The simple_translation module provides a user interface that allows users to copy pages and translatable snippets into another language.
- Copies are created in the source language (not translated)
- Copies of pages are in draft status
Content editors need to translate the content and publish the pages.
Simple Translation is optional. It can be switched out by third-party packages. Like the more advanced wagtail-localize.
"wagtail.contrib.simple_translation" to INSTALLED_APPS in your settings file:
INSTALLED_APPS = [ ... "wagtail.contrib.simple_translation", ]
python manage.py migrate to create the necessary permissions.
In the Wagtail admin, go to settings and give some users or groups the “Can submit translations” permission.
