Hi,

my client has pages, posts and other CTPs ready. I need to bulk duplicate them in English (as a translation) and they will go over it and check it and localize them. Is there a posibility to do so?

Thanks a lot.
best regards,
Karolina

Hello and thank you for contacting us.
Yes, duplication to the other language is possible.
You can check our documentation here on how you can duplicate: https://wpml.org/documentation/translating-your-contents/displaying-untranslated-content-on-pages-in-secondary-languages/using-content-duplication/

After you have duplicated the posts, you need to go to the translated post first and select "Translate Independently" - that is needed in order to avoid automatic synchronization with the original, once the original is updated - so that you don't lose any translation data.

Alternatively, you can try also using code similar to the one in https://wpml.org/wpml-hook/wpml_make_post_duplicates/ to make that programmatically.
