Hi there

I'd like to translate the copyright text from Avada theme options. You suggest to change the the language while being in the theme options. I don't like that solution. Because in case I have to adjust something, I have to edit all the languages.

Therefore I'd like to use the string translation. However, there the text for the copyright areas doesn't show up. How can I do that?

Best,
Marcial

Hi there @marcialb,

Depending on how Avada stores this copyright text on the database, I can register this string in the String Translator through the wpml-config.xml.

Could you please send us access to your WordPress dashboard (website URL, login and password) I'll check and do some tests. - Please use the private field to send the sensitive data - do not post if you do not see it.

It would be better if you give me a test site rather than the live site.

IMPORTANT We always recommend to backup a working copy of site files and database before.

Regards,
Diego

Hi Diego

I don't see the private field. The website is on staging, so you could easily try it out.

How can I send you the login credentials?

Hi there,

I registered the String by adding the XML code below to WPML > Settings > Custom XML Configuration

<wpml-config>
    <admin-texts>
        <key name="fusion_options_de">
            <key name="footer_text"/></key>
    </admin-texts>
</wpml-config>

It is now displayed in the string translator. But i did a quick test and the translation does not appear on the front-end.

Please note the "de" at the end of the textdomain. It seems that Avada stores the theme options for each language on different tables of the database. So it's not possible to translate it using String Translation.

The only way to translate is using the "change language on theme options" method. But I believe that if you leave the other fields blank, it will load the contents of the original language. So you do not have to worry about editing all the options in the translation.

This is the documentation of how to translate the Avada theme: https://wpml.org/documentation/theme-compatibility/using-wpml-with-the-avada-theme/

Please let me know if it worked for you.

Regards,
Diego

Hi Diego

Thanks for investigating this. I assume Avada thought it makes sense to do it this way, so you can also have different logos. In our case it's a bit annoying. But now I know that this is the way to do it.

Thanks for helping me with this.

Best,
Marcial

Hello,

just letting WPML team know that I would also be interested in translating copyright text separate from theme options. For example it is pain in the *** to make custom css changes and update it in all the languages.
