Make use of our built in machine translation services. Translate your post or terms automatically without manual work.To use the machine translation services like Google Translate, DeepL or the Microsoft translation service you first need to get an API key.
- See here how to get a Google Translate API Key
- For DeepL you need a developer abo Account
- For Microsoft you need a Azure Service
When you got your API key go into plugin settings and enter the key into the service you want to use. You can then also specify what meta or data keys for posts or terms should be translated using the translation service. By default post data like post_title, post_content, post_excerpt will be translated and for terms it are name, slug, description.
So if you know want to translate a post or term open up the specific page. Then you will see a new box called machine translation. Choose a source and target language, then click on update button.
If you want to translate multiple items at once, you can use the bulk functionality from WordPress. Mark some posts with the checkbox and choose bulk translation.
