Hi Andreas,

I'd just like to ask one more question related to adding en_US language to WPML?
We are UK based, and we are using the multi-currency as well as Flag identifier. So we'd like very much to show the US Flag and $ currency.

We have looked into WPML>Languages>Edit Languages but we can't seem to get this working?
Any assistance here would be great if possible please?

Regards - ADAM

Hello,

To add a custom language to WPML go to WPML -> Languages -> Edit languages.

Now click the button for "Add language" in the right bottom corner.

Enter the information. For US choose hreflang en-us and locale en_US.

More information here:
https://wpml.org/documentation/support/editing-wpmls-languages-table/

The US flag can be uploaded by selecting the custom flag option. More flags can be found on the server at the folder: \wp-content\plugins\sitepress-multilingual-cms\res\flags

Now, for multi currencies go to WooCommerce -> WooCommerce Multilingual -> Multi-Currency and mark the checkbox and dropdown to set USD for different language and as default for the US language.

Let me know if you need any further assistance.

Kind regards
Andreas
