If you’re new to WPML, check out our Getting Started Guide. It quickly walks you through all the translation options you can use.
Translating Posts and Pages
You translate posts and pages created using the UX Builder just like any other posts and pages you create using the default WordPress editor.
One option is to translate all your content automatically using Translate Everything Automatically mode. This is the quickest way to translate and the easiest way to keep your content up to date. This feature automatically translates pages, posts, custom post types, custom fields, taxonomies, WooCommerce products, and more as you add and edit content.
Or, you can choose Translate What You Choose mode to send content for translation or translate content yourself.
Translating Portfolio Items and UX Blocks
You can translate Portfolio items and UX blocks in the same fashion as translating posts and pages.
Translating Categories and Tags
You can translate categories and tags by navigating to the taxonomies’ edit screens.
Alternatively, you can translate categories and tags on the WPML → Taxonomy translation page. In the example below, we walk you through the process of translating categories. You can follow the same steps to translate tags.
- When in Taxonomy Translation, select the Categories from the drop-down menu and a list of categories will appear.
- Click the plus icon that corresponds to the category and language you want to translate.
- Fill in the translation and click the Save button.
Translating Texts from Flatsome Theme, Plugins, and Other Places
Besides content 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, visit WPML’s documentation page about translating strings.
Translating WooCommerce Elements Using WCML
To translate everything that WooCommerce offers, download the WooCommerce Multilingual plugin (WCML) from your WPML account. Visit our dedicated WCML documentation to learn how to set up a multilingual store and translate your products, categories, variations, shipping classes, and more.
With WPML, you can easily synchronize your language menus. For more information, check out WPML’s guide on translating menus.
