We’ll leave it in English, as this post is already in English. But you can choose whatever language you want.
What is more, you can set what languages you want to add to your site. Don’t worry, this is not the whole list, just an excerpt. You will find more languages when you actually install the plugin. Let’s choose for this example German and French. You can always update this list. After selecting the languages, click on “Next”.
Here is the Language Switcher. First you have to select the order of languages, which can be any of your choice. Also choose how to handle languages without translation: you can either skip the language or link to home of language for the missing translations.
From here, you can add the menu/ widget language switcher. You can also add the switcher in the footer. This one is actually recommended.
Nevertheless, you can add links to the translation of posts by checking the above button.
This one is really up to you. If you want to help them improve the plugin, you should check the first option. If you simply don’t want to allow them collecting your data, you can do so by clicking the second option.
You have to enter the registration key at the end or generate a key for your site if you want automatic updates. You can also click on “Remind me later” and enter that key later.
