Translating SiteOrigin Pages with WPML

Translating pages built using SiteOrigin page builder is similar to translating the pages you build using the Gutenberg editor.

Translate Everything Automatically mode translates all your site content automatically, including pages built with SiteOrigin.

If you are not using Translate Everything Automatically mode, you can send your content for translation to a professional translation service or assign translation jobs to your team of local translators.

To translate the pages yourself, follow these steps:

  1. Navigate to the page editing screen.
  2. In the Language box, click on the plus icon corresponding to the language you want to translate your page into. This takes you to WPML’s Advanced Translation Editor.
Click the plus icon to translate the page
  1. On the automatic translation pop-up window, click on the Yes, translate automatically button to apply machine translation.
