I am running WordPress with "WPML Multilingual CMS", so that it has multiple language versions.

In a function used with add_action('template_redirect',<functionname>), I need to find out what the current language is.

What should I call?

  • Used multi-language because that's was already used and multilingual was not. – MikeSchinkel Aug 23 '10 at 19:38
  • Hi, @MikeSchinkel, I retagged this as <3.0> seems a meaningless tag... Also, I guess our comments became noise, I suggest removing both ;) – brasofilo Dec 26 '12 at 0:51

I have no experience with the plugin whatsoever, but from a quick scout of their site, it looks like:


will give you the current language. Worth a try, anyway!

  • Works great! Thanx. – naugtur Aug 23 '10 at 11:30

Try this one, it worked very fine with me.
