WPML’s pricing for automatic translation is affordable for websites of any size and language. Whether it’s a one-page website or an enterprise site with millions of words, automatic translation will save you time and money.

10,000 words per month is free

As long as your WPML subscription is valid you can claim 10,000 words of automatic translation for free each month. You can claim this free amount of words without creating an additional account for automatic translation.

Need more than 10,000 words per month?

If you need more than 10,000 words per month, create an account for automatic translation. You will get an additional 2,000 free words per month.

If you spend more than 12,000 words per month, we will charge you according to the following pricing table. Please note that the table doesn’t include the 10,000 free words.

How you pay for the words you use

You are charged based on the actual number of words you use in each calendar month. This means that when you set up your payment, we will not charge you yet. On the 3rd of each month, we will charge you for the previous calendar month’s usage.

If you use less than 2,000 words in a given month, you will not pay anything for that month. The free 2,000 words amount resets at the start of each month.

To make sure you don’t exceed your preferred budget, you can set a limit for monthly payments.

Setting up your payment plan for automatic translation

Go to the WPMLTranslation Management page, click the Translation Tools tab and then click the Get more words button at the top-right.
