.

If you only have a few pages in your site, the Personal plan is sufficient. If you only have a few pages, it's easy to translate them manually.

Is the price of TranslatePress too high?

I have considered various options to make my WordPress site multilingual.

  • Polylang
  • Gtranslate
  • Weglot
  • WPML

I have considered various multilingualization tools. I have explained this in a YouTube video in the past, so if you are interested, please watch the following video.

After much consideration, I chose TranslatePress because it was the cheapest overall.

The Business plan of TranslatePress that I have signed up for is 139 Euros/year. In Japanese yen, it costs about 17,800 yen per year.

Euro and Yen

By the way, here are the rates for other site translation services

  • Weglot Pro 490 EUR/year
  • Polylang Pro 198 EUR/year
  • WPML Multilingual CMS $99/year
  • Gtranslate Business $299.90/year

I've listed the plans that are as close as possible to TranslatePress' Business plan (139 Euros/year).

Of these, WPML is the cheapest. However, there is an additional cost for automatic translation at DeepL.


If you try to translate the entire contents of the site, you will be charged a ridiculous amount of money...

With TranslatePress, you can automatically translate 500,000 characters per month for free at DeepL. This means that you can automatically translate the content on your site at no additional cost.

As a result, I decided that the Business plan of TranslatePress is the most affordable. It is the cheapest in total.

The annual fee is 139 Euros, which is about 11 Euros per month (about 1,200 yen). For this amount of money, you can make your entire site multilingual and get visitors from all over the world for a very low price.

You can automatically translate 500,000 characters per month for free, so you can easily create a multilingual website.

I can take PayPal payments!

By the way, TranslatePress accepts credit card and PayPal payments.

I also pay by PayPal.

How to use TranslatePress, Complete Guide [latest edition in 2024].

You can buy from Japan with confidence.

TranslatePress also has a 15-day money back guarantee.

Even if you encounter any problems while using the product, you can contact support and they will solve the problem immediately. Therefore, I don't think they will give you a refund, but in case they can't help you, you will get a full refund within 15 days.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here is a list of frequently asked questions about TranslatePress.

If you are not sure about other multilingualization tools, please take a look at this page for consideration.

Is TranslatePress suitable for creating multilingual sites?

There are many options to make your WordPress site multilingual. I had a hard time deciding which method to use to make my WordPress site multilingual. As a result, I ended up with TranslatePress.

There are three reasons.

  • You can automatically translate an entire page at DeepL
  • Multilingual SEO support.
  • Page speed will not be slowed down.

On top of that, it is reasonably priced. Cheap. It can be made to support multiple languages at no extra cost.

There is no additional cost every time you add one language to your site, like other multilingualization tools. All in all, TranslatePress is very affordable.

I recommend it with confidence.

Is TranslatePress free?

TranslatePress is free to install and use. However, I use the paid version. But I use the paid version because the features of the free version are quite limited.

Here are the features available in the free TranslatePress

  • Translate the entire page
  • Support for dynamic strings
  • Image translation
  • Automatic translation (different from translation using API key of DeepL)
  • WooCommerce support
  • Language switcher (switching)
  • Free Support

For a small personal blog, the free version is sufficient.

However, if you want to make your site multilingual in earnest, you need the paid version. The free version of TranslatePress does not come with multilingual SEO features. It also does not come with DeepL translation.

To make your site multilingual, we recommend the paid version.

Which plan do you recommend?

We recommend the Business plan. Deepl auto-translation is a must for efficient translation of your site's content.

If you want to translate your WordPress site with high accuracy and make it fully multilingual, I recommend the Business plan.

I myself have signed up for the Business plan to translate this site.

TranslatePress Business Plan

The cheapest Personal plan comes with the SEO Pack add-on, but it does not include the automatic translation add-on for DeepL. Therefore, you will have to translate it manually.

If you want to create a multilingual site, I recommend the Business plan.

Will TranslatePress slow down my site?

Site display speed is a very important aspect of SEO.

If your site's display speed is slow, it will stress your visitors and increase the bounce rate. Slow page speed will also lower your Google rating.

Therefore, you may be worried that "If I add TranslatePress, will it slow down the display speed of my site? So, you may feel uneasy.

Don't worry, adding TranslatePress will not slow down your site.

I will show you a real example. The display speed of my site is as follows.

