Getting started with Semantix

To send the content for translation in Semantix, please ensure that you have the following plugins installed on your website:

  • WPML Multilingual CMS – the core plugin
  • WPML Translation Management – this plugin will allow you to connect to Semantix
  • WPML String Translation – this plugin will allow you to translate interface strings

You can download them from your wpml.org account. If you do not have an account yet, you can create a new one by choosing WPML Multilingual CMS or Multilingual Agency plans.

Semantix will be visible at the WPML > Translation Management > Translation Services tab, which is available only after the WPML registration. The entire process only takes a few seconds.

If you require help with the WPML plugin configurations, you can use the getting started guide or simply ask a question on the support forum.

Canceling translation jobs

If for any reason, you want to cancel the translation of the pages sent from WPML to Semantix, bear in mind that:

  • You cannot manually delete or cancel jobs from the Translation Jobs tab on your website.

Depending on your Translation Pickup mode configuration, the cancellation request can be sent to your website automatically through XML-RPC. Otherwise, you must click the Check status and get translations button on the Translation Dashboard tab to refresh the status and see the changes.

As a result, WPML will remove all canceled jobs from the Translation Jobs tab.
