About QuickSilver Translate
The word ‘quality’ is used by everyone in the translation world — all clients want it, and all suppliers offer it. QuickSilver Translate offers four pricing/quality levels, and they advise customers based on their business goals and objectives. Which level of service is chosen for any given project depends on: How important is the document? Is it for internal use, or will you send it to clients? How much money are you willing to spend on translating it? How fast do you need it? And, how much review time are you willing to spend internally?

Connecting Your Website to QuickSilver Translate
First, you need to connect WPML with QuickSilver Translate. Part of this very simple process is to request your QuickSilver API token.
Request an API token to connect with QuickSilver by writing to email@example.com or through QuickSilver’s WPML page.
Sending content for translation
Once your site is connected to QuickSilver Translate, you can start sending your content for translation.
Receive a quotation from QuickSilver Translate
You can expect a detailed quote with full details of repetitions and discounts, broken down by language and even file. QuickSilver often also sends 2-4 quality level options (see Levels of Service on QuickSolver’s home page) if relevant or requested.
Receiving completed translations
When QuickSilver completes and uploads the translated pages, you will be notified so that you can download them from your WPML dashboard.
Canceling translation jobs
You just need to get in touch with QuickSilver via the normal channels (firstname.lastname@example.org). For non-recurring customers, payment is in advance, but QuickSilver is happy to return a percentage of funds.
Translating the Rest of Your Site
Once you’re done translating the content of your page, there could be untranslated texts in menus, sidebars, and similar places. No problem, you can use QuickSilver Translate to translate the rest of your site.
