Tell us what you are trying to do? we are going to use advanced editor to translate the English to German and i will set myself as the translation manager. but after the first translation, we would like to send the pages(completed or not completed) to a specialist translator. Can you send me the steps how to do this?

Is there any documentation that you are following? I need to understand which documentation to follow

Is there a similar example that we can see? no

What is the link to your site? hidden link

Hello,

Thank you for contacting WPML Support. I will be glad to help with this.

I would like to ask you what do you mean by specialist translator ? A user using your backend to translate ? or an integrated translation service ?
We have a list of integrated services and systems https://wpml.org/translation-service/

If the translator will be using your backend. You will need to create a user for him and add him as translator, you can do both in WPML->Translation Management->Translation Roles(tab).
The user must have the pairs of languages that he can translate, (english->french or spanish->french).
Then you can send translations following this article
https://wpml.org/documentation/translating-your-contents/how-to-send-content-for-translation/

If the translator is using his own tools, we have another way documented here https://wpml.org/forums/topic/export-existing-content-for-offline-translation-then-import-as-new-language/

I hope this answers your question. I remain at your disposal.

Best regards,
Jamal

Hello,

Actually there is no easy way to tell. And it depends on what you have updated.
WPML translate 2 different types of content.
1. Post/Taxonomy content
This includes posts, pages, gravity forms, woocommerce products and anything that is stored as Custom Post Type of taxonomy https://codex.wordpress.org/Post_Types
This can be translated using our Translation Editors(Classic and advanced) and manually using WordPress user interface.
And can also be translated through jobs. using WPML->Translation Management.
2. Strings:
This includes strings used in plugins and themes code, strings used in admin dashboard, sometimes configurations for plugins too.
This can be translated through WPML->String Translation.
Theme and plugins strings can be exported as mo files to be translated using a compatible editor like Poedit.

If you have updated "Custom post type" like data, you can easily see it in WPML->Translation Management. Use the filters to see all the types.
But in the other case it is still difficult to tell.

I hope this gives you some insights on how WPML is working, feel free to visit the translation management documentation
https://wpml.org/documentation/translating-your-contents/

If you still have doubts on something, please give me some examples, and i will see how to help.

Best regards,
Jamal
