Assign imported English posts to corresponding Spanish posts (3 posts)

    Hi everyone,
    I've browsed the threads and I think I didn't find this matter addressed. I recently installed Polylang in my WP Spanish blog, in order to have my posts both in Spanish and English. I had an old English blog though, in Blogger, with the translation of some of the posts. I ran the Blogger Importer and I now have all the English posts in my WP blog, but as independent posts, not linked to their actual translation. I was wondering if there is some way to make Polylang know which English post is the translation of the corresponding Spanish post... other than copying and pasting.
    Thanks in advance.

    For now, it is not very convenient... I need to improve this in the future. See: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/linking-existing-content-as-translations?replies=3#post-3818081

    Thank you, Chouby!! But I must say I already found the answer: when you edit the original language post (Spanish in my case) you find a box on the right upper corner for the English post ID. If you click the "Add new" option on the right of that, an ID is automatically assigned to the original post, which can be seen in the box.
    Then you just need to copy that ID, edit the previously imported English post and fill the ID box with the number you just got, to tell WP this imported post is the translation of the original post. Et voilá!