Smart Phone Display Speed TranslatePress
PC display speed TranslatePress

Putting TranslatePress in this way will not slow down the display speed of your site.

In fact, even with TranslatePress on our site, the articles are indexed without any problems, so there is no negative impact on SEO!

Translatepress Index SEO
Here are the Google search results for Singapore

The translated English version of the article is also well indexed by Google.

Is there a monthly plan?

No, we don't. TranslatePress only offers an annual plan.

By the way, you can pay for TranslatePress with PayPal.

TranslatePress PayPal

What happens if I don't renew my annual plan?

You do not need to renew your annual plan to continue using TranslatePress.

However, if you do not renew, you will not be able to receive updates after one year.

Don't worry, your saved translations will not be lost.

Tell me about support.

TranslatePress support is by email.

You will usually receive a reply to your email within 24 hours. Except for holidays.

The support is very attentive and provides specific solutions.

Having said that, TranslatePress is basically easy to set up without using support, so you won't have any trouble.

Can I use it on any WordPress site?

Yes, any WordPress site is compatible with TranslatePress.

In addition to personal blogs and sites, you can also use it for corporate sites, e-commerce sites, etc.

Incidentally, it is also compatible with WooCommerce. Therefore, it is also a recommended multilingual plugin for those who want to sell their products worldwide.

How do you do?
I have installed TranslatePress as a trial. The site here was helpful.

However, we have had Paypal intervene and communicate with the seller due to unjustified charges.

I was fooled by the 15 day trial period 100% money back guarantee, no risk.
To try the automatic translation feature, DeepL, I had to enter a payment method. This is where you made a mistake.
You should not enter a payment method.

After 2 hours of testing, I noticed that I could not go back to the Japanese page from the English page. No matter how many times I changed the settings, the same thing happened. It was unusable.

When I cancelled after 2 hours, I was already billed at that point.

It is not a debit after 15 days. It is unfair.
Paypal has closed that it was justified, but is moving again with an appeal.

The content here is not correct regarding the most important matter, money.
I hope it will be handled so that there will be no other victims.

Mr. Yoshida.

Nice to meet you. First of all, thank you for contacting me.
It is encouraging to hear that it was helpful again.

However, I am concerned to hear that you are currently in a difficult situation.
I wish to respond to the extent that I am able to answer your questions.

First, we identify the cause.
Mr. Yoshida is now in trouble because he is being charged without permission.
Is it DeepL? Or is it TranslatePress?
Which of these services did you receive an unauthorized billing without permission?

If you have been charged a fee without permission at ■DeepL

DeepL can translate up to 500,000 characters per month free of charge.
If you do not upgrade, billing will not start.

Did you upgrade to DEEPL API PRO, Yoshida-san?
If you have not done so and DeepL has charged you without your permission, it is unfair.
Please contact DeepL for more information.

■If you are being charged a fee by TranslatePress without permission

If Mr. Yoshida is making unauthorized charges to TranslatePress without our permission.
I would like to ask one question. Is the site you applied for the following official site?

You will need to contact TranslatePress support.

I wish you luck in resolving the issue.

About the bug in *TranslatePress

I noticed that it does not return from the English page to the Japanese page.

I have also checked this site for confirmation on this issue.
However, we were unable to reproduce this problem.
This would be my guess.

Compatibility with WordPress plug-ins and themes
Server environment issues

Either of these is considered to be occurring.
We recommend that you contact TranslatePress support for this as well.

Hi, Suppose I have a Japanese site hosted on an X server and I want to translate the entire hosted Japanese site into Spanish using Translatepress. Do you know if the translated Spanish articles will be saved on the X server or not?

I use Translatepress to translate, but I'm concerned about the Today's character count, which is counting every day even though I haven't posted any articles. w

Hi CZ!
TranslatePress translations are stored in a database (DB).
To answer your question, the Spanish translated text is stored on CZ's site database in the X server. Therefore, even if your TranslatePress subscription expires, the translations will be retained.

Best regards,

Thank you for your reply.
I see, so the Translatepress HP DB refers to the hosting server, I thought it was stored on the TP server.

Hello. Nice to meet you.

I used to use GTranslate, but with the recent depreciation of the yen, the cost has become unbearable, and there are also many mistranslations, so I was looking for a service that can use DeepL and came across this article.

