Blogging software is built for people to communicate amazing things to many people – but not always in english. How often do we forget that there are more languages than just my own?
I believe it’s part of our responsibility to make our products, our WordPress themes and plugins, multi-lingual compatible. If not out of the gate but that you’re definitely thinking in that direction long-term.
Now, not everyone is crazy-in-love with the WPML plugin as there are other options as well but I think this is a strategic and wise move for Elegant Themes, especially because it’s been requested a number of times via their own support forums:
We noticed the request for WPML compatibility gaining traction in our Theme Suggestions forums, and I’m glad that we were able to satisfy the request! If you are looking for certain features to be added to our themes, don’t forget to post a suggestion in the member forums.
Have you considered moving toward a compatible theme base with a multi-lingual in mind? Where do you stand on building products with this inside?
