I have a project in which the client needs the site to support 5 different languages. After some research on Google and here, it's clear the two ways to do it would be either using Multilingual plugins or Multi-site.
My question is, if I were to use the wordpress plugins such as qTranslate, how would the other plugins work, i.e slideshows, testimonials etc. For example, most of the slideshow plugins comes with only a single title fields. In that sense, is using plugins for the translation still efficient keeping in mind that I am going to be using sidebars and other plugins which don't support multingual? Or using the Multi-site is the only option?
