OrdaSoft Joomla Translate

OrdaSoft Joomla Translate is a Search Engine Friendly Joomla Translate (SEF Translate) component and module designed to easily translate Joomla websites. With the power of Google Translate, Bing Translate, and Yandex Translate APIs, Joomla Translate ensures your website is accessible in multiple languages, enhancing visibility and ranking across diverse markets. Our Joomla Translate not only translates 98% of Joomla website content (including website content, iFrames, URLs, and metadata) but also adds chosen languages to the website's sitemap, improving the visibility and ranking of translated content in search engines in other languages (SEO feature).

Auto translation into 120+ languages

Bing/Microsoft Translator supports 50 languages, covering more than 95% of the worldwide gross domestic product (GDP). Additionally, Microsoft Translator provides a free quota of up to 2 million characters per month. Google Translate supports over 120 languages but offers only paid automatic translation services.

Google Translate & Bing Translate & Yandex Translate

Choose Translate API that best fits your needs - Google Translate API, Bing Translate API (Microsoft Translate API, Azura Translate API), or Yandex Translate API. The difference lies in the number of translated languages, translation methods, and translation pricing. Unlike Google Translate, Bing Translator provides a free quota (up to 2,000,000 Characters/month), allowing you to test it before purchase. Currently, Bing/Microsoft/Azura Translate supports 90+ languages, compared to Google Translate, which offers translations in over 120 languages. If your Joomla website's main language is Russian or falls within the Slavic language group, Yandex Translate API is recommended.

Edit translated pages & URLs

SEO and SEF features

SEO and SEF features in Joomla Translate

SEO: Search Engine Optimization. In OrdaSoft Joomla Translate, you can edit any text after translation. We translate HTML meta tags, alt attributes, placeholders, and titles, ensuring full SEO support for your site.

SEF: Search Engine Friendly. We translate your URLs, allowing you to edit them to meet SEF requirements.

The Sitemap feature is essential for communication with search engines. Adding new languages to the Sitemap improves the visibility of translated pages by search engines and speeds up their indexing. Joomla Translate enables you to add as many languages to your website's Sitemap as you want. Additionally, you can create Sitemaps in HTML (for your clients) and XML (for SEO in Google, MSN, Yahoo, Yandex).

Another notable feature of Joomla Translate is the translation of URLs and meta tags. For example, meta descriptions in other languages will be displayed in the search snippet of that language, potentially increasing the click-through rate of foreign searchers to your page.

2 levels of cache

Joomla Translate has 2 levels of cache:

  • 1. Cache for translated phrases: Every translated phrase is saved to cache. When we receive the same phrase for translation again, we retrieve it from the cache, saving time on re-translation.
  • 2. Cache for translated pages: Every page, when translated for the first time, is saved to cache. Subsequently, we serve this page from cache, saving time on re-translation.

Joomla Translate saves your money

Joomla Translate save your money

By purchasing the Pro or Commerce version of Joomla Translate, you pay once and use it as long as you wish. The cache feature not only speeds up your website but also helps you save money. Once you translate a phrase, it is saved in the cache, eliminating the need for re-translation and saving your translation quota. After translating your site once, you will only use your translation quota for new pages.
