- Imports languages and WPML options (when the same options exist in Falang).
- Imports posts and terms languages as well as translations (including for custom post types and custom taxonomies).
- Imports multilingual nav menus.
- Imports strings translations (not yet).
- Does not delete WPML data.
Although WPML data should not be corrupted, as Falang data are created without deleting anything, make a database backup before proceeding.
How to proceed?
- De-activate WPML
- Activate Falang and WPML to Falang. Do not create any language with Falang (they will be imported).
- Go to Tools -> WPML Importer.
- If all checks are passed, you can click on ‘Import Languages’.
- If the WPML languages are imported, you can click on ‘Import’.
- De-activate WPML to Falang (You can even delete it).
- Setup a language switcher either as a widget or in nav menus.
- Check that everything is OK.
- If something went wrong and you want to revert to WPML, you can delete Falang using the red link in the Plugins table (If you want to delete all data created for Falang, you need to set the option in Falang > Settings;` before Delete Translations on uninstall) and then re-activate WPML.
