Presented by Shannon Smith at WordCamp Toronto 2012.

About two thirds of the world population speak more than one language and most of the world doesn’t use the Internet in English. This presentation will cover what components are needed for a successful multilingual WordPress site. We’ll compare different set-ups, review key plugins and examine common pitfalls. Then we’ll look at advanced features like e-commerce and email marketing. This presentation will be accessible to anyone with a basic understanding of WordPress. No coding necessary.
