Translating pages

The 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.

Translating Portfolio pages and categories

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.

Click the + icon to translate your portfolio page

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 Portfolio Categories from the drop-down menu to bring out the list of categories. 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, it updates everywhere.

Setting Jupiter X customization options for different languages

You can find Jupiter X theme customization options under the default WordPress Customizer. When WPML core plugins are active, and the Multilingual Customizer is enabled, 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 different languages.

Customizer language drop-down menu

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:

  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 done, don’t forget to Publish the changes.
Choose the customizer language and apply the desired changes

On a site, text content comes from various sources, such as posts and pages. Themes and plugins may also provide some texts themselves.If you would like to translate content that comes from the theme, plugins, or other sources, read our documentation page about translating strings.
