This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.


Converts Cyrillic and Georgian characters in post, page and term slugs to Latin characters. Useful for creating human-readable URLs.

This plugin is a fork of cyr2lat plugin.


  • Automatically converts existing post, page and term slugs on activation
  • Saves existing post and page permalinks integrity
  • Performs transliteration of attachment file names
  • Includes Russian, Belarusian, Ukrainian, Bulgarian and Macedonian characters
  • Transliteration table can be customized without editing the plugin itself

Based on the original Rus-To-Lat plugin by Anton Skorobogatov.


  1. Upload cyr3lat folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
  3. Make sure your system has iconv set up right, or iconv is not installed at all. If you have any problems (trimmed slugs, strange characters, question marks) – please ask for support.


How can I define my own substitutions?

Add this code to your theme’s functions.php file:

function my_cyr_to_lat_table($ctl_table) {
   $ctl_table['Ъ'] = 'U';
   $ctl_table['ъ'] = 'u';
   return $ctl_table;
add_filter('ctl_table', 'my_cyr_to_lat_table');

Works well on any website I’ve uploaded to – maybe more than 30-40! Never caused me problems. Thank you!

Сначала выдал ошибку: Fatal error: Cannot redeclare ctl_sanitize_title() (previously declared in /home/**/wp-content/plugins/cyr2lat/cyr-to-lat.php:11) in /home/**/wp-content/plugins/cyr3lat/cyr-to-lat.php on line 84 Понял, что был активирован cyr to lat обычный. Его отключил – всё работает. Буду тестировать.

Самая отягощающая проблема, это отсутсвие редиректа с бывших кириллических страниц на новые. А этих страниц оказывается очень много.

Не рекомендую к установке, полгода боролся с вирусами на сайте, оказалось что это плагин старый и дырявый. Я не говорю что в данном плагине вирусы, я о том что в нем имеются уязвимости.
