Setting up translators
A translator, in Translation Management – WP Multilingual , is a WordPress user to whom you give translation privileges. Translators can have any type of account in WordPress, including even subscribers. When translating, they will use Translation Management – WP Multilingual ’s translation editor, rather than manually editing WordPress posts and pages.
To turn WordPress users into translators, go to:
Adding a translator
Choose the translation language pair and the user.
For your own translators, click on the ‘local’ option and select the WordPress user. You can also find pre-qualified professional translators in the ICanLocalize option.
Note: once you’ve already chosen a WordPress user as translator, to add another language pair, click on the ‘edit’ link for that translator in the list of translators on this page.
Selecting content types for translation
If you’re only using posts and pages, without any custom fields, you can skip this section.
To choose custom types and custom fields for translation, go to:
Translation Management->Multilingual Content Setup.
Multilingual Content Setup Screen
You’ll see a section for custom fields, custom types and taxonomy. Check the items that require translation.
For custom fields, you can choose to either:
Synchronize – copy from the original to the translations
For custom types and taxonomy, you can choose to make translatable, or keep all in the default language.
