Supertext Translation

Description

This plugin allows the user to send a WordPress post or page to Supertext for translation.
Once completed, the translation will be automatically inserted into a new page or post in your WordPress installation.
This works for every post type that is translatable by Polylang.

Supertext can translate content, titles, excerpts, image captions, shortcode arguments and custom fields.
Simply order a translation instead of creating a new page with Polylang.
You will be presented with services, prices and deadlines. Select the right one for you and you’ll be notified by email once your translated page or post has been uploaded to your website.

Please note

Translatable custom fields must be defined in the settings. Supported plugins at the moment are:

  • Advanced Custom Fields
  • Yoast SEO
  • All In One SEO pack

If the field is not available in one of the lists, you can define it by adding self defined custom fields.

Plugin has been tested with following page builders:

  • Visual Composer
  • Beaver Builder
  • BE page builder
  • Divi page builder
  • SiteOrigin page builder

Screenshots

  • Just order your translation using the Order translation link instead of creating the new content yourself
  • First order step for one post where you can select the content to be translated and the target language
  • You need to order more than one post? Just use the bulk action Order translation
  • First order step for multiple posts where you can select the content to be translated and the target language
  • Second order step where you can select the service and deadline
  • Order confirmation

  2. Click on Order translation underneath the target language.

How to translate the site title and tagline?

The site title and the tagline are part of the general settings of your WordPress. You can translate these texts using the String translations feature of Polylang:

Did you translate the site title but it is still displayed in only one language? In this case you can check if the themes header is using the correct WordPress functions to get the title/tagline (wp_title() or get_bloginfo()).

  1. Go to the media library (Media->Library).
  2. Select the images you want to order.
  3. Select Order translation from the Bulk Actions drop down.
  4. Click on Apply next to the drop down.
