Locale for WordPress


With the WordPress plugin from Locale you can send your pages and posts to your LSP. The plugin requires MultilingualPress 2 or 3.


  1. In your WordPress project, go to Locale > Settings > Credentials
  2. Copy the API key
  3. Paste it into the API key field in WordPress
  4. Click on Save changes

You are now ready to create, and import translation jobs.

Creating Translation Jobs

  1. Go to your posts or pages list
  2. In the Bulk actions dropdown, select Bulk Translate
  3. Tick the checkboxes of the posts or pages that you want to translate
  4. And click on the Apply button beside Bulk Translate

This will create a translation job, that can later be imported into the languages that you have configured in MultilingualPress

Managing Translation Jobs

  1. Go to Locale > Jobs
  2. Here you can view, or delete an existing translation job

Importing Translation Jobs

  1. Go to Locale > Jobs
  2. Select the translation job that you want to import
  3. On the translation job information box, click on Import

This will update the posts indicated in the translation job with the corresponding translations based on the matching language codes.

Project Statuses

Here are the following statuses that a translation job goes through before finally being imported:

  1. In Progress – The translation is in progress.
  2. Delivered – The translation has been completed, and is now ready for importing.

The Import button in a translation job’s information box will only be displayed once it is delivered. Click on Update, occasionally to check on the translation’s status.
