Why is language recognition important? 

SEO tools focus heavily on language. To optimize your content, you need keyphrase analysis, and there is also a ton that goes into readability. Of course, each language is unique, so the analysis needs to be tailored to each language’s specifics. With Yoast SEO, you can be sure that you have all the essential SEO aspects covered, even if your primary language is not English. 

✅ Rank high in the search results with your chosen keyphrase

Users search for keyphrases in Google. Your content needs to be the best result for that keyphrase in order to rank. Of course, it’s not as simple as just using that keyphrase. To rank, you need to place it in all the right spots through the text, and for instance, be careful not to use too much or too little of it. Yoast SEO helps you by analyzing your keyphrase use. The best part? The plugin can do that in almost any language! Yoast SEO can even recognize your keyphrase in two right-to-left languages: Arabic, Hebrew, and Farsi!

Available in: All left-to-right languages, as well as Arabic,  Hebrew, and Farsi (Persian).

✅ Make your texts engaging and more natural with different forms of your keyword 

Yoast SEO Premium supports word form recognition in various languages. That means that Yoast SEO can recognize your keyword’s singular and plural forms (example: cookie, cookies). It also recognizes different forms of words (bake, baking, baked, bakes). That is important because it allows you to write engaging texts for your audience. Search engines also appreciate it a lot if you don’t over-optimize for just one form of your keyword.

✔ Available in: US English English English, German German, Dutch Dutch, Spanish Spanish, French French, Russian Russian, Italian Italian, Indonesian Indonesian, and Portuguese Portuguese Polish Polish, Swedish Swedish, Norwegian, Hebrew, and Arabic.

✅ Write readable texts that both your audience and search engines appreciate

Easy to read texts can be hard to write. That’s why it’s good to have a helping hand. Yoast SEO analyzes the readability of your texts by looking at transition words, use of passive voice, reading ease (with the Flesch reading ease score), sentence length, and sentence beginnings. When all of these aspects are done right, you get smoothly readable texts. You don’t have to wonder if your text is clear and readable. We give you the feedback, so you know right away! 

✔ Available in: US English English English, German German, Dutch Dutch, Spanish Spanish, French French, Russian Russian, Italian Italian, Indonesian Indonesian, and Portuguese Portuguese Hebrew, and Arabic. For Hebrew, Polish, Swedish, and Arabic we currently do not analyze the Flesch reading ease score.
The feature available for 🇭🇺 Hungarian is the transition words analysis. 

Words make up your texts and help people and search engines understand their topic. They also help Yoast SEO Premium analyze your content and determine how posts, pages, categories, and tags related to each other. With our state-of-the-art internal linking tool, you can easily link your related posts and pages and do wonders for your site structure, so all your pages end up in the search engines
