How would I approach automatically applying a Google translation to page content for ~500 custom posts on my site?
I’ve created a French version of my website using the WPML plugin (French site here). My issue is that every post on this French site still has all page content in English, not French. As you can see in this example post–the menus, footer, etc are in French, but the content is still in English (e.g. “A spacious 3 bedroom villa located…”). Is there a way to ensure this content is automatically translated to another language, using Google Translate?? In other words, when a visitor opens this page, the content in-question would automatically be translated to French, via Google Translate.
I realize that, using the WPML plugin, I can add translations to each of these posts–one by one–via the WordPress editor. And indeed, that’s the entire purpose of using WPML. But I have ~500 of these custom posts. I am working on manual translations for each. But in the meantime, I was hoping to add automatic machine translations, if possible.
There are plugins that do something similar. But I believe they all attempt to translate the entire page, including menus, footer, etc. This is undesirable, since I already have manual translations of those. Plus, I’m not sure if any automatically apply a particular translation. I would like a solution that automatically translates page content only. Additionally, none of those plugins are compatible with WPML (I’ve confirmed that with WPML support). Using both together introduces issues. In fact, I already use one such plugin, and had to deal with issues from using both together.
