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 -> Setting page and scrolling to the Post Types Translation section.
After your custom post types have been set to one of the two Translatable options, the posts belonging to them will appear on the Translation Dashboard and you can translate them manually.
