Tell us what you are trying to do? Change font on the translated menu: the menu is translated but I'm getting the default font which has character inconsistencies so I'm trying to change that to Open Sans on the translated menu. The theme I'm using is Divi, the font for the menu is Quicksand. There doesn't seem to be the opportunity to change the translated menu within Divi's Theme Customizer so I wondered if this could be done within WPML?

Is there any documentation that you are following? No

Is there a similar example that we can see? No

What is the link to your site? hidden link

Hi and thank you for contacting WPML Support!

I will be happy to help you with this.

From what I can see, on the translated area of the site (secondary language), there is the CSS below that is active:

body, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, input, textarea, select {
    font-family: 'cwTeXFangSong',serif;

I can also see this CSS being used for the menu on the default-language:

#main-header, #et-top-navigation {
    font-family: 'Quicksand',Helvetica,Arial,Lucida,sans-serif;

Can you please go to Appearance > Customize > CSS and add the following CSS below then save:

#main-header, #et-top-navigation {
    font-family: 'Quicksand',Helvetica,Arial,Lucida,sans-serif !important;

Now please see if there is any difference inside the menu in the secondary language.

Please let me know how that goes and if it does what you want.

Kind regards,
Mihai Apetrei
