WPML’s Advanced Translation Editor

WPML also offer an Advanced Translation Editor. The editor comes with key features like machine translation, a glossary, translation memory, spell checker, HTML-less editing, and more. To use it, it needs to be first activated on the WPML -> Settings page.

The main features it offers are these:

  • HTML Markers - The Advanced Translation Editor allows visual translation without having to edit HTML.
  • Machine Translation - The Advanced Translation Editor allows you to auto-translate the whole page at once, or a specific sentence you are currently editing. It supports most of the world languages.

  • Translation Memory - The Advanced Translation Editor breaks the content into sentences, allowing the editor to keep track of all the translated text. If there are repetitions, the editor will find and auto-complete the same phrases for you.
  • Glossary - The Advanced Translation Editor contains a Glossary, that allows you to inform translators of important keywords and phrases for which you want to suggest translations.

  • Spell checker - The built-in spell checker helps you avoid spelling errors and typos.

Please see the video below from WPML for more information, outlining the features offered by the Advanced Translation Editor.
