Hey I was wondering

Currently I change the 'Use the WordPress Editor to translate' and select 'All the site’s content option' within a page, is there a way of being able to do this globally so it doesn't need to be done on a page by page basis?

Thanks

Hi and thank you for contacting WPML Support!

I will be happy to help you with this.

I'm not sure that I understand what you mean.

There are 3 ways of translating pages/posts/other custom post types with WPML.

1. Either by using the WPML Classic Editor (https://wpml.org/documentation/translating-your-contents/using-the-translation-editor/)
2. by using the WPML Advanced Editor (https://wpml.org/documentation/translating-your-contents/advanced-translation-editor/)
3. By using the WordPress Manual Editor (https://wpml.org/documentation/translating-your-contents/using-different-translation-editors-for-different-pages/)

If your content is pretty big in size or if you have a specific content layout that you have built with a visual editor like WP Bakery or Elementor, you could use the duplication functionality explained below where you can simply use Translation Management to duplicate page content:
https://wpml.org/documentation/translating-your-contents/displaying-untranslated-content-on-pages-in-secondary-languages/using-content-duplication/

Also here you can find more about Translation Management:

Hope this information was helpful. Please let me know if you still have questions 🙂

KInd regards,
Mihai Apetrei
