In this Article
On your Dashboard, click on Admin and then select Options
In the Options Tab, you will see Languages. Select the languages you would like to work with by clicking on the checkboxes. Then scroll down and select Update.
From the Admin Panel, you are able to add translations for all the Supplier and Destination information. You will only be able to add translations for the languages you have selected in Options.
When Machine Translations has been turned off, Wetu will not automatically translate any of your Supplier or Destination content, however, each language tab will be left blank so that you can manually populate it with your own translated descriptions.
If you have Machine Translations enabled on your account, the German, Spanish, French, Italian, Danish, Dutch, Portuguese, Swedish, Norwegian and Polish descriptions will populate automatically. Machine Translations do not apply to Beta languages.
Using Machine Translations
In the Suppliers Tab, when you click on Description there will be an indicator in the top right-hand corner to let you know if the English Description was loaded by the Supplier or if it has been customised by you.
If you navigate to a specific language tab, the relevant translation will show. The 3rd party translation system uses the English description as the basis for the translation.
These Machine Translations will not overwrite any translations you or a Supplier have already entered into the system. Machine Translations will behave as described in the following scenarios, using German translation as an example:
The Supplier has only entered English Description and you have not customised it:
The German will then be a Machine Translation of the Supplier Description
The Supplier has entered a German translation of their English Description and you have not customised it:
The German Description will remain the translation loaded by the Supplier because Machine Translations will not override existing translations.
The Supplier has only entered English Description and you have customised it:
The German will then be a Machine Translation of your English Description
In addition to just the main Description translating for a Supplier, all the supporting Descriptions (Room Types, Unit Types, Product Activities, Restaurants, etc) will also translate.
Itinerary Builder Translations
In the Itinerary Builder, you are able to select the language of the itinerary in the Itinerary Details Step. If the language you want is missing, set it up from the Admin Panel as described above.
Note: Content that is entered by you in the Itinerary Builder, such as Day Notes and Price, will not be translated. This content will need to be translated manually by you before sending it to your client.
Pre-existing Content such as Supplier descriptions, Destinations Descriptions and Country Descriptions will automatically be translated.
Content affected by Machine Translations
Machine Translations affect all Supplier descriptions, Destinations Descriptions and Country Descriptions.
Content that is entered by you in the Itinerary Builder, such as Day Notes and Price, will not be translated by Machine Translation. This content will still need to be translated manually by you before sending it to your client.
