Automatic Translation

The Automatic Translation page from TranslatePress lets you enable and configure the automatic translation of your website content through the available APIs.

TranslatePress lets you use the Google Translate v2 API. The Deepl option is not available for your BBWP site.

In order to use this API you will need to create an account with Google and get a key. For more info, refer to the page below:

How to generate a Google API key

To minimize translation costs, each untranslated string is automatically translated only once, then stored in the database.

Automatic Translation Settings

There are a few settings that you can configure when setting up the Automatic Translation feature.

Block Crawlers – if you enable this option, crawlers that are indexing your website will not trigger the automatic translation of your website

Limit machine translation / characters per day – this option lets you limit the amount of characters that the plugin translates through the selected translation API each day.

The default limit is set at 1 000 000 characters but you can adjust this to your liking. The main purpose of this option is to limit the overall costs that you experience from the translation API.

Log machine translation queries – this option is only recommended for testing and debugging as it might affect performance.

By enabling it, every request that is made to the selected translation API will be logged in your database so you can inspect it.
