Automatically Translate Articles with Machine Translations

Jarratt Isted Updated by Jarratt Isted

Selling to customers around the world can increase the reach of your business. The problem comes when you need to support them in their language. If you're not a linguist this becomes a lotta work.

With our automatic machine translations, you can send an article off to be translated and get back an accurate translation in seconds. This saves having to get a third party involved and you can delay picking up that language dictionary a little longer šŸ¤«

Machine translations are only available on some of our plans

How to Machine Translate Articles

  1. Make sure your article is in a secondary language
  2. Click the Machine translation button in the top bar
  3. Review your translation credit total and click Translate into language
  4. You're done! šŸ¤Æ
When you use Machine Translate to translate an article all your images and formatting will be preserved. It'll save you a bunch of time!

Understanding Credits

Depending on which plan you choose you'll get a certain number of machine translation credits. These renew each month šŸ“†

You're also able to add one-off machine translation credits to your account that do not expire.

One credit will be used each time you use the Machine Translations feature to translate one article into one language. If you're translating one article into e.g. three languages that'll use 3 of your credits.

Limitations

  • Translation count
    We'd love to offer unlimited translations but this awesome stuff costs us. Get in touch if you need more translations āœØ
  • Accuracy
    We do our best and employ the latest technology built by Google, but we can't guarantee the content you get back will be 100% accurate
  • HTML complexity
    If your article's really complicated with lots of HTML elements we may struggle to translate it for you. The most common offender here is massive tables. If you encounter this you can split your large elements into smaller ones before translation šŸ•µļøā€ā™€ļø
  • Available Languages
    We support a lotta languages, but not every language
