Make sure that the Brooklyn 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. Follow the steps in the WPML beginner’s guide to verify that your setup is correct.
For a better translation experience with contents created using Visual Composer, activate WPML Translation Editor. To do this go to the WPML -> Translation Management page and click the Multilingual Content Setup tab. There, check the Use the translation editor option in the How to translate posts and pages section and click on Save.
With WPML, you can translate any types of contents in your site, including pages and posts. For an easy start, read our beginners guide to site translation.
The Brooklyn Theme comes bundled with Visual Composer.
Visit our documentation page for exact steps on how to translate contents build with Visual Composer.
To translate Portfolio items or any other custom content items, follow the same steps as for translating any other types of pages. Visit our documentation page for exact steps on translating the content 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 PortfolioCategories.
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 “+” 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.
Besides contents coming from posts and pages in 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 these texts manually or sending them to others for translation.
With WPML, you can easily synchronize your language menus. For more information, please check our complete menus translation tutorial.
Brooklyn comes bundled with Slider Revolution. Read our documentation on how to create multilingual sliders using Slider Revolution to translate the slider in the home page and any slider created using the Slider Revolution plugin.
