How can I manage my URLs and generate the translations?

In this article, you will see how to manage your URLs, synchronize the content and how to detect missing URLs with the "manage URL" feature

Translations are generated and added progressively to your Translations List when someone visits your website in your translated language(s).
Nevertheless, there's another way to generate translations and manage your URLs without visiting all your pages: you can do it through the URLs page.


1. Add a missing URL
2. Generate some translations
   a. Sync content for a specific language
   b. Sync content for all languages
   c. Sync content for several URLs in a bulk
3. Manage URLs through the filters
   a. Select one or several languages
   b. Most translations requests
   c. Least translations requests
   d. Contain most translations
   e. Contain least translations
   f. Search a URL
4. Delete URLs


1. Add a missing URL: "Missing a URL? Scan your website" feature

Scroll down and at the very bottom of the page, you'll find the "Missing a URL? Scan your website." feature:

Click on the link, you'll see a popup appears. 

After scanning your website, you'll have further URLs suggested. Check the URL(s) you want to add to your list and click "Add URL(s)".

If you got an error message that says "Your website is unreachable.", it means Weglot cannot scan your website. It may be due to the fact your website is not live yet or password-protected. In this case, you can try to temporarily make it public while you add your URLs.

2. Generate some translations for one or several URLs in your URLs list

If the URL is empty or if you think some translations are missing, you'll find how to generate translations below. There are several ways here to generate translations for your URLs.

Be aware that after synchronizing your content, your translations will appear in your Translation List

You can also directly access the translations for a URL in your Translation List by clicking on the eye icon next to the number of translations:

a. Sync content for a specific language

In order to generate translations for a specific language, click on "Sync content for this language" which is the circular arrow next to the "No translations found for this URL and language." message:

A message appears in the top right corner "Please wait while we're syncing content...":

b. Sync content for all languages

In order to generate translations for all languages for a URL, click on "Sync content for this URL" which is the circular arrow next to the URL name:

c. Sync content for several URLs in a bulk

To do so, you first have to check the URL(s) you want to translate:

In order to generate translations, click on "Sync content for all selected URLs" which is the circular arrow at the bottom of your screen. As you can see, it will visit the URL selected and add the content to your URLs and in your Translation List. It means it will add all translations that are not generated yet:

A message appears in the top right corner "Please wait while we're syncing content...". 

You can finally find your translations in your Translation List

You can directly access the translations for a URL in your Translation List by clicking on the eye icon next to the number of translations.

3. Manage URLs through the filters

In order to manage your URLs, you have several filter options:

a. Select one or several languages

You can use this filter in order to manage your URLs for one or more languages. Click on the languages you want to manage to display them:

b. Most translations requests

You can use this filter if you want to display the most requested URLs in the translated languages by your visitors on your website.
For example, knowing your most requested URLs can help you improve your automatic translations by manually editing them ( How to edit my translations?) or ordering professional translations (How to order professional translations?) if needed:

c. Least translations requests

You can use this filter if you want to display the less requested URLs in the translated languages by your visitors on your website. For example, if you need to remove translations ( How to definitely remove a translation?) or exclude URLs from translation (How to exclude URLs/blocks/words from translation?) to lower the number of words in your word count limit, this filter helps you know which content is less requested by your visitors:

d. Contain most translations

You can use this filter to know which URLs contain the most translations on your website:

e. Contain least translations

You can use this filter to know which URLs contain the least translations on your website:

f. Search a URL

If you don't find a URL to manage or you have too many, you can use the URL search bar to help you. Just enter the name of the URL and it will display it:

4. Delete URLs

You are able to select a URL or several and click on the trash bin at the bottom of your screen to delete all selected URLs:

You will receive the following prompt to validate the deletion.

Click on "Delete" if you want to delete the URLs and all translations associated:

Before clicking on "Delete", you can also switch on the "Exclude URLs from translations" button if you don't want those URLs translated on your website. You can find the URL exclusion in your Weglot Dashboard > Settings > Translations Exclusions:
