We just released WPML 3.7.0. This version focuses on making it easier to translate sites built with page builders.
We wrote about the new features in detail in the WPML 3.7.0 beta announcement. To sum up, this version features:
- Ability to update page-builder designs without losing translated strings
- Automatic translation for links in page-builder designs
- Support for Elementor page builder
- Copy-once feature for custom fields
Update your sites
As always, the easiest way to update WPML is automatically. For this, make sure to register your sites. Then, you will receive automatic updates through the WordPress admin. You can always download WPML manually from your account.
There was a little glitch during the first 1/2 hour when WPML 3.7 was released. The ZIP file was missing an XML file needed for automatic updates. If you only got an update for WPML 3.7 but not for the rest of WPML’s components, please download WPML 3.7 manually from your account.
Coming next to WPML
We’re working on a major update for the Media Translation, but this will take us a bit more time to complete (scheduled for WPML 3.9).
The next major release of WPML will include new features to help you achieve better translation. After all, you’re using WPML for multilingual sites, so the quality of the translations matters more than many other things. I’ll write a lot more about this when we’re ready.
