Take your WordPress website worldwide with Babble: the free, open-source translation framework built with VIPs in mind.

Core compatible

Babble is based on familiar functions like custom post types, for maximum performance with minimum overhead.

Optimised interface

Babble puts everything a translator needs on the same screen, side by side. And because it's core WordPress, there's nothing new to learn.

Everything flows

Babble tells your translators when a post is ready for their attention. And when the original is published, so are the translations.

Faster sites, fewer queries

Babble was designed with performance in mind. In cold-cache tests it generates pages 20% faster than the leading premium plugin, and 40% fewer queries.

Languages without limits

Babble lets you run your website in as many languages as you want. Any script, any direction, no problem.

A team you can trust

Babble's lead developers are active contributors to the WordPress core platform. If you use WordPress, you're already using their code.
