This guide teaches translation managers how to run multilingual sites. It covers the different kinds of translators that you can set up, the different tools they can use, and how to send content for translation.

As the site’s Translation Manager, you are responsible for setting-up translators or translation services and sending content for translation.

After you log-in to your WordPress site, go to WPML->Translation Management.

A wizard is waiting for you, which will guide you through the setup steps.

Your first task, as the site’s Translation Manager, is to choose who will translate the content on your site.

You can bring your own translators to the site or use a translation service. WPML offers integration with the web’s leading translation services, offering accurate translations at affordable budgets.

If you have not considered using professional translation for your site, you may be spending a lot more than you need. See the benefits of using professional translation for your site.

You may opt to use both your own translators and translation services on the same site. When using both, you will need to choose who will translate each job.
