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.
Is there a way to create translated posts automatically, meaning with a function that would just create the translated post with the data of the original post (no manual translation needed)?
Yes, WPML has such an option. We call it 'display as translated'. Please read our documentation about it here.
