Guest Post: A Complete Guide to Using the Weglot Multilanguage Plugin with GravityView
In this post, you’ll learn how to add multilanguage support for your site content, including any Views that you’ve created with GravityView.
Why You Need a Multilanguage WordPress plugin
In this increasingly global world, a multilanguage WordPress plugin and website can help you from two different angles.
First, because most websites now have a multilingual audience (even those targeting specific geographic areas), going multilingual helps you create a happier audience (more on this in a second).
Second, because people are searching in Google using all different languages, a multilanguage WordPress plugin can also help you reach more visitors by increasing your site’s visibility in Google search.
Let’s break those benefits down with some real data…
Version 1.20: Edit Product & Pricing Fields
Edit existing entry in Gravity Forms
Gravity Forms doesn’t allow you to edit any order information (product options, or quanity, for example). If you try, you’ll see “Product fields are not editable”. This is a problem for many of our customers—there are valid reasons to edit this information.
With Version 1.20, GravityView now makes it possible to edit order details for existing entries. It includes support for the Gravity Forms Coupon addon, so you can even add or remove coupons.
GravityView’s frontend Edit Entry feature now supports editing content for all Gravity Forms field types! 💯
Note: Sometimes editing purchase details is disabled by default, but you can override that. Read more about it.
Improved WPML (a translation plugin) support
We want to make sure GravityView works well in all languages, and in Version 1.20, we improved compatibility with WPML links when using different WPML URL formats.
Next up: we’re going to improve translations for drop-down fields in the Search Bar.
Was editing an entry logging you out? That’s fixed.
There was an annoying bug with Edit Entry. You could be logged out when editing an entry, if the entry was from a form connected to the Gravity Forms User Registration Addon and there was a “Create User” feed for the form. It only affected a few of our customers, but it was very annoying. We’ve fixed the issue, and we’re glad to see it gone!

Translation icon from Wikimedia
With this release, we fixed a bug in the
shortcode. The shortcode wasn’t properly handling situations where the
if value was empty.
We’re starting to pay for translations instead of relying solely on user translation submissions. This should mean that in a week or two, we’ll be fully translated in German ?? and French ??!
As always, it’s available via auto-update for users with an active license, and you can also download the update on your GravityView Account page.
