Keyboard Shortcuts in Translation Editor

To speed up the translation process, you can use the following keyboard shortcuts in TranslatePress Editor.

  • CTRL ( ⌘ ) + S – Save translation for the currently edited strings
  • CTRL ( ⌘ ) + ALT + Z – Discard all changes for the currently edited strings
  • CTRL ( ⌘ ) + ALT + (Right Arrow) – Navigate to the next string to translate
  • CTRL ( ⌘ ) + ALT + (Left Arrow) – Navigate to the previous string to translate

Translators can save time by using the keyboard to perform key actions instead of using the mouse cursor to click the corresponding action buttons.
