Types and Views plugins make it easy to add custom content to multilingual WordPress sites, powered by WPML. You’ll be able to set-up custom post types, custom fields and taxonomy and display them anywhere in the site with no programming.

When you’re building WordPress sites that have more than just posts and pages, you need Toolset. WPML team is happy to offer a Lite version of Toolset, which includes the full Types plugin and simplified Views.

Flexible Content Types and Fields

Types handles all your needs for custom post types, fields and taxonomy. It allows you to create repeatable field groups and connect posts as one-to-many and many-to-many.

No configuration is needed to translate content that you create with Types. Types communicates directly with WPML and allows you to translate everything through WPML’s translation controls.

A Powerful Query Builder

Views is the most powerful query builder available for WordPress. It allows choosing which content to display, how to display, and where.

Views Lite is a simplified version of Views, which allows designing templates, archives, and display custom queries. With Views Lite, you can display any kind of custom content, anywhere on the site, without writing any PHP.
