Hi,

Can WPML automatically translate the theme? Or I have to translate the PO file manually.
How can I do this if WPML can do the translation? Is this possible with the version I purchased?

We also want to use different logo in every language. Is there a help file available?

Best regards

Hi,

Thank you for contacting WPML support!

It depends on which theme you are using. Do you have a theme in mind already? Some themes may provide you with PO files that have various translations.

You could import existing translations, but WPML can't do this automatically:

We also want to use different logo in every language.

Which theme are you using? You can check tutorials for various themes here:

Hi,
Although the template I use is not shown in the supported list, the firm that makes the template software says it supports its multi-linguality. Currently I continue site development. I have no problem with the logo and a few issues.

1. I would appreciate if you have any suggestions for using different logo in each language

2. I need the language change code to be used in the top bar. How can I do it.

Hi,

It would depened on the theme, but most often these values are stored as admin strings and are translated using String Translation. See these answers that describe the most common scenario:
https://wpml.org/forums/topic/translate-logo-image/#post-1424601
https://wpml.org/forums/topic/translate-logo-based-on-language/#post-2245347
https://wpml.org/forums/topic/translation-of-logo-image/#post-2121504

If logos are not translatable, some code may be require (as described in the second answer).

2. I need the language change code to be used in the top bar. How can I do it.

I think that these links will help you understand better on how this works and what's possible to change and which values (language code) should never be changed:
