  1. Thanks for the tutorial.

    Is it possible to just use one import file? For example an xml file with different child elements for each language.

    And also, using the same taxonomy name across languages are common. Can you come up with a neater solution than having to change names before and after the import?

    • Hi Daniel,

      Sure, you can use the same file to import the content in different languages!

      For example, if the second row is the translation of the first row they both need to have the same “Connector ID”. You also need to add a column that identifies the row language. Simply name it “Language”. When importing the content in the default and secondary you can add a filtering option to import only the rows in a specific language. Yet, it is preferred to use two different files for the imports to avoid any confusions.

      I have passed your request about using the same taxonomy names in different languages to the compatibility development team. They will look into it and get back to you.

    • Daniel, importing terms which translation is the same as original should be possible. Just make sure that before the import you switched the wp-admin language to desired one (switched using top bar menu).

      If it is not working for you, please create the ticket at our forum and we will take a look.
