I am trying to: Translate my English site to Korean, which is fine in terms of being able to be translated.

Link to a page where the issue can be seen: hidden link

I expected to see: a beautiful Korean font

Instead, I got: a font that has odd bold, spacing, and is quite cartoonish.

The same issue happened with Chinese and I found the following CSS on WPML support form and it worked perfectly (except for the name field in the contact form - for some reason...)

html[lang="zh-hans"] body,
html[lang="zh-hans"] h1,
html[lang="zh-hans"] h2,
html[lang="zh-hans"] h3,
html[lang="zh-hans"] h4,
html[lang="zh-hans"] h5,
html[lang="zh-hans"] h6 {
font-family: "Open Sans",Arial,sans-serif!important;

I tried doing the same for Korean by replacing zh-hans with ko but that didn't work

Hello @matthewf-11, welcome to the WPML support Forum!

For the Korean language, you need to use "ko-KR". e.g.

html[lang="ko-KR"] body

Please let me know if it worked for you.

All the best,
