BuddyPress Multilingual


The plugin allows building multilingual BuddyPress sites with WPML. It works with single-site or multi-site BuddyPress installations. Both the main site and child blogs can run multilingual.

Guest blogs can choose their language and create multilingual contents. Additionally, each guest can choose the admin language individually .


  • WPML 3.6.x or higher. You must enable ‘languages per directories’ or ‘languages per domain’.
  • Tested up to BuddyPress 6.3.0


  • Adds language switching to all BuddyPress pages (Activity, Groups, Profile and Register page)
  • Allows to select the language when viewing user profiles
  • Keeps the language consistent when clicking on different links (by adding the language to links)
  • Allows to translate email notifications
  • Keeps the entire BuddyPress workflow in the current language (create group, change avatars etc.)

Need Support?

Please submit support requests to WPML forum. Remember to report:

  • The versions of BuddyPress, WPML and WordPress that you’re using.
  • A URL to your site, where we can see the problem happening.
  • A description of what you expect to see and what you’re seeing in practice.

  • Language switcher in the navigation
  • Message in other language
  • Activity stream
  • Profile


  1. Unzip and upload contents of buddypress-multilingual.zip file to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Activate the plugin.
  3. Enable WPML and BuddyPress.


Why cannot I use language as parameter?

Support for language as parameter will not be added soon as we’re looking for solutions other than filtering all kinds of BuddyPress navigation and action links.

The Plugin is good but when you have to manage multilingual site you need also email translations and the users to receive emails in own language. This is not the case, emails are not sent in proper language. More, the way buddypress manage emails is very confused and the subject and body of the emails are slitted in the Email post type and strings in the code, that cause a big confusione and a lot of work. Af for my knowledge the problem start with the bad way Buddypress manage emails, and this plugin cìis not a solution to have emails translated. I tried have some answer in the support forum but no way. Other point is that emails are already translated in the langua package of buddypress, but with this plugin you can't use the translations but you have to translate each email by yourself.

I don't know why there are so few reviews for this plugin. It is very useful and looks like the only plugin for WPML+BP. The only problem is there could be bug on custom profile field page. Language tabs are not showing on my site. I hope it can be fixed in the next version. Anyway I will give 5 stars for this plugin. Thanks for your great work!!!
