Getting Started and What to Check
Make sure that Page Builder SiteOrigin is activated, by going to the Plugins page.
The SiteOrigin Widgets Bundle plugin is also recommended as it gives you access to the most common widgets. Remember to activate the Widgets you need, to use from Plugins -> SiteOrigin Widgets:
Make sure that the WPML Multilingual CMS, WPML String Translation, WPML Translation Management, and WPML Media Translation plugins are activated.
Follow the steps in the WPML beginner’s guide to verify that your setup is correct.
Navigate to the WPML -> Translation Management page and click on the Multilingual Content Setup. In the How to translate posts and pages section, select the Create translations manually option and then click Save.
Translating your pages built with SiteOrigin (Widget-based)
1.Click on the Edit link for the page that you want to translate.
2.In the Language meta-box, select the Duplicate checkbox, and then click on the Duplicate button. This will duplicate the page in the selected secondary language.
3.Click on the pencil icon to edit the page in the other language and add your translated text to that duplicated page.
4.On the editing page of the duplicated page, click Translate independently in the Language box.
5.Edit the elements on your page to add the translated text. In the example below, we selected the Circle Icon. Translate your Circle Icon to Spanish and click on Done. Do this for all the elements on the page.
6.Once you complete translating all the elements on the page, click on the Update button.
Note that it’s possible to use the Live Editor as well.
