We will charge you a small fee, as a general rule, for every translation delivered from your service to a client’s website.

We will charge a commission only in cases where the client has no working relationship with your service (clients who found you based on our recommendation). If the client buys WPML after already working with the translation service, we will not charge any commission. This includes all projects coming from that client on any website.

How do we distinguish which clients come from your recommendation?

There is a simple solution for this. Every time you advertise and recommend WPML to your clients, you need to add a tsid parameter to all links pointing to wpml.org pages. We will give you your unique tsid right after completing the integration with your service.

Here are two URL examples you could use:



Based on this tsid param, wpml.org sets a ninety-day cookie to mark the user as your referral. If during those three months the user buys a WPML license, wpml.org will assign your service to that client’s account. Based on that information we will know that we should not charge you any fee for the translations delivered from your system to that client’s website.

What happens with your Translation Service clients that already have a WPML account?

If you know that a given client has bought WPML based on your recommendation, please send us their email address or WPML login names (not passwords) and we will mark them manually in our system as your referrals.

Translation Services visibility in WPML

For all clients marked in our system as your referrals, only your service will be visible in the Translators tab in WPML. This way, WPML won’t advertise competing translation services to your clients.
