Could you send me some screenshots of the things you would like to fix so I can take a look at them?

Please know that if the problem is with the styling i may not be able to help since that is considered custom coding and it goes beyond the scope of this support (plus, that's really the theme's territory) , but I can still try to help you out.

Let me know please so I can see what can be done.

Hello,

I recorded a video so you can see what you can do with WPML where i also explain a few things that are good to know. --> hidden link

The theme doesn't seem to be WPML compatible yet i see it can work with it, it just means that some features might not work as expected or they won't work at all.

- I suggest that you try to first talk with your developer/theme author so he can get in touch with us and make the theme compatible free of charge by filling the following form:
https://wpml.org/documentation/theme-compatibility/go-global-program/

- I also suggest you read our getting started guide so you know how the plugin works and what you can do with it: https://wpml.org/documentation/getting-started-guide/ (you can also find an arabic version in that link)

- If you want to add the language switcher somewhere else on your theme, then you can use our WPML shortcode and handle its customization through WPML > Language > Custom Language Switcher: https://wpml.org/documentation/support/wpml-coding-api/shortcodes/

I hope that helps you get started, if you need to add anything in your theme, then please ask your developer about it or in case you're the developer, make a backup first and read this documentation about the things you should know: https://wpml.org/documentation/support/

Regards.

I do not want woocommerce support but i want the theme to just translate the basic pages of the website. So basically what i want is a switcher to work fine and the css for arabic is rtl.css in which i will make basic changes if any.

In arabic languagethe css it should use is rtl.css

The site is live and i have no problem if you can take a backup of the theme file and just set for me the switcher. with arabic and english language. you can copy same content of english in arabic language which i will change later. if you want ftp access here it is.

The last step in the video can you keep it like that. pretty much solved the problem except the header menu which should start from right (home, about us and all other menu.)

i will try to follow the steps and get it all done.

thanks.

Hi, i left the footer menu as it was on the video, that way you can start using it for now.

Let me know how it goes now and don't hesitate to ask if you need help with anything else.

Regards.
