Make sure that the Page Builder Framework theme is activated, 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 activated.
WPML offers two translation editors you can use for translating your site’s content:
- WPML classic translation editor (CTE).
- WPML advanced translation editor (ATE) offers automatic translation, a glossary, spell checker, and more! The automatic machine translation service starts at $4.98/month for 5,000 words and provides enough word quota for most sites.
Besides translating your site content yourself, you can also:
- Send your content for translation to a professional translation service.
- Create your own team of local translators from the Translation Roles tab in Translation Management and assign translation jobs to them.
With WPML, you can translate any types of contents in your site, including pages and posts. For an easy start, read our Getting Started Guide.
The Page Builder Framework theme is compatible with many page builder plugins.
Visit our documentation page for exact steps on translating content created with page builders.
You can translate texts that come from the Page Builder Framework premium add-on from the WPML String Translation screen. As an example, here is how you can translate the call to action text:
- To set the default language call to action text, Go to the WordPress customizer and navigate to Header → Call To Action Button.
- Add the call to action text and URL then Publish the changes.
- To translate the call to action button text, navigate to WPML → String Translation. Find the text and click the translations link. Add the translated content to the different language fileds and tick the Translation is complete checkbox then Save the translation.
You can translate any text that comes from the Page Builder Framework theme premium add-on in a similar fashion.
Besides contents coming from posts and pages on 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.
With WPML, you can easily synchronize your language menus. For more information, please see our complete menus translation tutorial.
