How to edit my translations
In this article, you will find how to replace/edit automatic translations with manual translations. You can do that in all our plans, Free or Premium.
There are 4 different ways to add manual translations or to edit automatic translations.
1) Translations List
a) Go to your Translations List
Please note that if you do not have any translations, you would need to visit your web pages in the translated language to synchronize with Weglot.
b) Select the language pair you would like to edit.
c) Edit your translation
Edit it by clicking on it, selecting the column on the right-hand side. Any changes are automatically saved and displayed on your website, you'll see a message 'save'.
There are several tools to easily navigate within your list (see Search Filters - How to easily find a translation?):
- Type (all, text, media or meta) and quality (automatic, manual or professional) filters
- Search bar to search for specific translations
- URLs on the left-hand side to easily find your translations
- Creation date filter to sort your translations
When your edits are done, go to your website, refresh it, you should see your edited translations. If not, please check this article: I edited the translations but my modifications are not displayed on my website
2) Visual Editor
You can go to the Visual editor in your Weglot dashboard.
Click on "Start editing". Then, you'll be redirected on your website, with the ability to edit all your translations.
Note that you can navigate on your website and change the language directly from the visual editor.
To edit a translation, click on the blue pencil. A box will pop out and you will be able to change the translations.
Once done, you will read the following message "Translation saved".
When your edits are done, go to your website, refresh it, you should see the translated content edited.
Using the Visual Editor, you have the possibility to reach specific pages, with the URL bar on the top left of the screen:

3) The Glossary
- Apply never translate or always translate rules: set rules to always/never translate an original content in a specific way in the destination language
4) Professional Translations
Weglot allows you to order professional translations from vetted pro agencies.
From your translations list, select strings/pages you'd like to order pro translations for. Then in 48-72 hours (it can be longer for large volumes), they'll be automatically integrated into your list and displayed on your websites. (see How to order professional translations?)