I signed up for the TranslatePress business plan on the same day I found it, and ran into the problem that I couldn't get back to Japanese that Yoshida-san wrote about in his comment above. I just disabled the GTranslate plugin, but that didn't seem to help. (I guess it's also a big mistake to say that I was charged unfairly 💦)

Manual translation also turned blank, but this too was fixed by disabling Flying Scripts due to interference with the plugin. This may be just my environment, but I hope this will be helpful to others who have experienced the same problem.

It will still need to be adjusted in detail, but so far it is working comfortably.

Thank you for introducing us to TranslatePress.
Very helpful.

Mr. Shin Jimba.

Fujii. Thank you for your comment.
We are very glad you found it helpful, and TranslatePress is easy to use once you get used to it.
It would be nice to be able to integrate with DeepL.

I also read the blog of Mr. Shin Kamima.
The information on each of the dams is organized and summarized.
This is exactly the right content for multilingualization.

As a complete aside, I found this article interesting.
We will continue to support you.

Nice to meet you.
Thank you for this very informative article.

I would love to make my site multilingual as well.
So let me ask you a question.

1. does TranslatePress also have a non-DeepL translation function?
I am very tempted to translate at DeepL, but my site has a large amount of content and I am concerned that it would cost a lot of money to translate all of it.
I was wondering if TranslatePress can translate on its own.

2. is it possible to use the free version of DeepL to have one part translated into DeepL?
I would like to use it to have only 500,000 words translated for the reason of question 1 above.
After using DeepL, I was wondering if it would be possible to use the TranslatePress translation feature for content that does not fit into the 500,000 words. (This is assuming the answer to question 1 is yes.)

We are very sorry for your time, but we would appreciate your response.

I visited from Youtube and it is a great introduction to a tool that the public does not have information about. Thank you very much.
We will use this information to help us select tools to purchase before Black Friday.

Fujii. Thank you for your comment.
I'll answer one at a time 😎.

There are two types of automatic translation in TranslatePress.
(1) DeepL
Google Cloud Translation v2

If, like Mr. Thomson, you have a large amount of content, you can
We recommend automatic translation using (2) Google Translation.
The quality of the translation is lower than DeepL, but it is by far the best rate.
*Of course, even though the quality of translations is declining, the quality is increasing every year.

See below for rates.

Or you can translate manually without using either.
But Mr. Thomson said you have a lot of content.
Manual translation is not recommended.

Needs to be translated accurately.
Manual translation is recommended only for important pages.

Regarding the use of the free version of DeepL to have one part of the article translated by DeepL, I just had an article that I was going to translate, so I gave it a try.

You can also translate only one page like this.
Please give it a try. It's very convenient 💪.

If you have any questions, please contact us.
Thank you very much for your confirmation.

Thank you for your very thoughtful response.
I have been looking at your other contents and find them very informative.

I see you can only do one copy at DeepL!
I would love to try it.

Please allow me to ask one additional question on the fee.
In your response.
> We recommend automatic translation using Google Translation in (2).
>>The quality of the translation is lower than DeepL, but it is by far the best price.
There is a

I checked the amount, and both services are free for the first 500,000 words, and after that, they are free for the next 500,000 words.
DeepL: 2,500 yen / 1,000,000 characters
Google: 20$/1,000,000 characters
It was stated.
Due to the depreciation of the yen, Google appears to be more expensive in terms of fees, but am I in the wrong place to check?

We apologize for the inconvenience, but we would appreciate your response.
I'm looking forward to working with you.

Oh, I made a mistake. I am very sorry.
It is true that Google Translation is more expensive because of the weak yen.
You are correct.

It depends on how much content Mr. Thomson translates.
If you are translating a large amount of content, either method will probably cost a reasonable amount of money.

Hi Fujii-san, nice to meet you.
Thank you for the very clear article!
Actually, I would like to ask you two questions.

First of all, regarding automatic redirects, you say that they "tend to cause problems with Googlebot," but is there any good way to automatically adjust the display to the language used by the user?

Also, for example, when sharing an article with a Spanish person via URL, is there a way to include in the URL the information that it should appear in Spanish?

Should I consider something other than TranslatePress for this application?
I would appreciate your advice!


Fujii. Thank you for your question.
I was using the Redirect Directly option (an automatic redirect feature based on the language of the site visitor's browser).

If you use Google Chrome browser in Japanese, the article is automatically in Japanese,
If you are using English, the article is automatically written in English,

This is a function that can be branched out depending on the language of the browser.
However, this method caused problems, so we removed this feature.
Since then, the automatic redirection function has never been used.

