If you have a WPML Multilingual Blog account, you need to use the Plus icons to translate. These icons appear on the listing pages in the admin, and when editing content.

How to Translate Content Using the Plus Icons 

You can translate content using the plus icons in two places: admin screen, or Block Editor. To translate content:

  1. Click the Plus icon for the language you want to translate into.

  1. This opens a blank page. To create a completely different translation, simply add your text on the page. If you want to start with the original content and make edits, click Copy content from [default language].

Looking for Centralized Translation Management and Automatic Translation?

If you have a WPML Multilingual Blog account, you’re missing out on the Translation Management feature. It offers a dashboard where you can handle all your website’s translations:

  • Choose the best translation method for every part of your website
  • Send content for translation
  • Track translation progress across languages

And more.

Upgrading your Multilingual Blog account is easy:

  1. Go to your WPML account and click the Upgrade options link in the sidebar. 
  2. Click whether to upgrade to a Multilingual CMS or Multilingual Agency account. In both cases, you will only pay the price difference between your Multilingual Blog account and the new account type you choose.
