The Memsource Translation Plugin for WordPress and the Connector feature, allows content managers to import standard WordPress posts, pages, tags and categories into Memsource for translation. The content can be imported either manually via Add from Online Repository button or automatically using the Automated Project Creation feature.
Two plugins are needed: WPML (multilingual content manager) and Memsource Wordpress Plugin.
WPML plugin for WordPress
Your WordPress website will need a WPML plugin to create and manage multilingual pages, which are then used by Memsource WordPress Plugin.
Languages in WPML must match languages of the Memsource project. To support local variations, for example French (Canada), define languages in WPML panel inside WordPress.
When a translated content is uploaded back to WordPress site, it is automatically published.
