How can I exclude some parts from being translated?
You should go to:
Advanced > General > Exclude selector (jQuery)
Enter a jQuery selector to specify the area(s) you’d like to exclude from translation.
Alternatively, you can add the notranslate style class to the container HTML element. Or if you want to exclude just a piece of text, you should wrap it within a HTML element with the notranslate style class, for instance:
<span class="notranslate">Company name</span>
I have a lot of plugins, will this plugin slow down my website?
This plugin has a lot of options for you to customize it in the best possible way. All these options are saved in only one database record (yes, only one!). So you can rest assured it won’t slow down your website. Sometimes your website slows down when you use more and more plugins, because most likely they haven’t been built carefully. If you have some understanding of code, you can search for the add_option function within your plugins files to check on this matter.
Google translate is not free, do I need to pay any money to use this plugin?
No, you don’t need to pay anything. Even though Google translate isn’t free anymore, Google has created a free translation widget for everybody to use. This plugin brings you that widget for you to easily use it in your WordPress powered website.
