Getting Started

Start by installing and activating the following:

  • The7 theme
  • WPML core plugin and WPML String Translation add-on

If you’re new to WPML, check out our Getting Started Guide. It quickly walks you through all the translation options you can use.

One of these options is Translate Everything Automatically – 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.

Translating Pages Built With WPBakery and Elementor

The7 theme comes bundled with WPBakery Page Builder and Elementor. WPML allows you to easily translate pages and posts created with both of these builders.

For WPBakery Page Builder instructions, visit our page about translating content built with page builders.

For Elementor instructions, visit our page about translating content built with Elementor.

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 and posts.

Click on the plus icon to translate the Portfolio page

Portfolio Categories can be translated while translating your pages, on the Translation Editor screen. You can translate the Portfolio elements there as well.

Additionally, you can translate your Portfolio Categories on the WPMLTaxonomy 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.

Translate the categories using the Taxonomy Translation page

Keep in mind that the translations of categories are universal: if you make a change, they will be updated everywhere.

Translating Texts From The7 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, read our documentation page about translating strings.

Translating Menus

With WPML, you can easily synchronize your language menus. For more information, please see our complete menus translation tutorial.

Translating Sliders

The7 comes bundled with two slider plugins, LayerSlider and Slider Revolution. Read our documentation on:
