Thank you for contacting WPML support. I'll be happy to help you with this. How are you creating the content for the widgets? Are they text widgets or something different? If text, you can translate them via WPML -> String Translation. If something different, you can use the language drop down at the bottom of the widget and create a widget for each language.

Please let me know if this resolves the issue for you.

Hello,

How do I create a widget for each language?

I would like to translate the footer in English on this website: hidden link, so that I can change the menus on the English site, example of "Imprint" in Imprint ".

What do I have to do for this, is that possible?

Thank you for your help

Have you translated the menu that you are using in the footer? If you are adding the links manually, you can create one widget for each language. In the bottom of the actual widget on Appearance -> Widgets, there should be a drop down where you can select which language to display it on. If you are using the standard menu widget and you have translated your menu, it should work if you set it to display for All Languages.

Please let me know if you need any further assistance and I will be happy to help.

Hello,

I have as far as the standard menu widget see screen footer DE and EN. Below I have the possibility to set "Multilingual" to German or English and to set a button "Display on Language" in German or English.

Have each stored for German and English, but shows me only the footer in EN or DE on !!

Where is the misconception

Thanks for your help

I would like to request temporary access (wp-admin and FTP) to your site to take better look at the issue. You will find the needed fields for this below the comment area when you log in to leave your next reply. The information you will enter is private which means only you and I can see and have access to it.

Our Debugging Procedures

I will be checking various settings in the backend to see if the issue can be resolved. Although I won't be making changes that affect the live site, it is still good practice to backup the site before providing us access. In the event that we do need to debug the site further, I will duplicate the site and work in a separate, local development environment to avoid affecting the live site.

Privacy and Security Policy

We have strict policies regarding privacy and access to your information. Please see:
https://wpml.org/purchase/support-policy/privacy-and-security-when-providing-debug-information-for-support/

**IMPORTANT**

- Please make a backup of site files and database before providing us access.

- If you do not see the wp-admin/FTP fields this means your post & website login details will be made PUBLIC. DO NOT post your website details unless you see the required wp-admin/FTP fields. If you do not, please ask me to enable the private box. The private box looks like this: hidden link
