Sending Documents to Translation
To send documents to translation, first you need to set up professional translation.
Then, there are two options for sending contents for translation:
- The translation dashboard – provides an overview of the translation status of all contents your site.
- Translation controls from each edit screen.
Using the translation dashboard
The translation dashboard shows the translation status of any document in your site.
To send documents to translation, click on the checkbox next to them.
The bottom of the table provides a cost calculation, showing the cost of translating the documents you’ve selected.
Then, choose which languages to translate to and click on Translation selected documents.
Adding notes for translation
You can click on the ‘+’ sign next to each document in the notes column to add a note to the translators.
These notes are useful for giving specific instructions per document.
Communicating with the translators
When documents are being translated, you can view their progress and chat with the translator. Click on the translation status (which becomes a link). You’ll see the name of the translator and the current translation status. Click again on the translator to open a chat.
Using the edit pages
Each edit page (for posts and pages) also includes individual professional translation controls.
Click on the button to send to translate by ICanLocalize to send just the current document to translation.
You can also include a note for the translators directly from the edit pages.
