Hello,

I want to do WXR Import automatically (I importing over 150 posts from different CMS).
Can you please provide me with a guide?

What table should I generate to connect languages in my posts?
Can I do it inside WXR file (what fields)?

Thank you!

Hi,

Thank you for contacting WPML support!

I believe that this is the only guide we can provide:

My colleague also explained there why this can be done automatically, but only manually.

This is necessary because the WordPress XML file does not save the WPML information. That way you need to connect the posts manually.

This may also shed some light on what is behind this:
