Getting Started

Start by installing and activating the following:

  • All in One SEO Pack Pro
  • WPML core plugin and WPML String Translation add-on
  • WooCommerce Multilingual and Multicurrency (if you are running a WooCommerce site)

If you’re new to WPML, check out our Getting Started Guide. It quickly walks you through all the translation options you can use.

Translating Your SEO Title and Meta Descriptions

All in One SEO Pack Pro allows you to decide between using smart tags or entering text in the Title and Meta Description fields. To rank higher in searches in different languages, we suggest adding text to these fields.

After you’ve set up the SEO options for your default language page, translating them is simple.

One of the options is Translate Everything Automatically – the quickest way to translate and the easiest way to keep your content up to date. This feature automatically translates pages, posts, custom post types, custom fields, taxonomies, WooCommerce products, and more as you add and edit content.

If you have Translate Everything Automatically turned on, your SEO elements – along with all of the page’s content – will be automatically translated.

If you are using the Translate What You Choose mode:

  1. In your post or page editing screen, expand the Language box and click the plus icon next to the language you want to translate your content into.
