Getting started

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

Make sure that the WPML Multilingual CMS, WPML String Translation, WPML Translation Management, and WPML Media Translation plugins are activated.

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.

Translating Portfolio, Clients, and Testimonials

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 Typescan be translated while translating your pages, on the Translation Editor screen. There, you can translate the Portfolio elements as well as your Portfolio Types.

Additionally, you can translate your Portfolio Types on the WPML -> Taxonomy Translation page. Select Portfolio Type 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 Virtue theme, plugins, and other places.

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.

Translating Slider Revolution

The Virtue theme comes with the powerful Slider Revolution plugin. We have dedicated documentation that explains how to translate sliders built with Slider Revolution.

Translating menus

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