Hello. I have used WPML to create a French translation of my website (hidden link). On my home page is a series of featured images, each with its own alt text (see attached screenshot hh-alt-text.jpg). This alt text is in English.
How do I ensure this alt text is translated into French on my French home page?

Thanks.

Hello,

Are you using WPML Media ?

if not you can get it from the downloads page
=> https://wpml.org/account/downloads/

If you want to translate Alt Texts and Titles, you should:
- Go to Media Library
- In the top bar menu, select your language of interest
- Select an image and edit its attributes.

Actually when you change language on the top menu, you are also changing language for Media library, so, every change you make in your images will be reflected in your selected language.

You can find more information here:
