This is the technical support forum for WPML - the multilingual WordPress plugin.
Everyone can read, but only WPML clients can post here. WPML team is replying on the forum 6 days per week, 22 hours per day.
This thread is resolved. Here is a description of the problem and solution.
Problem: Translated Posts and Pages are immediately published, rather than being saved as Drafts.
Solution: This is expected behavior for translations. This behavior can be changed by using the following steps:
- Go to WPML -> Settings and scroll down to the "Translated documents options" screen
- Change the "Document Status" setting to "Draft" as shown below
- Click the "Save" button under the setting
Now, when you create a translation for any post, it will be saved as a draft until you publish it.
