Getting WPML

Getting started

Make sure that the Enfold theme is activated, by going to the AppearanceThemes page.

You will need the Multilingual CMS version of WPML. Install the WPML core plugin plus String Translation, Translation Management, and Media translation add-ons.

WPML translation tools

WPML offers two translation editors you can use for translating your site’s content:

Besides translating your site content yourself, you can also:

Translating your pages

With WPML, you can also translate any types of contents in your site, including pages and posts. For an easy start, read our Getting Started guide to site translation.

Translating pages built with Avia Page Builder

Visit our documentation page for exact steps on how to translate contents build with page builders.

You can also watch a short overview of translating pages built with Enfold in the following video.

Translating Portfolio pages and custom taxonomies

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 on the plus icon to translate the 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 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 Enfold theme, plugins and other places

Besides contents coming from posts and pages in 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.

Translating Menus

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

Translating sliders

Enfold comes bundled with Layer Slider. Read our documentation on how to create multilingual sliders using Layer Slider to translate any slider created using the Layer Slider plugin.
