Storefront, by WooThemes, is a free eCommerce theme. It is designed to be simple and clean from the ground up. Storefront is built using WooCommerce API and can be used with all WooCommerce extensions. In this tutorial, we demonstrate how to translate every part of the Storefront theme using WPML.

Content

Getting started

Make sure that the Storefront theme is activated, by going to the Appearance -> Themes page.

Make sure that the WPML Multilingual CMS, WPML String Translation, WPML Translation Management, WPML Media Translation, and WooCommerce Multilingual 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.
