I can not translate the header to other languages and I can find it in the string translation: Home, Categories, Purchase Membership, Select Location.
You can tell me how I can translate it to other languages.
Thank you

Hi and thank you for contacting WPML Support!

I will be happy to help you with this.

From what I can see, the header is actually a menu so you should be able to translate the links following the steps in the documentation below:

Please let me know if that helped you accomplish what you needed or if you still need help.

I will be waiting for your answer.

Hello, thank you very much for your help, with it I have re-opened a part of the problem, in the menu as it appears in the first image I still need "Select Location" I could not find the translation method neither in the menu nor in translation of chains, better because it is from a country location plugin. I do not know how to locate it.
I have another problem, in the translation of Arabic language and the flag icon of Morocco, how can I change the flag and put a generic one that is not a symbol of any country but of the language. I have the image. I just lacked how I can change it.
Waiting for your reply a greeting
Thank you very much

Regarding the "how to change the language flag" question, you can go to WPML->Languages->Edit languages and from within there upload your custom .png file to replace the flag.

Regarding the "Select Location" text that you can't find in order to translate it, I would like to request temporary access (wp-admin and FTP) to your site to take a better look at the issue. A testing site where the issue is replicated would also be helpful.

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.

Maybe I'll need to replicate your site locally. For this, I’ll need to temporarily install a plugin called “Duplicator” on your site. This will allow me to create a copy of your site and your content. Once the problem is resolved, I will delete the local site.

Let me know if this is ok with you.


- 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:

Let's first solve this last issue that we were concentrating on and then we can take care of the other one, too.

I will enable once again the private field for the site access.

Regarding the additional question for the new ads media issue, may I kindly ask you to please open a new ticket for that? This will help other users with similar problems to find solutions when searching the forum.

Kind regards,
