Make sure that the Jupiter X theme is active, by going to the Appearance → Themes page.
Make sure that the WPML Multilingual CMS, WPML String Translation, WPML Translation Management, and WPML Media Translation plugins are active.
Jupiter X theme is bundled with the Elementor page builder which is compatible with WPML. Check out our documentation on how to translate pages built using the Elementor page builder.
To translate pages built with the default WordPress editor, check out our Getting Started Guide.
To translate Portfolio items 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.
Portfolio Categories can be translated while translating your pages, on the Translation Editor screen. There, you can translate the Portfolio elements as well as your Portfolio Categories.
Additionally, you can translate your Portfolio Categories on the WPML → Taxonomy Translation page. Select the Portfolio Categories from the drop-down menu and a list of your categories will appear. Click the plus icon to translate a category for the respective language and use the dialog box that appears to add your translation.
Keep in mind that the translations of categories are universal: if you make a change, they will be updated everywhere.
You can find Jupiter X theme customization options under the default WordPress customizer. When WPML core plugins are active, the Jupiter X customizer displays a drop-down menu that lists all the languages on your website.
By default, WPML synchronizes all the customization options across different languages on your site. If you wish to have different customization settings for the different language(s) on your website follow these steps:
- Choose the language you want to set the customization options for from the drop-down menu.
- 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 done, don’t forget to Publish the changes.
Besides contents coming from posts and pages on your site, there are usually some texts coming from other places. The most common examples are themes and plugins.
To learn how to translate these texts, read our documentation page about translating strings.
With WPML, you can easily synchronize your language menus. For more information, please see our tutorial about translating menus.
