Translation Management Features
Single-screen translation status
WPML makes it easy for site Admins to stay on top of translation status. The Translation Dashboard shows all documents in your site. This includes posts, pages and any custom types you’re using.
From that single screen, you can view the current status of translations and send documents to your translators.
Choose the documents to translate, to which languages and by who. WPML will put the documents into the translation queue and notify the translators.
Email Notifications to Translators and Admins
When you send jobs to translation, WPML notifies your translators. They receive emails that tell them what you’ve sent and can jump right in to the translation work.
You choose how to receive notifications about completed work.
WPML can notify you about each completed translation as it happens, or send a daily digest with the summary of all the work that completed.
Individual Work Queues for Translators
Each of your translators will see only jobs that you assigned to him / her.
Translators don’t need to search for what needs translation. They also can’t pick for themselves content in your site and edit it. They can only translate the jobs that you assign to them.
Powerful Translation Editor
Translators can have any type of account, including Subscriber. They translate using WPML’s Translation Editor. The same editor is used for all different content types.
Your translators only need to know how to translate. They don’t need to learn anything about WordPress administration. WPML will automatically take care of all the technical work.
The Translation Editor tells translators what’s changed, so that it’s easier to keep translations up-to-date.
It breaks the document into different fields. WPML shows which fields are complete and which require translation. Additionally, there’s a show changes link for each field, which displays the changes between the last time it was translated.
When translation is complete, WPML creates the content in WordPress and automatically handles everything technical. This includes:
- Inserting pages into the right hierarchy
- Applying tags and categories to posts
- Creating custom fields
- Updating links to other translated pages
