How to translate Cornerstone pages with WPML?
- Preserving the existing translations when editing the default language page
- Automatic Translation for internal links
- Copy-once mode for custom fields
WPML lets you translate content in three ways. You can translate yourself, send content to your own translators or send jobs to your favorite translation service.
Watch a short overview of translating pages built with Cornerstone in the following video.
Scenario 1: Translate yourself
You need to click the plus button for the language you wish to translate into.
You can find these plus buttons in the Language box when editing your Cornerstone page (in the WordPress back-end), or on listing pages.
|The plus located in the Language box when editing my Cornerstone page.||The plus located under the flag in Pages -> All pages|
When clicking on one of these plus icons, WPML’s Translation Editor will appear. Use it to translate the content of your page and tick the box when the translation is complete.
After you’ve already translated, the plus icon will change to a pencil icon as shown below:
Scenario 2: Send content for others to translate
WPML allows you to send your content to translators. Translators will only see texts that require translation, without having to deal with how your site is built.
Then, select the content you wish to send for translation. Go to the WPML -> Translation Management page and select the content to translate.
Click to add the items you selected to Translation basket.
Finally, on the Translation basket tab, you need to select the translators that will do the work.
The translators or translation service will receive a notification about this job. When translation is complete, it will appear back in WordPress.

Translating content coming from Cornerstone add-ons
XTheme ecosystem is wide and it features many useful add-ons extending its usability. Although we are constantly working on making these add-ons translatable with WPML, not all of them are yet integrated (we’re not even familiar with all these great add-ons).
In case of you use a XTheme add-on that’s not yet configured to work with WPML, you can fix it yourself. Follow the instructions on integrating page builders that use shortcodes with WPML. You will tell WPML which shortcodes include texts, making it all work together.
