Hi,
I have a site with 2 languages - Russian and Ukrainian.
All posts have Russian as a default language.
But ALL tags have Ukrainian. So tags don't automatically set in Ukrainian when I add a post in Ukrainian.
The question is - how to change default language for ALL tags to Russian?
Thank a lot for a fast reply.

Hi,

Thank you for contacting WPML support.

Please go to WPML > Taxonomy translation and select the 'tag' type you want.
Scroll down to the section : Translations of taxonomy Tag labels and slug : hidden link
And, change the language.
Does that solve your issue?

Let me know.

Regards,
Riffaz.

Hi,

Actually, there is no any pretty easy way to do this.
Just go to tags.
hove over the tag.
click edit
go to the very bottom and change the language/add: hidden link

In this way, you have to do this one by one.
For now, there is no any way to do this in bulk.

You can suggest this as a feature request : https://wpml.org/suggest-a-new-feature-for-wpml/

Maybe wp all export/import solves the issue?

Hi,

export/import will work if you assign the correct language and set the correct language in the export/import file.
if you try to import Russian tags to Ukranian or ukranian tags to Russian that may create some issue such as mixing languages in tags.
