This plugin is made to support all known plugins and visual editors.

We also do special compatible functions with:

YOU NEED TO KNOW that even if there is compatibility for most plugins, the combination of multiple plugins still has a slight chance of some conflict. There are over a couple thousand plugins and a couple of few million individual WordPress installations. We cannot 100% guarantee that everything will work properly in all possible cases. Sometimes it happens that other plugins are not compatible with this plugin, so it is important that you contact us or other plugin authors in case of any problem so that you can solve the problem. The most common fix for most issues is if you keep all the plugins and WordPress installation up to date.


Everything you need to do is to go to Settings->Transliteration and setup plugin according to your needs. Just follow descriptions and you will easily manage it.


This plugin has two shortcodes that work independently of the plugin settings. These two shortcodes aim to transliterate some content. This is great if you have an article and want to display part of the text in Cyrillic, and if your entire portal is displayed in Latin.

Cyrillic to Latin:

[rstr_cyr_to_lat]Ћирилица у латиницу[/rstr_cyr_to_lat]

Latin to Cyrillic:

[rstr_lat_to_cyr]Latinica u ćirilicu[/rstr_lat_to_cyr]

Add an image depending on the language script:
With this shortcode you can manipulate images and display images in Latin or Cyrillic depending on the setup.

[rstr_img lat="YOUR_SITE_URL/logo_latin.jpg" cyr="YOUR_SITE_URL/logo_cyrillic.jpg"]

(The documentation for these shortcodes is inside the plugin settings or see the screenshot.)

Language script menu
This shortcode displays a selector for the transliteration script.


(The documentation for these shortcodes is inside the plugin settings or see the screenshot.)

Permalink Tool

This tool can rename all existing Cyrillic permalinks to Latin inside database. This tool is in the configuration of this plugin.

PHP Functions

We also thought of PHP developers where we have enabled several useful functions that they can use within WordPress themes and plugins. The documentation for these functions is inside the plugin settings.

What is Romanization or Latinisation?

Romanisation or Latinisation, in linguistics, is the conversion of writing from a different writing system to the Roman (Latin) script, or a system for doing so. Methods of romanization include transliteration, for representing written text, and transcription, for representing the spoken word, and combinations of both.

Which Romanization does this plugin support?

This plugin supports several world letters written in Cyrillic and enables their Romanization

  • Romanization of Serbian what include Bosnian and Montenegrin
  • Romanization of Russian
  • Romanization of Belarusian
  • Romanization of Bulgarian
  • Romanization of Macedonian
  • Romanization of Kazakh

Each of these transliterations is created separately and follows the rules of the active language.

Is Latin better for SEO than Cyrillic?

According to Google documentation and discussions on forums and blogs, it is concluded that Latin is much better for SEO and it is necessary to practice Latin at least when permalinks and file names are in Latin, while the text can be in both letters but Latin is always preferred.

Can I translate Cyrillic letters into Latin with this plugin?

YES! Without any problems or conflicts.

Can I translate Latin into Cyrillic with this plugin?

YES! This plugin can translate a Latin site into Cyrillic, but this is not recommended and often causes problems. It is suggested that this approach be approached experimentally.
