Lilt is the new engine for enterprise translation workflows. We increase quality and speed with the neural feedback loop which combines human ingenuity and machine intelligence in a virtuous cycle.

Inizio con Lilt

To send files for translation to Lilt, you first have to login to your account, and download and install the following plugins on your website:

  • WPML Multilingual CMS: the core plugin.
  • WPML Translation Management: this plugin will allow you to connect to Lilt.
  • WPML String Translation: this plugin will enable you to translate interface strings.

If you do not have a account yet, you can create a new one by simply choosing between our WPML Multilingual CMS or Multilingual CMS Lifetime plans.

As soon as you get access to your  account, you may refer to our detailed step-by-step guide on how to download and install WPML. Please remember to register your site to receive automatic updates and gain access to Lilt’s services.

If you need any help with the WPML plugin configuration, you can go through our getting started guide or simply ask a question on our support forum.

Connecting your website to Lilt

Once all the required plugins have been installed and activated, all you need to connect WPML to the translation service are your Lilt Connection key and Connection url.

There are two ways to sign up for a Lilt account:

  1. Become a Lilt customer and purchase Lilt Software or Services. Contact Lilt’s Sales Team to learn more.

Congratulations! Your translation provider’s Lilt Server is now connected to your WordPress account. You are now ready to send content for translation.

Sending your content for translation

To send pages for translation, go to the Translation Management module (WPML->Translation Management).

Translation Management


Select the pages you want to translate by clicking the checkboxes in the first column. Next, select the target languages by checking the boxes, and click the Add selected content to translation basket button.


Selecting pages to send for translation


Go to Translation Management and click on the blinking tab at the top of the page, which is called Translation Basket. On this tab, you will see a list of all the pages (jobs) that you added to the basket, as well as the languages these items are to be translated into.

Here, you can verify the content you wish to translate, remove pages you accidentally added, and change the Batch name. The Batch name is visible on the Translation Jobs tab and will help you find projects. Think of a batch as the technical scope of a purchase order. You can refer to the batch names when communicating with your translation provider, which they will also see. When you are ready, simply click the Send all items for translation button to send everything to Lilt.

Sending pages for translation

Each batch that you send, and each language you want those pages translated into,  will become individual Projects in Lilt. Read more about Projects in Lilt.

When the translation basket’s contents have been successfully sent to Lilt, you will see a confirmation message, as shown in the following figure.


Basket contents successfully submitted to Lilt

At this point:

  • If you are a Lilt Software-only customer, you can sign in to Lilt to find and manage all of your Projects as usual.
  • If you are a Lilt Services customer, no further action is required. Lilt will match qualified translators to work on your Projects, just like content that comes from any other source.

Monitoring translation progress

You can follow the translation progress of the documents you sent to Lilt from your translation jobs tab, or from the Lilt app itself.

To monitor progress from within WordPress, click on the Translation Jobs link in the confirmation message or click on the Translation Jobs tab at the top of the screen. On the next administration screen, the Batch that you just sent to translation will appear.

Batch sent for translation

After clicking on the batch name, you’ll be redirected to Lilt client portal to log in.

Once logged in, you will be redirected to your “Projects” page.


Projects in Lilt

NOTE: Lilt creates one Project for each Translation Batch, for each language.

Checking for completed translations

Check for completed jobs by visiting Translation Jobs inside your WordPress admin -> WPML -> Translation Management.

Locate the batch you want to check and click on the Synchronize status button.


Synchronizing jobs


Having your completed translations delivered to your site

Depending on your configuration, translations either will be delivered automatically or can be fetched manually from your WordPress admin panel after you click the Synchronize status button.

To check your configuration settings, open WPML->Translation Management and click on the Multilingual Content Setup tab. Find the Translation Pickup mode section and check the selected option.


Select translation delivery method


  • The option labeled Translation Service will deliver translations automatically using XML-RPC means that a translation will be delivered to your website automatically after you click the Synchronize status
  • The option labeled The site will fetch translations manually means that completed translations can be downloaded from the Translations Dashboard (WPML->Translation Management) by using the Check status and get translations button at the bottom of the page after clicking the Synchronize status


Fetching completed translations manually


Once the jobs are fetched, their status in the Translation jobs tab will be changed to “Complete.”


Jobs complete


Canceling translation jobs

Although you cannot cancel individual translations from WPML, you can delete a single job or an entire project from your the Projects page on the Litle Client Portal.


Deleting an entire project


Deleting a single translation job


When a project or a job is deleted, you can synchronize what appears under WPML’s Translation Jobs tab by clicking on the Synchronize status button.


Synchronizing status


Having your canceled translations returned to your site

When a project is canceled, information will be returned to your site after you have manually checked for canceled translations. First, click the Synchronize status button and after a few seconds/minutes (depending on the amount of content) click the Check status and get translations button on the Translation Management Dashboard.


Checking for canceled jobs in manual translation pick up mode


When a project is canceled, it is removed from the Translation Jobs tab in WPML.

How do I know when my translations are complete?

If you are a Lilt Software-only customer, you can view the status of all your Projects within the Lilt Projects Dashboard.

If you are a Lilt Services customer, your Service Manager will send you an email notifying you that all translations are complete.
