GTranslate took the management of Google Language Translator. What to expect?

To all Google Language Translator Users: Welcome to GTranslate!

As the founder of Google Language Translator Rob Myrick announced nearly a week ago, Google Language Translator is now a part of GTranslate family. Before talking about what this basically means for you, let's briefly describe what are the core differences and similarities of two plugins.

Google Language Translator and GTranslate

Both are multilingual plugins which help to instantly make your websites multilingual and both are easy to install and use.

Google Language Translator works like GTranslate's free plan. They both provide on-fly translation of your website through Google's machine translation: the website is being translated only when your visitor selects a language. The only difference here is in the design and default options to post Language Selectors on your website.

What is the Best CMS Platform For Your Website?

Launching a website has become as easy as one-two-three in 2019. You don't have to possess any programming background or coding skills in order to create a nice website. Why? Because you can use one of the best CMS platforms (content management system) that will basically allow creating, editing, and publishing web content including text and multimedia elements via a graphical user interface.

CMS is software that works magic!

Considering that there are nearly 2B websites live now and also considering the fact that this number is growing rapidly, it's obvious that one needs to hurry up if they really want to have a website for their business or personal purposes.

Hiring a programmer to build a website for you could be awesome, but it could also take a lot of time and money. So, a CMS is what will come to your rescue if you want to cut costs and make it quick. There are various types of CMS platforms, and the bad news is that they all have some advantages and disadvantages, and you will have to consider all the pros and cons before making a choice.

There are a few things you should take into account in order to find the best CMS platform for your needs, for example, the need to access the editor with multiple user accounts, or the need to present the content in more than one language.

Some of the best CMS platforms are the following:

  • WordPress
  • Joomla!
  • Squarespace
  • Shopify
  • Blogger
  • TYPO3
  • Drupal
  • Magento

The majority of websites on the web are built on WordPress. That number is around 18 million!

Let's now discuss a few of the most popular CMS platforms one by one and see what each of them is best for.