However, I found out later,
How to avoid problems with Googlebot compatibilityThere also seems to be a

The "Pop-up and Hello Bar" heading on the above page explains as follows

I'd like to know if you have a problem with the Redirect Directly option, as it may cause problems with Google's indexing."
We recommend trying one of the pop-up features (optional) to resolve this issue."

I think this pop-up function would fit H.C.'s application.

What is the pop-up function?

first (of all)Image herefor more information.

Pop-up feature when the "Automatic User Language Detection Add-on" detects that a site visitor uses a different language,
Visitors can be notified and asked if they would like to read the page in another language detected.
This feature seems to avoid glitches and problem occurrences.

2) Also, for example, when sharing an article with a Spanish person via URL, is there a way to include in the URL the information that it should appear in Spanish?

Next, we will answer this question.

When sharing article URLs with Spaniards,
To view the translated page in Spanish,
You can indicate this with the "article URL".

See the image below.

As shown in the image above, German pages have the language code "de" in the URL.
If you translate a page into Spanish, the language code "es" will appear in the URL.

So, for example, let's say H.C. wrote an article.

The URL above is the article in Japanese.
If translated into Spanish,

This will be the case. When sharing with Spaniards,のURLをシェアすれば、強制的にスペイン語の記事を表示させられます。

I am afraid this is a long story.
We hope this is helpful.

If you have any additional questions, please feel free to ask.

Mr. Fujii.

Thank you for your very quick and very clear answer.

I would like to use the automatic redirect function based on the information given by Mr. Fujii.
I also fully understood the URL.

There were few articles on translatepress, so Mr. Fujii's article, which explains it in such detail, helped me a lot.

Thank you very much.


Thank you for your comment reply.

TranslatePress also has a 15-day money back guarantee period,
In the unlikely event that the automatic redirection that H.C. wants does not work, don't worry.

We are very happy that this article was helpful to you.
We will work hard to provide more accurate and detailed information in the future.

Thank you very much for your help as well. It was very encouraging.

Mr. Fujii,

Thank you for the very useful information.

For operating a multilingual site at TranslatePress,
For fully automated translation with the DeepL API, DeeL has provided the following information.
I would like to ask about the translation fee,

On the official page of the API at DeepL,
Base fee + translated text (pay-as-you-go) and
It is shown.

I initially,
If the articles to be updated are 5,000 words per article,
If multilingualization was set to 6 countries in the settings,

■Basic fee (API-pro ¥630)
■5000 words (1 article) x 6 (for 6 countries)
■10 articles (1 month)

Total 300,000 words (1 month)

Basic fee 630 + number of characters (0.0025 [1 character] x 300000 characters)

Amount billed = 630 + 750 = ¥1380

I thought that would be the case,

While doing a lot of research, I came to the following


User visits the page,

◎In case of automatic API translation = when a user visits and the page is translated
◎In case of manual switcher = when the user switches with the switcher


If the above
When a user visits a page and it's translated, you set the price.

I was setting up an automatic API translation,
When it comes to sites with numerous accesses,
I was wondering if there would be huge fees involved.

If, hypothetically, 1,000 people visit one page per day
If it is an automatic API translation,

Simple math, on a single page,

5000 characters x 1000 users (1000 translations) = 5,000,000 characters

So, since it will be

If many pages are viewed,

Even small, privately operated sites charge outrageous fees.
I am concerned that it will be called upon.

Mr. Fujii's fee structure for this DeepL is
If you know of any, I would appreciate it if you could let me know.


Preferably a multilingual site that doesn't cost too much.
We would appreciate it if you could tell us if there is a better way to manage the operation.

Ms. Crystal.

This is Fujii, and I will explain about the fees for TranslatePress's DeepL API.
First of all, we would like to reassure you that if you use the API with proper settings, you will be able to use theNo exorbitant fees will be charged.
This is because, at TranslatePressIt is possible to limit the number of characters translated per day.
See the image below.

By setting this, you can set a limit of "Translate up to 100,000 words per day. No more than 100,000 words per day.
This prevents exorbitant API fees of tens or hundreds of thousands of yen per day.

There is also a "Today's character count" under the section where you can set that limit.
This represents "the number of characters translated on DeepL on that day.
In other words, it is easy to check how much API is being used.
Therefore, there is no need to worry about overuse.

