By default, WordPress comes with two basic types of contents, Posts and Pages. These are called post types. However, many sites also feature custom post types. For example, a site could have Tours, Articles, or Book post types. WPML allows you to translate these custom post types easily.

To be able to translate custom post types, you need to set them as “translatable” in WPML. There are two ways of doing this.

When editing the contents, in the “Multilingual Content Setup” section. By going to the “WPML” -> “Translation Management” page, clicking on the “Multilingual Content Setup” tab, and scrolling to the “Custom posts” section.

After your custom post types have been set to Translate, the posts belonging to them will appear on the Translation Dashboard and you can send them for translation or translate them manually.
