We submitted some forms for translation last week (3rd may) and we wondering when the translations might be completed? We need to post the forms on the website by the 15th may - will the translations be completed by then?

Are you using a translation service to translate these forms ?

if yes which translation service did you submit your work with ?

you should be able to access a different dashboard from within your translation service of your choice that might show this information.

We are using Gravity forms plugin partnered with WPML and submitted the translations via the plugin. The translation dashboard says 'Waiting for Translator - (needs update)' but there is no indication to say how long this might take. Is there something we need to do from our end to get the process going?

These translations have just been send to translation in your local enviroment.

notice they are assigned to "First Available(Local)", this is for enviroments that use their own transaltors.

you as the manager of the site sends the transaltions and then your own translators can see them on their dashboard and grab them to work on them.

if you are not working with your own translator locally you can just create your self as a translator from within WPML->Transaltion Management->Translators -> add new.

OR just simply work on the transaltions manually without needing to send them for transaltion.

Now if you desire to send them to a transaltion service you will need to sign up for the one that works best for you and send it to them.

Overall WPML allows you to translate your posts / pages manually.

you can either send translation jobs to local translator, OR send them to a translation service.
