To import multilingual content, you need to follow a specific workflow. Here’s a general overview:

  2. Import your file containing taxonomies in the default language.
  3. Individually import each file containing taxonomies in the secondary language.
  4. Import your file containing posts in the default language.
  5. Repeat the import process for files containing posts in the secondary language. Make sure to define the file that contains the default language content you already imported as the parent of these imports.
