SrbTransLatin: The only WordPress transliteration plugin
SrbTransLatin enables you to have both cyrillic and latin scripts on your website. Transliteration is done in-place automatically.
If your content is written in cyrillic script, this plugin will allow your visitors to view the content both in cyrillic and latin scripts.
This plugin also fixes searching cyrillic posts using latin script.
- Works everywhere – Plugin hooks into WordPress core transliterating your content inplace
- Auto-Fix permalinks – Your cyrillic permalinks will be automatically saved as latin (optional)
- SEARCH FIX – Search posts written in cyrillic script using both latin and cyrillic script
- Partial transliteration – You can selectively choose which parts of your website to keep in cyrilic
- Widget Ready – Switch script via sidebar widget
- Ajax Transliteration – Transliterates dynamic parts of your website
- SEO Friendly – no double content or SERP penalties!
- Lightweight – Plugin does not use any external stylesheets, or js files.
- WPML Compatible – Fully compatible with WPML. Transliteration only works when Serbian language is active
- Polylang compatible – Fully compatible with Polylang. Transliteration only works when Serbian language is active
- Script / Language selector – Integrates into WPML language selectors in menu / widget

Can I use your plugin to transliterate my latin content into cyrillic?
Short answer: No.
Long Answer: At the moment, no. Such conversions are very hard to do since HTML language is also written in latin script, and converting text only is very resource intensive process.
I’m currently working on a tool which will enable you to convert your latin content into cyrillic
How can I keep parts of content in cyrilic?
You can use [stl_cyr][/stl_cyr] shortcode. This will keep the shortcode text in cyrilic script, even when viewing latin version of the site.
Will this plugin transliterate my page title into latin as well?
Yes, it will.
Will this plugin enable my visitors to search for content using latin script
Yes it will. Plugin hooks into default WordPress search function and enables searching of cyrilic content using latin text on frontend
Is this plugin Compatible with WPML
Yes it is. It has no compatibility issues with WPML, since the transliteration core is being used only in serbian version of the website
Will I be able to select script for Serbian language in WPML language Widget?
Yes, Plugin fully integrates with all WPML functions on the frontend because it directly extends the available language list
I’m having search issues – not all posts show up when searching for them using latin characters
Open a support thread, or send me an e-mail.
Your plugin is converting my cyrilic filenames into latin which prevents them from loading
First – you shouldn’t be using cyrilic filenames in the first place. Due to the fact that most hosting providers do not have full UTF-8 support.
I’m working on a tool which will convert filenames and post / page content on your website, so the errors will be automagically fixed
Temporary fix: redownload all attachments with cyrilic filenames and reupload them. This plugin will do an on-the-fly conversion of filenames.
Will this plugin transliterate dynamic content (ajax)
Yes it will. Option was added in version 2.4
Some parts of my page aren’t being transliterated
Depending on the theme / plugins you’re currently using, some content might be generated via REST API (wp-json). I’m working on adding the functionality to transliterate REST calls
Feel free to contact me via e-mail, and I’ll see if I can assist you for your specific case.
