I want to use the automatic translation to translate the strings in widgets. I'm able to assign the strings to a translator but I don't receive an option to automatically translate the strings. There are thousands of strings on the site that need to get translated and I don't want to do them one at a time.

I can't find any documentation that explains how to do this. Can you help?

Hello,

Welcome to the WPML support forum. I will do my best to help you to resolve these issues. Sorry for the delay happened because of the weekend.

For your kind updates, we can only translate the Strings via WPML String Translation Interfaces. Please check the following documentation for more details.

https://wpml.org/documentation/getting-started-guide/string-translation/

https://wpml.org/documentation/translating-your-contents/#translating-strings

https://wpml.org/documentation/getting-started-guide/theme-localization/

Which option you are selected for *WPML>>Theme and plugins localization>>Localization options>>How to translate strings in themes and plugins?*.

*Translate themes and plugins using WPML's String Translation and always load .mo files as backup* option will help you to get the string translations from *.mo* files of plugins and theme. But it requires more memory allocation and may affect the site speed.

I want to be able to translate my widgets, not the strings in my themes or plugins. The only place I can find the widget titles and content are in the strings translation section. If I'm missing something let me know. This isn't about localizing my theme - I don't need to do that. I need to get all of the text from my custom html widgets translated and I'd like to use the automatic translation to do that. Is this possible?

Hello,

Thank you for the updates. Most probably you can find the missing custom HTML widgets strings for translation from *Translate texts in admin screens" page. Please go to WPML>>String Translation and click on the blue link at the bottom of the page: "Translate texts in admin screens »" to visit it. From this page, we can choose the plugins/theme option strings for translation.

Please check the following documentation for more details and let me know your feedback.

https://wpml.org/documentation/getting-started-guide/translating-theme-options/

https://wpml.org/documentation/getting-started-guide/string-translation/#admin_texts

Please note, it will not be possible to automatic translate the Strings from Widgets/theme or plugin options. We have to manually translate it.
