I have many English language blog posts imported from another WordPress blog. I would like all of these to appear in my other languages (French and Japanese). I realize I can manually select and publish each one but this is very tedious. Is there a way to either:
1. mass import and publish to another language OR
2. Just show the English language posts

Thank you for contacting WPML Support. In this case I recommend you to set your posts in the default language to show in all your languages, for that you can follow these steps.

1 - Go to WordPress Dashboard > WPML > Settings > Post types translations settings.

2 - Then, set the option 'Translatable - use translation if available or fallback to default language' for your 'Posts (post)' type.


Please, let me know if it helps, have a nice day.
