This is the technical support forum for WPML - the multilingual WordPress plugin.

Everyone can read, but only WPML clients can post here. WPML team is replying on the forum 6 days per week, 22 hours per day.

This thread is resolved. Here is a description of the problem and solution.

Problem: I would like to add a new language that is not available from the default ones. How do I do this?

Solution: - You can add new languages by doing the following: - WPML -> Languages -> Site Languages -> Edit Languages. - After that you will end up on a Edit Languages screen. Here you will click Add Language on the bottom right and then fill at minimum these fields: - Language name - Code - Flag - Default locale - Encode URLs - hreflang - Make sure to carefully select Code since this is the field you cannot change later.

He tries to translate the main page. I have a slider there and it does not display correctly when I change to another language version. Slider is translated and is made in Slider revolutions.

The language change icon is at the bottom of the page
