Please review the following documentation


With WPML there are 3 main ways of translating content

1. Manually, that is where you add your translations either by using the classic translation editor or Advanced Translation Editor

2. Using the advanced translation editor to translate automatically , which gives you a free quota of 2000 words and additional words can be purchased as explained here


3. Using a translation service. You can send your translations to be created by a professional service


if you have any further questions please feel free to ask me

Ok... I already did the first and the second steps - I need to know the difference between the translation service and buying more words package.

1. Advanced Translation Editor (Buying More Words)

With Advanced Translation Editor you get 2 Options , to translate manually or to translate automatically (machine translation)

When you translate automatically (machine translation) you initially get a free quota of 2000 (about 5 pages of content)words to translate , afterwords you can buy more to translate more pages/posts/etc.

so Advanced Translation Editor allows you to automatically translate your content fast. (faster option)

2. Translation Service

There are alot of different services that you can chose from, WPML integrates them within our plugin. With Translation Service you select your pages/strings/posts/etc that you want to translate and send them as a job through WPML Translation Management to a service of your choice.

So in summary Advanced Translation Editor allows automatic translation (after 2000 words buying words is required to continue with more content) and Translation Services allows you to send the translations to a proffesional service to translate for you and send them back.

here is more information on the pricing on additional words for advanced translation editor
