The plugin allows building multilingual BuddyPress and BuddyBoss sites with WPML. It works with single-site or multi-site 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 4.5.x or higher. You must enable ‘languages per directories’ or ‘languages per domain’.


  • Adds language switching to all BuddyPress/BuddyBoss 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/BuddyBoss workflow in the current language (create group, change avatars etc.)
