    Installing translation plugin on wordpress: Any checklist and risks?


    Hi,

    We are going to install a translation plugin on our wordpress hosted website. It's going to generate sub directories like website.com/it/ or website.com/fr/. The plugin will create hreflang tags automatically in the pages and canonicals will be pointing to same pages. Is there anything to check before deploying this plugin? We are going to generate more than 30+ languages pages which will increase our website pages to 30 times in Google index.

    Will this dilute the page ranking or have any duplicate content issues?

    Thanks

    Provided your hreflang implementation is done correctly you will have no "duplicate content issues".

    As for dilution of PR, well the more pages you have the more PR you can have. You just have to control the number of links leaving a page. So think your Primary Navigation thru with care.

    Let's just say that your current site has 50 pages. Now you really can't just add 1500 links to inner pages to your main navigation. One possible consideration is... 30 primary menus, one for each language. Keeps the navigation manageable.

    Like I said, give it some serious thought.
    If you have never failed in your life, you have never achieved anything Noteworthy !
