guideSetting Up WordPress RSS Feeds with Language Specific Settings for TCE ingressing

As a content publisher or seller on the TCE platform using WordPress, you may be ingressing content through an RSS feed. This guide will help you set up your RSS feed with language-specific settings.

Setting the correct language for your content helps the TCE platform in auto-translation of content items, making it easier for the content to be consumed by a wider audience. Additionally, users seeking content in a specific language can easily find your content if it's correctly tagged with that language.

How to Set Up Language Specific Settings for Your RSS Feed

Follow these steps to set the language of your RSS feed:

  1. Log in to your WordPress dashboard: Access your admin page, typically located at (replace "" with your actual website URL).
  2. Change Site Language: Navigate to Settings, then select General.
  3. Select Your Site Language: On the General Settings page, find the Site Language dropdown menu. Select the appropriate language for your content.
  4. Save Your Changes: Scroll to the bottom of the page and click Save Changes.

This will change the language for your entire WordPress website, including the admin interface and all content, including your RSS feed.

If you want to keep a different language for your website while having your RSS feed in a specific language, consider using a plugin like "Admin Language Per User". This will allow you to keep the admin interface in one language, while the website and RSS feed are in another.

What if Changing the Site Language Does Not Affect the RSS Feed?

In some cases, changing the site language might not affect the RSS feed due to certain themes or plugins overriding these settings. In such scenarios, you need to change the RSS feed language specifically. This can be done by adding custom code to the functions.php file in your theme.

Follow these steps to change the RSS feed language specifically:

  1. Access the functions.php File: Navigate to Appearance, then Theme Editor. On the right-hand side, find the list of theme files. Click on functions.php.
  2. Insert the Custom Function: At the end of the functions.php file, add the following code:
function change_rss_language( $rss_language ) {
  return 'de';
add_filter( 'rss_language', 'change_rss_language' );

This code will change your RSS feed language to German (de). If your content is in another language, replace 'de' with the appropriate language code.

  1. Update the File: Finally, click on Update File. This change will be immediately reflected in your RSS feed.

Please note that editing theme files should only be done by experienced users or professionals, as errors in theme files can cause issues with your site. Always back up your website before making changes to theme files. If you're not comfortable doing this, consult with a professional.


Correct language settings play a crucial role in reaching your desired audience, enhancing the overall accessibility of your content, and aiding in auto-translation. Whether you're changing the language settings for your entire WordPress site or just the RSS feed, following the correct procedure will ensure your content is tagged with the appropriate language and reaches the right audience. Happy publishing!
