WordPress Development Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for WordPress developers and administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I got a site which is now in English and the site is just static without any dynamic functionality. So, the client wants to frequently edit the site content by its own and he also told me to change the entire site to the Arabic language so I have decided to convert it to wordpress cms to give him editing flexibility.

I have stuck at what should I do to convert the site content into Arabic as far as I know we can implement google translate api or other translation plugins to switch the site language on the go but we all know using such plugins isn't a good choice as sometimes they break words and characters of the language and not work proper as we expect so here I need some appropriate approach to do this task efficiently and effectively.

Many thanks.

Why not use a plugin that allows for you to manually manage the translation? Such as Multilingual Press –  helgatheviking Jul 11 '14 at 1:06
