Due to the immense popularity of the Elementor page builder, an ecosystem of additional plugins has popped up that expand Elementor’s core functionality. Here are our top picks of Elementor add-on plugins that are also compatible with WPML.
Elementor is one of the most popular page builders for WordPress, allowing anyone to build beautiful sites quickly and easily. It offers an abundance of great features – but it’s impossible for Elementor to be everything to everyone, especially with a user base of over 8 million clients.
If you run a specific type of website, such as an ecommerce, listings, or directory site, Elementor might not have everything you need right out of the box. That’s where add-on plugins can help! With add-on features, you can do things like add forms, customize checkout processes, add dynamic content, and so much more.
In preparation for WPML 4.5’s release, we reviewed 9 add-on plugins to double check their general compatibility with WPML and the upcoming Translate Everything feature. In our testing, we found some great options for clients looking to add even more great features to their Elementor-powered sites.
Recommended Elementor Addon Plugins
These plugins are not only some of the most popular among WPML users, but their developers also work closely with the WPML compatibility team to ensure ongoing compatibility. We feel confident recommending these to you as solid options for adding lots of different functionality to your multilingual site:
