Browse As Role

Some types of content on your site might only be visible to certain user roles, therefore you can’t directly translate it from the translation interface if you’re login in as an admin. That’s why we created the Browse as User Role add-on that lets you translate role-specific content.
The Browse as User Role add-on is only available with a Developer or Business license.

List of user roles in Translation Editor

By default, you can browse your website from the translation editor as yourself (logged in) or as a non-logged-in user. This allows you to translate pages or strings that are dynamic based on the logged-in/ non-logged-in status.

The Browse as User Role add-on, however, allows you to select any user role, then view the site as a user with that role would see it.

This makes it really easy to translate role-specific content.

Install the Browse as User Role Add-on

Install and activate a premium version of TranslatePress (Business or Developer). Once installed, go to Settings → TranslatePress in your WordPress dashboard, and then navigate to the Addons tab.
