How to Translate Your TheFour-themed Site Using Weglot

There are a lot of WordPress themes you can choose from. However, if you’re looking for an option that’s perfect for modern businesses, you can’t go wrong with TheFour. That’s especially true if you want to create a multilingual website.

TheFour is a premium theme from GretaThemes, which is both easy to customize and blazing fast. Plus, it’s responsive out of the box, so your site will look just right on mobile devices. Best of all, this theme is seamlessly compatible with Weglot, which means you can translate your website into other languages in just minutes.

In this article, we’ll tell you a bit more about how TheFour integrates with Weglot, and why that matters. Then we’ll show you how to translate your website using these two tools. Let’s jump right in!

Why Using TheFour With Weglot Can Benefit Your Business

Ultimately, you want your website to reach the widest possible audience. However, it’s hard to do that when you only offer content in one language.

If your site is in English, for example, you can get access to over 400 million potential visitors by simply adding a Spanish translation. We’re not saying that every native Spanish speaker will visit your site, of course, but the odds are that few of them will if you do offer content in their language.

Translating your site by hand can be very challenging, and hiring out is expensive. Fortunately, there are tools that can help. First of all, using the right WordPress theme makes the entire translation process much simpler.

TheFour is a perfect example, as a well-optimized theme that’s just ready and waiting to be made multilingual:

Of course, you’ll also need a translation plugin. With Weglot, you get access to powerful features such as:

  • Quick translations of your entire website. All you have to do is pick your desired languages, and watch the plugin work its magic.
  • A dashboard where you can make manual modifications. If you want to tweak the resulting translations, you have full control over your content from a centralized dashboard.
  • Built-in Search Engine Optimization (SEO). Weglot was built with SEO in mind, so the translated versions of your website will do well in search rankings.

With the combination of TheFour and Weglot, you’ll have everything you need to build a great-looking multilingual site. On top of that, both tools come with plenty of dedicated support. That means if you run into any issues, you’ll be able to get expert advice on how to solve them.

If there’s any part of the translation that you want to change, you can easily do so from your Weglot dashboard. You can even get in touch with professional translators to review your content, if you want to ensure complete accuracy or use a specific tone for your brand.

Keep in mind that you can add more languages to your TheFour-themed website, depending on which Weglot plan you sign up for. On the basic tier, you’ll get to translate your site into one other language, while higher tiers offer unlimited language options.
