WordPress Plugin: Site Language Definition

Site Lan­guage Def­i­n­i­tion is a sim­ple plu­g­in for forc­ing the web brows­er to know what lan­guage your site is in.

Site Lan­guage Def­i­n­i­tion solves a com­mon prob­lem: your web­site is in your cho­sen lan­guage but for some rea­son the brows­er ‘thinks’ it’s in anoth­er lan­guage.

It is par­tic­u­lar­ly com­mon to think that your site is in a dif­fer­ent lan­guage — many Chrome users get mes­sages from Chrome along the lines of, “This site is in Indone­sian. Would you like Chrome to trans­late it?” even when the site does­n’t have a hint of Indone­sian! This has very neg­a­tive SEO ram­i­fi­ca­tions: Google pri­or­i­tizes in its search results sites that it knows are in the user’s lan­guage.

Site Lan­guage Def­i­n­i­tion plu­g­ins adds the nec­es­sary lan­guage attrib­ut­es to your web­site to force the browsers see the web­site as con­fig­ured under the Word­Press Gen­er­al Set­tings. If you need to change the lan­guage, just go to Set­tings -> Gen­er­al, and change the lan­guage of your web­site.
