Hey hey Masters out there,
I´m using the wpml-plugin and the theme "clever course".

I could translate every site of my website ( but i couldn´t translate the Users "About me" (hidden link).

Another question: In the Session/Course sites you can find a Booking Area with a Picture of me (for example: hidden link). I would like to know how to translate these, too 🙂

Could you please help me with this?

Best and lovely regards

Hello Sue,

I'll help you with this. Thanks for sharing your debug information.

It seems that you are having three issues:
1. Can't translate the author page
2. How to translate Course details
3. How to add language switcher in the top bar

Is that correct?

Normally we only deal with one issue per ticket. I will try to help you with some tips for all of these issues initially in this ticket. However, if more than one issue requires further attention, I may ask you to open another ticket so that issue can get dedicated attention.

All of your issues hing on your theme's compatibility with WPML. I do not see your theme, Clever Course Mod By Charly on the list of WPML Compatible themes. This may mean that there are some issues with compatibility.

* What is your parent theme?
* Has your theme author indicted that this theme is WPML compatible?

1. Can't translate the author page
Please install and activate WPML String Translations and WPML Translation Management and verify that:
- Authors is selected in WPML -> String Translations -> More Options - Translating users of types:
- Author custom post is set to Translate in WPML -> Translation Management

Then make sure that the author custom post is translated into German.

2. How to translate Course details
This information would be included in instructions from your theme author. With similar themes, usually String Translations is used to translate this information. Alternately this information could be translated when translating the course if they are located in custom fields. This depends on how your theme has configured this information.

3. How to add language switcher in the top bar
If your top bar is widgetized, then you could just add the language switcher widget to the top bar area in Appearances -> Widgets If not, please consult your theme author. Language switchers can also be added directly into the theme code.
