Infinite is a multipurpose WordPress theme. It comes with the powerful GoodLayers page builder to help you easily design your website pages. Infinite provides many pre-built demos that you can import with one click. It also has an intuitive admin panel for customizing every part of your website. In this tutorial, you will learn how to build multilingual sites using Infinite theme, GoodLayers page builder, and WPML.

Content

Getting started

Make sure that the Infinite theme is activated, by going to the Appearance -> Themes page. Additionally, activate the Goodlayers Core plugin to create pages using the GoodLayers page builder.

Make sure that the WPML Multilingual CMS, WPML String Translation, WPML Translation Management, and WPML Media Translation plugins are activated.

Translating pages

With WPML, you can translate any type of content in your site, including pages and posts. For an easy start, read our Getting Started Guide.

You can also work with a team of translators or professional translation services to translate your site content using WPML’s Translation Management.

Translating pages built using the GoodLayers page builder

Translating pages built using the GoodLayers page builder is very similar to translating pages built using the WordPress default Block (Gutenberg) Editor. We advise using WPML’s Advanced Translation Editor as it speeds up the process of translating pages built using the GoodLayers page builder.

Translating Portfolio pages and categories

To translate Portfolio pages, personnel pages or any custom post type items, you need to follow the same steps as for translating any other types of pages. Visit our documentation page for exact steps on translating the contents yourself.

Translating Portfolio Items

You can translate Portfolio Categories while translating your pages using the WPML translation editor screen. There, you can translate the Portfolio elements as well as your Portfolio Categories.

Furthermore, you can translate the Portfolio Categories on the WPML -> Taxonomy Translation page using the following steps:

  1. Select the Portfolio Category from the drop-down menu and a list of categories will appear.
  1. Click the plus icon for translating a category of the respective language and use the dialog box that appears for adding the translation.

Keep in mind that the translations of categories are universal: if you make a change, they will be updated everywhere.

Translating texts from Infinite theme, plugins, and other places

Besides contents coming from posts and pages in your site, there are usually some texts coming from other places. Most common examples are themes and plugins. To learn how to translate these texts, read our documentation page about translating strings.

In this example, we will translate the footer copyright text. You can follow these same steps to translate any text listed in the theme options.

  1. To edit the footer copyright text in the default language, navigate to GoodLayers -> GoodLayers then click the Footer/Copyright menu item. Edit the text in the Copyright text field then click Save options.

    Editing the footer copyright text in the default language

  1. Navigate to WPML -> String Translation and search for the copyright text. Click on the translations link and add your translated text. Then check the Translation is complete box and click the Save button.
