Sending content for translation
Now, you are ready to send content for translation. For detailed steps, please visit our dedicated documentation page.
Receiving a quotation and authorizing your translation
The final setups of your project need to be confirmed directly in Semantix. To do that, click the Translation Jobs tab at the top of the page and click the batch name to open the list of new project requests in Semantix.
Receiving completed translations
As soon as a translation job is finished by Semantix, it will be ready to be delivered to your website.
Depending on your configuration, translations will be delivered automatically or can be manually fetched from your WordPress admin panel.
To check your configuration, go to WPML -> Settings, locate the Translation Pickup mode section and verify the selected option.
When automatic delivery is selected, translations will be delivered to your website automatically as soon they are complete. At any time, you can check the status of translation jobs.
If you choose the option to fetch translation manually, you can download completed translations from the WPML -> Translation Management page. Click the Check status and get translations button at the top of the page.
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.
- The project can be canceled only in Semantix’s Client Portal. To do this, please login to your Semantix account.
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.
