I need to update some import with more posts

Hi.

For the translations, you need to set the latest default language import to be the parent for the translations to be connected. Looking at your screenshot the parent import needs be this file: mallorca_2019-02-26_15.30.31-en.csv

Please note that you need to set the same 'Unique identifier' / 'connector' (the my_own_id field in your case) in two places. Once in the WP All Import on step number three. And once in the 'Unique Identifier' field of the 'Automatic Record Matching to Translate' section.
Please see our documentation video.

Please let me know if this information is helpful to you.

Hi.

Please tell me if I understand correctly the import steps that you did.

1. Imported mallorca1.csv in the English language (default language of the site) which contained 33 posts.

2. Imported mallorca_ru.csv which contained 33 posts in the Russian language as the translations for the mallorca1.csv.

3. Imported mallorca_es.csv which contained 33 posts in the Spanish language as the translations for the mallorca1.csv.

4. Imported mallorca_2019-02-26_15.30.31-en.csv in the English language which contained 94 posts. As a result of this import 33 existing posts from mallorca1.csv were updated and 61 new posts were added in the English language.

Is this the process that you did?
If so then what did you chose on step 4, 'New Items' or 'Existing items'?

And now you want to import mallorca_2019-02-27_18.21.36-es.csv as the Spanish translation. How many posts are in this file?

I look forward to your reply!

Itamar.
