Getting started with MotionPoint and WPML
To send content for translation to MotionPoint from your WordPress account, you will need to establish accounts with both WPML and MotionPoint.
After your accounts have been set up, install the following plugins on your website:
- WPML Multilingual CMS – the core plugin (note: you will need to have an API key and info from MotionPoint to complete the plug in installation)
- WPML String Translation – this plugin will allow you to translate interface strings
You can download the plugins from your wpml.org account.
Working with MotionPoint via WPML
Here are the basic steps of working with WPML and MotionPoint. For a full walkthrough, check out our page about using WPML with a translation service.
Connecting Your Website to MotionPoint
First, you need to connect WPML with MotionPoint. Part of this very simple process is to request your MotionPoint Account and API token.
Contact MotionPoint to set up an account. After your MotionPoint account is fully set up, you will need to access MotionPoint’s portal to retrieve your API token. This API token will be required when you install your WPML plugin in order for the installation to be functional.
Sending content for translation
Once your site is connected to MotionPoint, you can start sending your content for translation.
Receive a quotation from MotionPoint
Before you submit a page for translation, the total word count being submitted is displayed. MotionPoint also maintains a Translation Memory database for each customer, which utilizes previous translations. This means that the word count displayed when submitting the job may sometimes be higher than the word counts you will be billed for.
Receiving completed translations
Once done, your site is ready to receive completed translations.
The typical setup is for translated jobs to automatically be delivered and published as soon as they are completed. Alternatively, you can opt to have translations saved as drafts once received so that they can review and edit them within WPML before publishing.
Canceling translation jobs
Translation jobs may only be canceled by directly contacting MotionPoint before the job has been assigned for translation. Once a job has been set for translation it can no longer be canceled.

Translating the Rest of Your Site
Once you’re done translating the content of your page, there could be untranslated texts in menus, sidebars, and similar places. No problem, you can use MotionPoint to translate the rest of your site.
