    We are using the latest version of WPML. We are looking at your plugin and we would like to know if we can migrate from WPML to your plugin.

    It is possible – a friend has done it recently – but it requires some work, because WPML stores the data in a very different way than Multilingual Press. And it depends on the features you have used.

    We're migrating a site at present, but adopted a manual approach. The site has about 100 translated posts & pages.

    We kept both plugins running side by side, and cut & paste from old WPML translation to new Multilingual Press translations. Manageable for this number of posts.

    Once complete, you turn off WPML, and need to delete the additional posts that it created (it creates a duplicate of each post in each language).

    WPML is a mess!
    I want to migrate from WPML too, but does the plugin work with woocommerce? Can I translate product descriptions too?

    The content of the main editor is translatable, for custom fields you have to add separate metaboxes or switch to the connected site.
