  • You can create the CSV file using software like Microsoft Excel or Google Sheets. Simply input the data for each field according to your requirements. Ensure that the data is organized correctly and follows the format expected by the plugin.

How to Import a CSV File:

Initiate Import/Update:

  • Upload the CSV file containing the data you want to import into your website. Once uploaded, click “Continue” to proceed.

Sample CSV data for custom posts and custom fields.

WPML import and export

Notes:

  • Translation Process: We’re not covering the translation process itself in this guide. You can either manually translate your content or opt for automated translation services provided by WPML. Keep in mind that automated translation may incur costs. For pricing details, please refer to WPML’s website.
  • Pre-translated Content: In this trial instance, we’ve already translated the posts and custom posts into German and Spanish. This allows you to explore the functionality of WPML with pre-translated content.

Exporting WPML Data

Choose content to export:

Log in to your WordPress dashboard and navigate to the CSV Importer Pro plugin. Within the plugin, select the post or custom post type that you want to export. WPML manages translations for various content types, so you can choose any of these.

Initiate Export: 

Once you’ve selected the content type, proceed to initiate the export process. Follow the on-screen prompts to complete the export.

  • After the export is complete, you’ll receive a CSV file containing the exported data. Download this file and open it using software like Microsoft Excel or Google Sheets.
  • In the CSV file, you’ll find all the translated content organized in columns. Each language may have its own column, allowing you to easily review and manage the translated content.

Finding Translated Content in the Exported File

You can easily identify the translated content within the exported CSV file. Here’s how:

  • Identify language codes: Look for the field named ‘language_code’ in the CSV file. This field indicates the language of the content. For example, if the language code is ‘de’, it represents the content in German, while ‘es’ signifies content in Spanish.
  • Review translated titles: Another way to verify the translation is by checking the ‘translated_post_title’ field in the CSV. This field displays the translated titles of posts or custom post types. By reviewing this field, you can ensure that all content has been accurately translated.

Importing WPML Data

Check field names:

  • Before importing the data, ensure that the field names in your file are correct. This is crucial, as accurate field names prevent the majority of import issues.
  • If needed, refer to the exported data from WPML or utilize a sample CSV provided for import purposes.

Initiate Import:

  • Log in to your WordPress website and navigate to the CSV Importer Pro plugin.
  • Click on the “Import” option within the plugin. Select the file you want to import and proceed by clicking “Continue.”

Verify field mapping:

  • In this step, double-check that all fields are mapped correctly. Ensure that each field in your CSV. Follow any additional steps or instructions provided by the plugin to complete the import process.
  • Once you’ve confirmed the field mapping, click on the “Import” button to begin the import process.

Take a deep breath, as the import process may take a minute or more, depending on the size of your data. 

After the import is complete, navigate to the admin view of your WordPress website to verify that the imported data is visible.
