Good night dear,

I'm in the process of deploying WPML, but I was left with a question about the automatic translation. One of the reasons for buying WPML was the possibility of manual and automatic translation of languages.

I've already activated machine translation, but I'm being charged for a limit of words, unlike what I saw on your website.

You could confirm or indicate the manual to perform the translation without the charge.


Thanks in advance

Hi There,

On the top of the documentation page you shared above there is a link to the official documentation for WPML Advanced Translation Editor , within the official documentation that goes into detail on how to use the Advanced Translation Editor(ATE) there is also information regarding the purchase of additional words.

ATE comes with a free quota of 2000 words

"This is roughly 5 pages with a medium amount of content. If you want to get more machine translation you can buy additional quota. When you use all of the words within your quota you will be presented with Buy words button within your Advanced Translation Editor."

for more information please review the following


please let me know if you have any further questions regarding the ATE or how to use the manual translation editor as well

Kind Regards,

Hello Bobby,

But on the site says the service is in beta and is not charged for this service. You do not have any information that has a word limit or will be charged. It is clear, "during the beta period, the service is completely free"

In version 4.0, WPML introduced the Advanced Translation Editor, which comes with integrated automatic translation feature.

WPML Advanced Translation Editor is a subscription service that is currently in beta. During the beta period, the service is completely free.

Advanced Translation Editor allows you to use machine translation to translate the entire page at once or field by field.
... "

In choosing the translator, I gave priority to choosing WPML because of the initial machine translation and leaving the option for the client to make manual adjustments if necessary. No additional costs have been accounted for and I can not pass on this amount, precisely because of this information on the website.

The initial content far exceeds the amount of words informed and for me it still has an aggravating factor, I am translating from Portuguese Brazil to Russian, a completely different language.

Unfortunately as we have this open question, I am already asking you to please integrate with Google Translator, for example using Translator Toolkit, or in some other way. I did not find any integration with the partners.

We have a huge volume but not considerable volume of content being required to update automatically as they are the News of the site. Each post uses a significant amount of words, some with 900 words and is something for "temporary" reading. The rest of the site is static, dynamic changes will not occur. As a base, our institutional page has 650 words.

I ask for some indication of solution to the scenario presented.

The FAQ page you have shared with me mentions that Advanced Translation Editor is a subscription feature and only free during beta version , ATE is no longer in beta version which is mentioned within its original documentation (linked at the top of the FAQ page) as well as an email and blog post shared with all users.

Both documentations are shared in the previous post


My apologies if the FAQ is unclear i will be notifying our team on this

When you use Google Translation on the web, it’s free, but you can only use it for one piece of text at a time. To use machine translation in bulk, Google and Microsoft charge a small fee.

we introduced words quota for the Advanced Translation Editor.
Please, read our blog post:

Regarding the Google integration , at the moment there is no option to include a custom integration to the Advanced Translation Editor.
