To translate the text written on the slides, follow these steps:

  1. From your WordPress dashboard, go to WPML → String Translation.
  2. Choose the LayerSlider Sliders text domain from the drop-down menu titled Select strings within domain. A list can then be seen with all the texts that you added to the slides.
  3. Click the plus icon to add your translations.

Your slider will then be available in your secondary language.

The translated slider on the front-end

If the translated strings are not showing on the front-end, you can disable the Use slider markup caching option to display the translated texts. On your WordPress dashboard, go to LayerSlider WPOptions, then go to the Advanced tab and disable the Use slider markup caching option.
