How to Translate All Avada Elements with WPML

WPML makes it easy to translate your entire Avada website. This includes:

  • Pages
  • Forms
  • Layouts
  • Sliders
  • Portfolios
  • FAQs
  • WooCommerce products
  • Menus

And any other element you have on your site – including those by other plugins. 

When translating with WPML, you can easily select which content to translate and into what languages using the WPML Translation Management dashboard.  

To translate Avada elements with WPML go to WPML Translation Management and follow these steps:

1. Find and select items to translate

Selecting an item in Translation Management

The easiest way to find a specific item is to use the Type dropdown in the filters menu at the top of the dashboard. 
For example, to find an Avada Form, set the Type filter to Avada Form.

3. Select how you want to translate your items. With WPML, you have two options:

  • Translate automatically – to instantly generate translations for your content with machine translation engines.
  • Translate manually – to translate content yourself. 

To translate your site faster, and get instant, high-quality translations, we recommend using the Translate automatically option. You can learn more about machine translation in WPML in our automatic translation guide

4. Finally, click the Start translating button to send your items for translation.  

Automatic translations usually take a minute to complete, and will appear in WPML Translations when they’re ready for review. To review and publish translations, follow our review translations guide.

Translating Avada Sliders

To translate an Avada Slider, you need to translate its Slides in Translation Management. Once you have translated the Slides, the Slider containing them will appear translated on your website. 

To quickly find your Slides, set the Type filter to Avada Slide. Then, continue to translate them like any other element. 

Filtering for Avada Slides in Translation Management

If you prefer to manually translate your Avada slides, go to AvadaSliders, switch to Slides, and click the plus icon next to the language you want to translate a slide into.

Translating Portfolios and FAQs

Avada provides two custom types of content, Portfolio and FAQs. Both of these also come with custom taxonomies: 

  • Portfolio Categories, Portfolio Skills, and Portfolio Tags
  • FAQ Categories

All you need to do is translate Portfolio and FAQ posts using Translation Management, just like any other content. When you translate these posts, the related Portfolio and FAQ categories get translated as well.

In Avada, you use standard WordPress menus and place them inside the sections you choose. For detailed steps, read our page about translating WordPress menus with WPML.

Use Different Designs for Translations (Optional)

With WPML, you can create different page designs for translations. This is useful when you want to provide localized experiences beyond just text translations. 

For example, here’s a side-by-side comparison of the Starbucks homepage in Spanish and Japanese, each designed to match the local audience’s preferences.

To create different page designs for translations, you need to manually translate your pages.

Setting Avada Theme Options Across Languages

With WPML, you can apply Avada theme options across all languages, or individually, for each language. 

For example, if you want to maintain the same settings across all translations, you can apply them to all languages simultaneously. Alternatively, you can also customize languages with unique, individual settings. 

For step-by-step instructions, follow our guide on setting Avada theme options for languages.
