I am using WPML for my website with two languages: English and Traditional Chinese.

May I know if it is possible to have different font family for different languages? Seems the traditional css code is not applicable (e.g. p {font-family: "English Font", "Traditional Chinese Font;"} is not working on my website as the "Traditional Chinese Font" will change the English text as well.

Please help. Thanks!

Hello Becky,

Welcome to WPML support forum.

1. If you checked your "Traditional Chinese Font;" without WPML, does it work?

2. You could also think about calling different CSS stylesheets depending on the language with the help of 'wpml_current_language'. Something like:

$my_current_lang = apply_filters( 'wpml_current_language', NULL );
if ( $my_current_lang == 'chinese-code') {
    //enque your chinese.css stylesheet.
} else {
    //enque your style.css stylesheet.
