How to Change the Language on a Wordpress Site to Indonesian / Other Languages

Geekers - In general, Wordpress uses English by default, so at least you have to master passive English to be able to understand the text on the Wordpress site. What is meant by passive English proficiency is the ability to listen to conversations in English and read texts that use English. Meanwhile, active English proficiency is the ability to speak and write in English.


Just to note, the terms active and passive English actually do not really reflect the conditions in the field. The reason is, there are some people who can write in English but can't speak the language fluently because they never use it at all in conversation.



Even those who have mastered English grammar are not necessarily able to read fluently. In reading foreign language texts, besides mastering grammar, vocabulary is also very important. If you are proficient in grammar but still have a small vocabulary, especially vocabulary in the form of terms that are often used in website management, chances are that you will often open a dictionary or Google Translate when editing a website on Wordpress.

For those who are not used to reading text in English, changing the language on the WordPress site can make using the platform easier. However, if you are used to reading text in English, maybe you actually feel that there are strange words when reading the text on the Wordpress site after you change the language to Indonesian. This usually happens when you find an equivalent word that is completely different from the original.


For example, the term feedback to replace the word feedback. Other terms that may also be awkward are posting which replaces the word posting and editing which replaces the word editing. It will take some time to get used to all of these synonyms.


Another thing to note is that there are a number of terms that are still maintained in English even if you have changed the language on the Wordpress site to Indonesian. You can find these terms by browsing the menus in the editor when you are editing a post.
