This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

Multilingual Import


Sets the language and associates posts imported by WP ALL Import with WPML.

Currently, posts are only associated when they are in a secondary language.
For example, if your main language is French and your secondary language is
English, you must import your French posts first and your English posts
second, otherwise, the English posts won’t be linked with the French posts
(the language will be correctly set though).

This plugin assumes that your import file contains an attribute/column
specifying the language and an attribute/column with an identifier that is
common across all languages.


  • The section to fill when creating an import. The Entry Language is the column where the language of the row is specified. The Common ID is the column where the id common to all translated rows is specified.


  1. Upload the entire multilingual-import folder to the
    /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the \’Plugins\’ menu in WordPress.
  3. When creating an import, specify in the Entry Language field the column
    where the language of the row is, then specify in the Common ID field the
    column where the id common to all translated rows is.
