Tell us what you are trying to do? (Converting to english and layout should go to LTR )

Is there any documentation that you are following? (Just normal translation methods)

Is there a similar example that we can see? No

What is the link to your site? hidden link

Site is in RTL and on english translation it should go to LTR layout automatically but my content layout stays the same

Any suggestions ?

    Thank you for reaching out the WPML support!

    I just compared the English and Hebrew versions of the product you attached. As I can see, the product description and gallery switch places when changing the language. Also, the position of the top elements (menu, search bar, social icons) is changing too. Can you tell me what else did you expect to change, please?

    When it comes to the website style/layout, the theme is the one that takes care of this. When you're using a different theme on your website, all the elements are positioned differently (this is the main purpose of a theme). While WPML is adding the needed attributes to the a page, the theme is the one that needs to add support for RTL. WPML takes care of the functionality while the theme is the one that handles the layout/elements on the page.


    The topic ‘[Closed] Webiste is in RTL (hebrew), after translation to English it's not LTR (layout)’ is closed to new replies.
