I write a new post in the principal language (in this case in Galician language) and i put this post is draft mode. After, I write the post spanish version and i put in draft mode too.

Then, when i publish the galician post WPML don´t publish the spanish post automatically. I have to edit the spanish post and click in the publish button.

Is there any way to change this behaviour? That is, when i publish the post in the Galician language automatically publish in the other languages, instead of i have to edit the post in other languanges and click the publish button.

Thanks in advance

Hi and thank you for contacting WPML Support!

I will be happy to help you with this.

The translated items that are stored in the site's database are independent of each other so you would need to publish each of them individually after you finished the translation work.

Unfortunately, there's no way of having multiple translations being published from one single action.

Kind regards,
