Hello,

Thank you for contacting WPML Support. I am glad to help you with your question.

I’m not really sure by “Automate my blogs”. Do you want WPML automatically translated your blog?

If yes, however, WPML will not be able to automatically translate your content (eg. post, pages, etc.) without at least opening them and entered your translations. But WPML do have “Advanced Translation Editor” (ATE). With ATE, it will allow you to use machine translation for translating the whole page at once or field-by-field.

You can find more information here:
https://wpml.org/faq/does-wpml-support-machine-translation/

It’s also worth to mention that WPML has a feature called “Appear as translated”. Just in case you want WPML to fallback to the original language if it doesn't find any translation for your posts.:
https://wpml.org/2017/11/wpml-3-9-beta-makes-content-duplication-a-thing-of-the-past/

In the admin, try to edit a post. At the bottom, you can find “Multilingual Content Setup”. This function will treat posts as translated. So if you view your post in your default language (.eg FR), you will also see those posts from your secondary language (eg. EN).

If you have any questions, please write us back! 🙂

Kind regards,
Dennis
