Tell us what you are trying to do?

I have galleries (Foogalleries) that take the attachment title from images. Do I need to activate WPML Media or I can just translate attachement title in Media Library in different languages?
When is WPML Media necessary to be added to WPML core Plugin?

What is the link to your site?

Thank you,

Hello Luisa,

Thank you for contacting WPML Support. In this case, you can just translate the images title right in the Media Library for every available language. You would need the WPML Media Translation addon when you have to show an alternative image for your translated pages.

For example, we say you have an english page which shows an image with some english content, then if you need to show a spanish version of this image you would need the WPML Media Translation addon to make this task easier to achieve.


Please, let me know if you need any additional instructions and clarifications, have a nice day.
