Jupiter X is a multipurpose WordPress theme. It is fully compatible with WPML, allowing you to build a multilingual site.

Getting Started

Start by installing and activating the following:

If you’re new to WPML, check out our Getting Started Guide. It quickly walks you through different translation options you can use.

Translating Posts, Pages, and Portfolios

The Jupiter X theme is fully compatible with WPML’s Translate Everything Automatically mode, which automatically translates your site’s content as you add or edit it.

If you want more control over the translation of your site’s content, you can go with the Translate What You Choose mode. This allows you to select which posts or pages you want to translate, as well as who will translate them.

You can translate Portfolios or any other custom post type items in the same you would translate posts or pages.

In the example below, we are translating our Portfolio from the Language tab on the page.

Clicking the plus icon to translate a Portfolio page

When you click the plus icon next to the language you want to translate your page into, you will be taken to the Advanced Translation Editor. If you have translation credits, you can translate your content automatically. Otherwise, add the translations for each sentence manually. Once you’re done, click Complete.

Translating Pages Built With Elementor

Jupiter X theme comes bundled with Elementor, which is compatible with WPML. Learn more about how to translate pages built using the Elementor page builder.

Translating Portfolio Categories

You can translate your portfolio categories in the same way you would translate your post categories and custom taxonomies.

In the example below, we’ll illustrate how to translate your Portfolio Categories from a central taxonomy menu.

  1. Go to WPML Taxonomy Translation and select Portfolio Categories from the drop-down menu.
  2. Click the plus icon under the language you want to translate your category into.
  3. Translate the terms and slugs of your categories.

Keep in mind that the translations of categories are universal. Any changes you make are updated everywhere.

Setting Jupiter X Customization Options for Different Languages

Start by enabling the Multilingual Customizer. From the left sidebar, go to Jupiter XSettings. You will be taken to the General tab, where you can switch the Multilingual Customizer on.

Enabling the Multilingual Customizer

Now, go to Appearance Customize. The Jupiter X customizer displays a drop-down menu that lists all the languages on your website. This allows you to have different Customizer options for each of your languages.

Multilingual Customizer language drop-down menu

By default, WPML synchronizes all the customization options across different languages on your site.

If you’d like to have different customization settings for each language on your website:

  1. Choose the language you want to set the customization options for from the drop-down menu.
  2. Navigate to the section that you want to change the customization settings for. In our example, we are setting the Footer to be Full Width. Once you’re done, don’t forget to Publish the changes.

Translating Texts from Jupiter Theme, Plugins, and Other Places

Texts on your site come from various places, such as posts and pages. However, themes and plugins may provide some additional texts. Our documentation page about String Translation will guide you through translating these texts.

Translating Menus

With WPML, you can easily synchronize your language menus across all languages. Visit our dedicated documentation to learn more about translating menus.

Translating Sliders

Jupiter X comes bundled with Slider Revolution and Layer Slider plugins. To learn more about creating multilingual sliders, check out the documentation linked below:

Translating Content From Advanced Custom Fields (ACF)

Jupiter X comes bundled with the Advanced Custom Fields (ACF) plugin. To translate your ACF fields, you will need to install the Advanced Custom Fields Multilingual (ACFML) plugin. You can find it in the Downloads section of your Account page on WPML.
