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

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.
