Hi,

Thank you for contacting WPML support.

This means you did not activate the main plugin 'WPML Multilingual CMS' : hidden link

Please activate it first and try.

Let me know how it goes.

Regards,
Riffaz.

Isnt there a better way than giving out login info?
There is nothing to see other than what I showed in the attachment.
This is just a regular WordPress/Woo commerce site.
I downloaded installed this plugin just like any other.
Sure is weird to have a paid plugin not work like this!

I just gives these errors.
WPML is either not installed or not active. Get WPML
WPML Translation Management is either not installed or not active. Get WPML Translation Management
WPML String Translation is either not installed or not active. Get WPML String Translation

Hi,
your error message:

WPML is either not installed or not active. Get WPML

That clearly said it is NOT installed or NOT active.
What do you see when you go to your plugins > Installed Plugins page? hidden link

You installed it but did you activate the 'WPML Multilingual CMS' ?

Let me know.

Regards.

Now I am getting: WPML String Translation is enabled but not effective. Please finish the installation of WPML first.

Does it have something to do with this attached? Do I have to install some of these?

WPML String Translation was already activated.
Do I have to activate everything on the image to make it work?
I do not want to activate stuff I do not need.

Hi,

You do not have to activate everything you are seeing there.
You have to install and activate only the plugins you want.
'WPML Multilingual CMS' is the only one plugin which mandatory to others work.

WPML String Translation is enabled but not effective. Please finish the installation of WPML first.
- this may happen if you did not fully configure the WPML
- do you finish the WPML setup wizard?

Check and let me know, please.

Thanks for the help.
I think I got most of it figured out now.
I am still having one problem.
On checkout, the "free" shipping method is translated but not the other shipping methods.
How do I get them to translate?

Hi,

Glad, it worked out now.

Translating shipping methods is really a different topic.
Please close this ticket and open a new ticket for that to avoid the confusion and to reduce the waiting time.

Regards,
Riffaz.
