After installing Autoglot plugin
A few simple steps are required after you download and install Autoglot plugin from the official repository:
- Create an account in your Control Panel at https://cp.autoglot.com/signup. You will already have an initial translation balance that can be used to check the functionality of our plugin.
- Find and copy your Access Key from your Autoglot Control Panel. This looks like “AG_XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX”. This key should be kept secret and never shared with anyone.
- Paste your Access Key in your Autoglot settings page in your WordPress website or blog.
- Choose your default language and any number of languages you want your site or blog translated to. We recommend starting with only one language to check your website functionality and then add additional languages if you need them.
- Enable Autoglot plugin. You can choose translation to be available for site administrator only. In this way, your visitors will not see the live translation until you check and make sure your website or blog looks good.
- You can modify additional settings like hreflangs tags, sitemap files, external links, and so on.
- Enjoy your new websites! Autoglot will create a separate version of your website in every new language with a unique easily scannable and crawlable URLs.
Is this free?
- We do not require any subscription and monthly fees; you don’t need to pay for storage or bandwidth. But you will have to pay for translation – and this is where we cannot offer our service for free because we also have to pay fees to NMT services (neural machine translation providers).
- Moreover, when you register, you will have an initial translation balance that can be used to check the functionality of our plugin.
How much do I need to pay for translation?
- Our pricing depends only on your words count.
- We can offer options where you can pay less than $0.001 per word! This is 100 times cheaper than working with freelance translators.
- For more information, please check our pricing page.
What is a “Translation Balance”?
- This is number of words you can translate. You can check and replenish your translation balance via your control panel using a credit card. For pricing information, please check our pricing page.
- When your blog posts and pages are automatically translated to another language, we will subtract number of words in your content from your translation balance. For example, if your blog post contains 100 words, we will subtract 100 from your translation balance. If you translate your blog post to 2 languages, we will subtract 200 from your translation balance, etc.
- If your translation balance reaches 0, we will not be able to provide new translation for you until you replenish your balance. However, unlike many other plugins, your previous translations will still be available on your website and will never be disabled until you decide to do so.
Is the plugin SEO compatible?
- Yes, Autoglot follows all the best search engine optimization practices and creates fully SEO compatible language versions.
- Autoglot will translate all HTML titles, META tags, schema.org markup, take care of all language settings, hreflang tags, etc.
- Autoglot will also update most SEO plugins’ sitemap XML files and add new language URLs there. You will not have to modify them manually!
I noticed a bad translation string. Can I change it?
Unfortunately, not. At this time, we only provide a tool for fully automatic machine translation. However, we will integrate a new feature soon that allows manual changes in translation.
Yes, this can be done using our “Links Modifier” tool. This will replace links depending on current language, so you can have a link to site.de on your German pages, site.es on your Spanish pages and so on.
Can I embed different images and videos in different languages?
Yes, this can be done using our “Text Replacement” tool. This feature of Autoglot plugin lets you easily change pieces of content on your translated pages. For example, you can change video URLs depending on current language, so you will show different videos in different languages.
What is the quality of machine translation in Autoglot?
The quality of NMT (neural machine translation) has increased significantly lately. According to some experts, the leading machine translation providers can show the quality comparable to medium-level professional translators. Moreover, many of these translators also use neural machine translation systems to generate the initial translation and then slightly proofread it. Sounds weird? Add the fact that you will have to pay them 100 times more.
Autoglot provides reasonable quality for the fraction of this cost. And it is fully automated!