In addition, DeepL API (Pro),
Translation restrictions can also be set on the DeepL side.
See image below.

In other words, I can set the "character limit to translate" on both the TranslatePress side and the DeepL side,
There is no need to worry about overuse. Please rest assured.

>I was setting up an automatic API translation,
>When it comes to sites with a large number of visitors,
>I was wondering if there would be huge fees involved.

We will also provide an answer here.
I understand that you are very anxious,
Even if 1,000 people visited a page per day, this would not occur.
Because once a page is translated at DeepL, it stays that way.
Therefore, even if a second person accesses the site, the translation will not start again. The second and subsequent accesses will not cause the translation to start again.
This means that even if 1000 people visit the same page in a day, it will be translated only once.

Still, you may be concerned.
We invite you to try the DeepL API for free.
The DeepL API offers free monthly translations of 500,000 characters.

*If 500,000 characters are not enough, you can subscribe to a paid plan for the DeepL API.
In other words, the best way to be sure is to try it out for free and see how much is actually translated in a day.

By the way, about a good way to run a multilingual site that doesn't cost much,
With a little sophistication, it can be operated without spending any money at all.
With the advent of ChatGPT in 2023, this method is now possible.

However, this is due to a bit of technical content,
Personally, I think TranslatePress is a good choice.

Because, as I mentioned above.
Deepl API can translate 500,000 characters per month for free.
For small sites, this is sufficient for translation.

Again, this is a digression,

At first,


We recommend that you translate your site in these two languages only.

It's a personal failing on my part...
I myself ended up translating one site into many languages, including Russian, German, French, Chinese, and Korean.
However, for most visitors to the site, the only languages used were Japanese and English.
I remember that other languages were not used much.

Therefore, please try to support only Japanese and English first.
In this case, it consumes less API and does not fail like I did.

If we determine that there is demand for other languages,
It would be nice to see other languages added.

I hope this answer is helpful.
If you have any further questions, please feel free to ask 💪.

Mr. Fujii.

Thank you for your help.
Please excuse my new comment!

Thank you for your very thoughtful reply,
Thank you very much.

I understand the content of the translation of DeepL.
This relieved me of my fears.

Also on measures to deal with small-scale operations.
Thank you for your detailed information and we will take it into consideration.

Thank you for your suggestion.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any further questions 💪.

Mr. Fujii.

Thanks for your time,
Thank you very much for your help the other day.

I'll add it again.
I would like to ask you a question,

In "TranslatePress,
It's a translation item related to SEO,

If it becomes a paid version,

SEO Pack Add-on

I wonder if you could use this one,

The parts of the SEO that should be translated, at a minimum, are,

◎Title of each page
◎Description of each page
◎Slugs for each posting page
◎Slugs for each fixed page
◎Category slugs
◎Tag slug
ait tag

Is it sufficient to cover these areas?


For the official guide to "TranslatePress."

Multilingual Site Map

About this one,


TranslatePress extends the sitemap functionality added by the SEO plugin to automatically create a multilingual sitemap with all translated content.

Multilingual sitemap support is available in the most popular SEO plugins.

Yoast SEO
Rank Math
All in One SEO Pack
Squirrly SEO


I found the above statement,

What this means is,

Any one of the SEO plugins in the list above.
If you download and activate it,
Automatically create a sitemap for each language automatically,
Am I correct in understanding that you will send that data to Google?

SEO plugins from the list above,
If you have any recommendations, I would appreciate it if you could share them as well.

Listed above,

SEO Pack Add-on
■Multilingual Site Map

If you take these two measures,
The rest is on Google,
Multilingual pages are available for each country.
Will it be indexed?

Ms. Crystal.

Thank you very much for your usual support. My name is Fujii.
Thank you for your question.

Translation is recommended for SEO purposes.
Recommended SEO plug-ins
How to use the multilingual sitemap

We will answer these three questions.
Areas that should be translated for SEO
The SEO Pack Add-on is one of your paid options.
First, regarding the parts related to SEO that should be translated:

Basically, there should be no problem in translating those sections that you have presented.
A well translated and optimized website will be effective for search engine rankings in each language.

Recommended SEO Plug-ins
I recommend Rank Math. In addition to being translated into Japanese and easy to use,
The free version works well enough.
Most importantly, I use this SEO plugin myself.
(We also use it on this site.)

