Translating website with Weglot before publishing

Hello everyone,

A little bit of information concerning the project I’m working on. The client’s previous website was built on Wordpress, and I’m in charge of recreating it in Webflow. The previous website is still up and running. We’re now in the translation phase of the new one.

What I’m curious about is if there is a way to translate the website before publishing to the domain. Do we absolutely need to do the transfer, publish the website, and then translate? Are the translations done on the domain transferred? If not, how have you been able to translate your website before publishing?

Really appreciate your help on this!
