Wordpress multi-language plug-in available..

I am developing a Wordpress blog for a local charity and I would like it to be multilingual as far as menus etc are concerned , allow posting in any language, but show posts and comments in all languages irrespective of the chosen menu language - can anyone recommend a suitable plug-in or have any other advice as to how to accomplish this?

I'm proficient in PHP but fairly new to Wordpress.

Your best option may be to use WPML. It translates to more than 40 languages and translates the output of plugins:

The free version with less options is qTranslate:

Thanks, I tried qTranslate but it seemed to garble the posts unfortunately .. also the Page Titles aren't translated .. I then tried xTranslate which is simpler and doesn't garble the posts but similarly is picky about what it translates e.g. in the post footer it translates the date, as it does the calendar widget, but not 'edit this post' nor the 'Last Posts' title in the last posts widget .. how do these plug-ins decide what to translate? - then perhaps I can amend the code so that I get everything I want translated?

I'm using the Atahualpa theme.

To answer your question I would have to read the plug-in FAQ's, and the documentation. This is what I recommend you do. If you have any questions during the process of configuring the plug-in after you read the documentation, let me know. Depending on the amount of time you have to complete this task, it might be beneficial to go with the http://wpml.org/features/ plug-in. The cost is reasonable and you will get support with it.
