The Ultimate Toolbox for creating
amazing web sites!
Translate Text using AI
This feature is part of the new AI tools in WYSIWYG Web Builder, but translation is also available as separate tool.
You can use it to translate selected objects or create a translated copy of the whole page.
The AI tools in WYSIWYG Web Builder are implemented using the third-party OpenAI API. You will need an OpenAI API key in order to use this functionality. If you do not already have an OpenAI account then you can create it here: https://platform.openai.com/signup
You can create an OpenAI API key for free. New users get free $5 worth of free tokens. These tokens expire after 3 months.
After the quota has passed you can choose to enter billing information to upgrade to a paid plan and continue your use of the API on pay-as-you-go basis.
The API key can be entered in Tools -> Options -> Artificial Intelligence
The 'Translate selection' option will translate the selected objects. This can be useful if you only want to translate specific items on the page.
The translation language can be selected from the 'Language' dropdown menu.
This feature allows you to generate a translated replica of an entire webpage. In contrast to the 'Translate Selection' function, it won't modify the content on the current page. Instead, it generates a new page that maintains the original layout while translating all the text. The new page's name will incorporate the language code corresponding to your selected language. For instance, if you translate 'index' into Spanish, it will become 'index-es'.
If you have a lot of text then translation may cost lot of OpenAI credits.
Also, the quality of the translation depends on the result of the OpenAI API. So, WYSIWYG Web Builder has no over this functionality.
Sometimes you may want to exclude some elements on the page from thew translation. For example, navigation, SEO or extensions. This can be configured in Tools -> Options -> Artificial Intelligence -> Translation.
It is also important to note that translating rich text will remove all formatting from the text. This is because translated text usually has a completely different structure than the text in the original language. So, that is why you can also exclude rich text from the translation.
The translate tool can be accessed via the Page menu in the Tools section:
