Translating Projects

To translate the text written on slides, popups, and other LayerSlider projects, 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 In domain. A list can then be seen with all the texts that you added to your projects.
  3. Click the plus icon to add your translations.

  1. To display the translated project on the front end, translate the page that includes it. You can translate it yourself by clicking on the plus icon in the list of pages. This opens the Advanced Translation Editor where you can translate the page.

Your project will then be available in your secondary language.

Translating Images

WPML’s Media Translation add-on allows you to upload different images to use in different languages. This means you can customize not only the text, but also the images that appear on your sliders for each of your site’s languages.

To upload a different image to use in another language, go to WPMLMedia Translation and click the plus or pencil icon to edit the image’s translation.

Editing the image’s translation

Upload a new image file to use in your secondary language.

Uploading a new image file for the secondary language

Now, when you view the slider on the front-end, you see the original image in your default language and the new image in your secondary language.
