Multisite Language Switcher


Une extension simple, puissante et facile à utiliser qui va ajouter le support multilingue à une installation WordPress multisite
, i.e. multiple sous-domaines ou dossiers (Si vous devez configurer plusieurs sites sur plusieurs domaines, vous voudrez également utiliser l’extension WordPress MU
Domain Mapping
aussi longtemps que les domaines sont tous hébergés sur le même serveur.).

Le commutateur de langues multisite vous permet de gérer les traductions d’articles, de pages, de types de contenu personnalisés, de catégories, d’étiquettes et de taxinomies personnalisées.

L’extension utilise des icônes de drapeaux depuis FamFamFam. Merci à Mark James pour son formidable travail. Je souhaite également remercier Jürgen Mayer pour la création de la bannière de l’extension.

Please, don’t forget to rate this plugin! 🙂


Merci à tous les traducteurs pour leur travail remarquable.

If you have created your own language pack, or have an update of an existing one, you can send me your gettext PO and MO so that I can
bundle it into the Multisite Language Switcher. You can download the latest POT file
from here.

  • Multisite Language Switcher


  • Download the plugin and uncompress it with your preferred unzip programme
  • Copy the entire directory in your plugin directory of your WordPress blog (/wp-content/plugins)
  • Activate the plugin in your plugin administration page (by the network administrator on all the blogs or by the root blog administrator for each particular blog).
  • You need to activate the plugin once in each blog, set the configuration in Settings -> Multisite Language Switcher

Now you can:

  • connect your translated pages and posts in Posts -> Edit or Page -> Edit
  • connect your translated categories and tags in Posts -> Categories or Post -> Tags
  • connect your Custom Post Types and Custom Taxonomies across languages
  • use the widget, the Gutenberg block, the shortcode [sc_msls] and/or a content_filter which displays a hint to the user if a translation is available
  • find also a shortcode for the widget [sc_msls_widget]
  • optionally you can place the code <?php if ( function_exists( 'the_msls' ) ) the_msls(); ?> directly in your theme files

Review the Multisite Language Switcher Website for more information.


I have no language options in the General settings.

You might read first WordPress in your language.

But I’d like the interface to stay in English.

You can choose the language of the dashboard in the settings of your user profile.

Do I really need a multisite?

It’s up to you – of course. But yes, if you want to use the Multisite Language Switcher.

How can I automatically redirect users based on the browser language?

Le commutateur de langue multisite ne redirige pas automatiquement les utilisateurs. Je ne sais pas si l’extension devrait le faire. Vous devriez vérifier cette extension jQuery ou cette approche avec un thème
Si vous avez besoin d’une telle fonctionnalité.

How can I add the Multisite Language Switcher to the nav-menu of my blog?

Veuillez vérifier le module MslsMenu.

I want to have the languages in an HTML select. How can I do that?

Veuillez vérifier le module MslsSelect out.

I don’t want to upload the same media files for every site. What can I do?

Vous pouvez essayer l’extension Network Shared Media. Cela ajoute un nouvel onglet à la fenêtre « Ajouter un média », vous permettant d’accéder aux fichiers média dans les autres sites de votre multisite.

Is there a function I can call to get the language of the page the user is currently viewing?

Yes, you should use the WordPress API function get_locale() but you could also use code like that

use lloc\Msls\MslsBlogCollection;

$blog     = MslsBlogCollection::instance()->get_current_blog();
$language = $blog->get_language();

How can I move from WPML to MSLS?

Il y a une extension qui est bien pratique ici.

This simple yet amazing plugin is a must-have for any multilingual WordPress multisite. It's so easy to use, and provides me with everything that I need in just one plugin! Thank you!

Great plugin, does what it says it does. For MultilingualPress users: you can switch to this plugin without any problems. Be sure to read the documentation before you start. Another plugin from the same developer can be very useful for putting the language selector in your menu. See mslsmenu plugin Thanks Dennis

I have been using this plugin in combination with MslsMenu for more than 7 years now. For me this is a simple, yet absolutely perfect solution for any multilingual WordPress site. Very easy to use. Easily linking cross-blog pages together without having to worry about any third-party plugin compatibility. Its simplicity allows website admins full control over the content of each individual blog. Perfect if not all your blogs offer the exact same content, like country-restricted services such as gift cards or house calls or payment methods. WordPress MultiSite handles all settings per blog and with MultiSite Language Switcher you can use different date/time formatting, even different email addresses, etc. tailored to the blog's locale. Thank you very much for providing the perfect solution, Dennis!

Literally the only tool, that allows for implementing proper hreflangs in all posts, pages, tags and categories. Language selector block and menu from the other addons are great as well. The only thing that seems not to be doing anything is "available translations hints" option, but still it's a 5 star plugin.

Connects my 2 sites perfectly and quickly. It was super easy to install and the font type and font colour and flags can be all customised. The support I got was also amazing.
