Export your multilingual websites translated with WPML quickly and easily using WP All Export and the WPML Export and Import add-on.

When you create an export file with WP All Export for your site’s multilingual content, the WPML Export and Import add-on automatically adds language information to this file. This means you get one file for each type of content you export, regardless of the number of languages on your site.
