Slider Revolution is a WordPress plugin that allows you to create responsive sliders with many animation effects, text, image and video layers, and many other features. The textual content of the slides’ layers needs to be translated in multilingual sites. In this tutorial, we teach you how to do this with WPML.

What you will need

  • Slider Revolution plugin (version or above).
  • A recent version of WPML (version or above).
  • WPML Media add-on (version 2.1.23 or above)

Getting Started and What To Check

Is your site already configured by your developer?
Check with them to make sure that the core WPML plugins (WPML Multilingual CMS, WPML String Translation, WPML Translation Management) are installed.

Are you setting up WPML yourself?
Then you need to follow the steps below.

  • Set up WPML from WPML -> Languages. See our WPML Getting Started Guide for a complete reference. The initial, simple three-step setup is self-explanatory, asking you to choose your default language, a set of active languages, and a language selector. (For starters, choose the footer language selector; you can change this later.)
  • Install and activate the core WPML plugins (WPML Multilingual CMS and WPML Media) first, followed by other WPML plugins that may depend on them.
