How to translate posts as a translator

Translation jobs are assigned periodically for all translators and you can find them in the “Translation interface” list at the left side of the screen.

Each translation job consist in the main article and the attached images. At this moment there is no way to distinguish between the main article and the images in the Translation interface list; you will see the differences after entering in the Translation screen as the images have only Alternate text and Title to translate and the main article is a little more complex.

However distinguishing between those two is not necessary as all post components have to be translated to complete the translation job.

Until this issue gets resolved you will have only 1 translation job available at a time in Translation Interface. You will also get an email as a new translation job become available.

For translating a post follow the steps below:

1. Click on the “Translation interface” menu on the left side of your screen:
