Translation connectors


Smartcat connects linguists, companies, and agencies to streamline the translation of any content into any language, on demand. Our platform puts your translation process on autopilot, from content creation to payments.

The extension works by linking your WordPress website to a Smartcat account and pushing the content for translation upon request. After the translation is done in Smartcat — either by yourself, your own volunteers, or hired vendors — it is automatically pulled back to WordPress.

I sent my posts to translation but they are shown as “Submitted” and nothing seems to be happening.

Please wait a few minutes. Data exchange between the plugin and the translation service can take a little time.
