Hi, I would like to translate the names of media categories, so that when site is changed to a different language, the media filter on the site shows now the names of media categories in dedicated language. Could you please help me with information on how to achieve this?
Thank you.

Hi There,

are you using a plugin to add the categories to your media ? if so which plugin are you using ?

normally taxonomies are translated through WPML->Taxonomy Translation->"choose your desired category" and translate

are you able to find the desired categories through taxonomy translation ?

Yes I found it, but had to turn on "Media categories first" and then after translation, I had to assign categories to medias in other language again. But it works 🙂
