    I would like to suggest a new feature for all WordPress.com users. That feature would be a Translate function that could take a post in any language and translate to the readers own language.

    Hi there,

    Have you looked at our guide on setting up an multilingual blog?

    https://en.support.wordpress.com/set-up-a-multilingual-blog/

    Or are you looking for something more specific to an individual post?

    Hi @darnelldibbles thanks for your suggestions. I have a follower who posts in Russian. I understand there is a Translate plugin but I don’t have or need a Business plan. My idea was along the lines of a button or something to translate the post. @lizkarkoski helpfully suggested that I get the Google Translate browser extension, which works up to a point, but a built-in function would be better.

    At the moment, we don’t have anything for this built-in, except for plugins that would be available under the Business plan.

    Thanks @macmanx. I just posted this as an idea that might be taken up in the future.
