Tell us what you are trying to do?

Hello I bought the single site version of wpml but it seems I NEED string something in order for it to work, or at least that is what all of the youtube videos say. Is this correct and is there no way for it to work without? If yes this feels like very misleading false advertising. if not, you could please direct me to some information or a video that tells you how to install the single website version of the download? Many thanks!


Is there any documentation that you are following?

Is there a similar example that we can see?

What is the link to your site?

Thank you for contacting WPML support. WPML Multilingual CMS plugin can work without WPML String Translation plugin. If you want to translate strings using GUI and pages using Translation Editor then you would need to install WPML String Translation plugin. Please note WPML String Translation is not included in the Blog license, so you will need to upgrade if you want to translate Theme Options or any other strings:

With blog license you can display language specific code using some custom code in your theme. You can use ‘ICL_LANGUAGE_CODE’ constant to get current language code.

First, you should find how your theme/plugin is showing that string. Then you can use the following code to display language specific content:

<?php if(ICL_LANGUAGE_CODE == 'en'){ ?>
                  English language string goes here
<?php } else{ ?>
                 Secondary language string goes here
<?php } ?>

For more information:

Thank you
