Translate Everything: This will automatically translate content that you publish or update. This mode lets you choose between four options – 1. Review the translation before publishing, 2. Publish translation and review them later, & 3. Publish without reviewing.

Translate Some:  It Will let you choose the content you want to translate. And let you choose who will translate the content.

For this example, I am choosing the ‘’Translate Everything’’ mode with the ‘’Publish translation and review them later’’ option.

After going through the plugin setup process you will be directed to the WPML translation management dashboard. From here WPML will calculate how much content needs to be translated and how much it will cost in WPML credits. 

Auto translate function isn’t free but new WPML accounts come with enough credit to translate a small to medium website. And if you need more credits the procurement process is extremely easy.
