Hi Lauren!

How is it going?

Im using DIVI to develop a website.

The footer and some others sections have always the same content.

Is there any option for not to translate all the pages and only do it once?

Thanks for your help

Hi Ivan!

If I understand correctly, you want to display some pages the same in both languages. To do this, you can use the "Duplicate" option which will copy the page to your secondary language. Alternately, you can go to WPML -> Settings and in the post type section, set pages to "Translatable - use translation if available or fallback to default language".

Please let me know if either of these options resolves the issue for you.

Thanks for your response.

Let me explain you the issue in detail.

I have a section called footer the text of which is repeated during all the pages. Around 20 pages in spanish and it will be 20 in english and 20 and french!!!!

So when I'm going to translate the page in each language WPML is asking me to translate the same footer content in every page.

Could I translate only once and burn that section, already translated in their respective languages, so as not to translate the same content each time?

It will be like tell the soft to keep to some content to use it regulary

About the Duplicate option you mean that i show in the pict?

Thanks for clarification. You can create the footer content as a Global Module and then translate it following this documentation:

Please let me know if you need any further assistance and I will be happy to help.
