Hi, Dear
Today when I try to set and take use of the machine transaton function to translate my site to various language.
It seemed that I have to pay if the nubmer is over 2000 limits.
Could you please suggest a convenient way for using this function at 0 cost?

Thanks a lot
Best regars

Hi Alex,

I will help with your issue,

Machine translation is an add-on feature in WPML which uses a third party machine translation service. WPML uses Microsoft Azure API for machine translation which is a paid service. We manage to give a Free Quota of 2000 words translation for new registrations beyond which requires the user to purchase credits to keep using the machine translation for their sites.

Since we have to pay for the machine translation service we are charging our clients beyond the free limit.

Please refer to machine translation quota announce for more information https://wpml.org/2018/12/machine-translation-quotas-for-wpmls-advanced-translation-editor/

I hope this helps you better, Let me know if you need further clarification.

Kind regards
Raja
