A few weeks ago, we changed the pricing of automatic translation, moving from one-time payments to subscriptions. We received a lot of feedback and we realized that our new subscription plans are problematic. Today, we're changing the pricing of automatic translation to address these issues.

2000 Words Free Every Month

Before our move to subscription payments, we offered 2000 free words for each new website that you create. Now, it's even better. You'll receive 2000 words every month (not only one-time). If you're using automatic translation for small sites and only need to translate small texts, we don't charge you. For 0-2000 words per month, as long as your WPML account is valid, there's no payment.

A Discount of $2.98 To All Pricing Steps for Sites with Valid WPML Accounts

We decided to apply the saving to all payment steps. Any site that has a valid WPML account now receives a discount of $2.98 per month for automatic translation. This means that the first 2000 words are free. The next step (up to 5000 words) costs only $2, and so on.

How to Get the New Better Pricing for Existing Subscriptions

Do you already have an automatic translation subscription? In this case, you need to cancel it first and then activate one of the new plans.

To cancel your current subscription, go to the WPML -> Translation Management page and click the Translation Tools tab. Click the Details button in the top-right corner, and then the Cancel subscription link.

Finally, to set up a new subscription, again on the Translation Tools tab, click the Details button in the top-right corner. Follow the prompts to set up your new subscription.

How to Use Automatic Translation

First, you need to use WPML's Advanced Translation Editor to have access to automatic translation. You can translate individual jobs automatically from inside the translation editor. Or, you can auto-translate entire batches of jobs. Have a look at our documentation for automatic translation for the full details.

More Editor Improvements Coming Soon

Besides working on our payment system, we're getting closer to releasing significant improvements to WPML's Advanced Translation Editor. In the coming weeks, we will gradually roll-out features that you've been waiting for like:

  • You will be able to translate any text in any document. This includes shortcode attributes, CSS values, URLs and more..
  • You can have an empty translation for sentences.
  • You can merge sentences and translate them together. This is especially useful for sentences that include dots and other punctuation that causes our editor to split when not needed.

Feedback?

There's no need to install or update anything to receive these changes. They are running on WPML's Advanced Translation Editor. Please let us know your thoughts, questions or concerns and we'll get back to you.
