WPML makes it possible for you to translate your site’s content in two different ways:
- The Translate Everything Automatically mode automatically translates your site’s content as you add or edit it.
- The Translate What You Choose mode allows you to control the content you translate, as well as who will translate it.
WPML allows you to translate the metadata of images. This includes the image titles, captions, alt texts, and descriptions. Additionally, you can choose to show different images for content in different languages. You can learn more by checking out our guide to translating images using Media Translation.
