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.
For a better translation experience with contents created using Visual Composer, activate WPML Translation Editor. To do this, go to the WPML -> Settings page. There, check the Use the translation editor option under the How to translate posts and pages section and click Save.
WPML offers two translation editors you can use for translating your site’s content:
- WPML classic translation editor (CTE).
- WPML advanced translation editor (ATE) offers automatic translation, a glossary, spell checker, and more! The automatic machine translation service starts at $4.98/month for 5,000 words and provides enough word quota for most sites.
Besides translating your site content yourself, you can also:
- Send your content for translation to a professional translation service.
- Create your own team of local translators from the Translation Roles tab in Translation Management and assign translation jobs to them.
With WPML, you can translate any types of contents on your site, including pages and posts. For an easy start, read our Getting Started Guide.
See our detailed documentation on translating taxonomies.
Besides contents coming from posts and pages on 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.
With WPML, you can easily synchronize your language menus. For more information, please see our complete menus translation tutorial.
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 setup a multilingual store and translate your products, categories, variations, shipping classes and more.
