I am working on my own translator website, just a basic 'Home / Services / About Me / Contact' layout, on Wordpress. I am now trying to choose a theme within the pre-designed Wordpress ones, but there are simple too many to choose from. And so I am asking you, my fellow translators: have you got any experience with Wordpress themes for translator websites? Which ones do you recommend? Thank you in advance!

Make sure it adjusts itself to a device Apr 22, 2015

Hi Elisa,

Choice largely depends on what you like, however I would suggest that you choose a theme which is lightweight and automatically adjusts the display to the device used by the visitor. I am quite happy with theme Responsive - http://demos.cyberchimps.com/responsivepro/

Best Regards
Stanislaw

I am working with Enfold Apr 23, 2015

Hi Elisa,

I have tried several themes for free, but they didn't work for me.
I then purchased Avada, that is very popular, but it was not intuitive enough for me.

Finally I purchased Enfold, that I can highly recommend. You can check my website www.culturing.de that is made with Enfold. There is wonderful support if you have any issue and it is really easy to handle.

Claudia

Twenty Thirteen Apr 23, 2015

I use the Twenty Thirteen theme for my website.
It was recommended in a webinar by the Alexandria Project: https://alexandria-translation-resources.com/product/using-wordpress-com-to-build-your-translators-website/

Thanks for the input Apr 23, 2015

I think one of the 'twenties' should work for now so I'll definitely check Twenty Thirteen. I'm going for simple and clean at the moment as I want to launch as soon as possible.
Thank you everybody!

Go for any lightweight & responsive theme Jul 21, 2015

Hello Elisa,
I also agree with Stanislaw, as he suggested to go with lightweight and automatically adjustable theme. It will help your visitors to access the website easily, even at low internet speed and any device. You can have a look at http://awesome4wp.com/category/wordpress_themes/responsive/ at least once, as it is one of the most reliable theme providers in my sight. Apart from this, themeforest, themes2wp, mafiashare, etc. are also most prominent for it.

Great Website Jul 30, 2015

Elisa,

I'm considering a website for my business, also. Thanks for posting your question and for the many responses. I am also leaning toward SELA as the theme for my website. Yours looks great.