We use most of the prominent SEO plugins,
Because Squirrly SEO does not yet support Japanese,
I think it is best to avoid using it.

How to use the multilingual sitemap

A series of the SEO plug-ins you mentioned can automatically generate a multilingual sitemap with translated content.
It increases the likelihood that content in each language will be properly indexed by search engines such as Google.

There is a reason I used the ambiguous phrase "increases the likelihood."
This is because just creating a multilingual sitemap may not be enough to get indexed.

>> Am I correct in understanding that you will send that data to Google?

We recommend submitting a multilingual sitemap to Google's search console.
By submitting a sitemap to Google Search Console,
Google will be able to crawl Crystal's WordPress site more easily,
New or updated pages will appear more quickly in search results.

Even with these measures, the speed and order of indexing depends on Google's algorithm.
However, with a good multilingual sitemap and SEO strategy,
The possibility of display in search engines in each country is increased.

Rank Math and TranslatePress SEO Pack Add-on,
I think it will be displayed with no problem at all.

I am currently in the consideration stage, but I am also considering SEO services to accelerate indexing, which would get pages into the search engines in a matter of days.
(Also, we are not able to provide information because we have not yet decided on the fee and have not yet established a service operation system.)

If you are still not displayed in the search engines even after taking the necessary measures,
We would be happy to discuss this with you.

If you have any additional questions, please ask anytime 💪.

Mr. Fujii.

Thank you for your help,
Thank you for your response.

SEO Pack Add-on

Here are the translated parts and their impact on SEO
I understand.

■Multilingual Site Map

I was asked to recommend plug-ins,
Thank you very much.

Even if the sitemap is also created automatically,
It's better to submit it manually to Google in the search console.
So it's a good thing.

Yes, sir.


I have a bad indexing situation with practice on my end.
If you have any inconvenience,
At that time, we will be happy to discuss this with you for a fee.

I digress,

Since I am regarding multilingualized sites.
I have a lot of questions on "TranslatePress."

When we were thinking of making our news site multilingual, we saw your Youtube video and thought that Translatepress might be a good fit, so we are planning to implement it soon. Thank you very much for the very useful information. I would be very grateful if you could tell me about the following when you are free.
We are not very familiar with it and think it may have already been answered by you, but we are not sure about that either.

News site management (news articles/daily postings, columns, irregular postings, etc.)

I want to automatically translate all the articles in the current material.
Languages: English and 1-2 other languages (Asian countries)
Translation is done using the Deepl API

Q: I think the Translete business is appropriate, what do you think?
Q: Should Deepl be free or PRO tinkering?
*I thought it was PRO considering the current article translation, but after the introduction, it is not 500,000 words per month.
*Is it OK to use the free version to translate articles as far as it can be done with the current articles in the free version (new articles first)?
Q: If you have any suggestions, I would appreciate your advice.

Thank you very much for your cooperation.

I was using TranslatePress and at first it was able to translate automatically, but for some reason, just recently, after about a month, it translated the first part of the blog, but the body of the blog is not responding at all. I'm thinking of removing the plugin and starting from scratch again, but I'm not sure if that would be a good idea.

I'm Takeru Fujii.

Thank you for your question regarding the automatic translation of TranslatePress.
I, as one user, would like to help you about TranslatePress.

Based on the symptoms you described, removing and reinstalling the plugin is not necessarily the solution.
Problems with the translation function can be caused by a variety of reasons, including conflicts with WordPress themes or other plug-ins.

There is one thing we would like you to confirm.
Automatic translation is
Google Translation
... DeepL
Which is it?

If you use the free version of DeepL, you can translate up to 500,000 words per month for free.
If this number of characters is exceeded, no translation will be performed.
You will need to use the DeepL API for an additional fee.

Many blog posts
Word count for many blog posts
Many translated passages
Number of languages to be translated

If these are many, they can exceed 500,000 words.
Please check once.

Does TranslatePress automatically translate each time it is accessed?

If so, it's a high-traffic site,

There is a concern of over 500,000 words per month.

Thank you for your question.
First, once the translation is done automatically, it is kept in that translation state.
In other words, no matter how many times it is accessed, it is not translated dozens or hundreds of times each time.
There is no risk of unexpected automatic translation.

Please see the following comments for a detailed understanding of this

The TranslatePress setting also allows you to limit the number of characters translated per day.
We hope that you will be at ease. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us!
