    I am using the plugin WP courseware from Fly plugins to run my online courses. Will wpml be able to translate the content from this plugin?


  2. Deniz says:


    I want to build a 3 language site. The shop page should display only those products of the selected language. Default language will be ENG. So when I choose GER in the menu, then only the German products will be displayed in the shop excluding products in other languages. Only some products have double or triple language versions. But only the selected one should appear
    Is that possible?

    • Agnes Bury says:

      Hello Deniz,
      yes, if your online store is based on WooCommerce, it is possible to achieve what you described using WPML and the WooCommerce Multilingual plugin. Either the Multilingual CMS ($79) or Multilingual CMS Lifetime ($195) subscription is required. Please check details here.

    My wordpress theme is translated into French, but a few words are not translated.

    Can I translate the strings of the primary language?

    The languages I want to use:
    – French (primary)
    – English
    – German
    – Spanish
    – Portuguese
    – Italian

    Thank you!

    • Agnes Bury says:

      Hi David,
      it depends on the theme you are using. If it is WPML compatible you will be able to translate all of your strings. Please use this list to check if your theme has been tested by our theme.

    I have a website on one domain. Now I would like to translate content and I need this content to be visible on another domain (but same WordPress instance). I’m also using WooCommerce. Can I do this with WPML? Regards

    • Agnes Bury says:

      Hello Matt,
      “yes” to all of your questions. If you want to use WPML along with WooCommerce you need to either buy the WooCommerce Multilingual plugin. Either the Multilingual CMS ($79) or Multilingual CMS Lifetime ($195) subscription.

    I want to purchase the “Multilingual Blog” plugin… but i have items in my site that has to be converted into different languages… will this package allow me to convert the items and its content in other languages???

    • Agnes Bury says:

      Hello, it depends on what specific items we are talking about. The “Multilingual Blog” version allows you to translate some basic items such as posts, pages, menu items, categories, tags and the like. If your items come from a theme you will need the “CMS” package and also it is recommended choosing a theme that has been checked by our Compatibility Team to make sure you will translate all of your strings without issues.

    I am using Avada and keen to buy the plugin but can I check if I purchase the WPML Blog for 1 wordpress site, would I be able to do the following? Or do I need the WPML CMS version?

    1- Customize the translation of the auto-generated content translation
    2- Translate content of Fusion Builder and Visual Composer
    3- Translate menus and site title


    • Agnes Bury says:

      Hello Zats,
      WPML works with the Avada theme but you need at least the “CMS” package (the “Blog” subscription is not enough)
      1. WPML doesn’t translate automatically. You provide your translations.
      2. Yes, you can.
      3. Yes, you can.

      • Zats says:

        Thanks Agnes, is there any way we can generate the translation from third party tranlsator program? Do we need to do translation everytime we add new content in?

        • Agnes Bury says:

          You don’t need to translate everything, you can translate only some of your pages, if that makes sense for your specific case. WPML allows you to translate only some of your pages and to redirect for homepage for these that weren’t translated, no problem.

          WPML doesn’t have any option to autogenerate translations from third party applications. The purpose of having a multilingual site it to attract organic traffic and the best way to achieve it is provide content translated by humans which will be very appreciated by Google and other search engines.

  7. Hi,

    I want to buy the Multilingual CMS Lifetime, because i am having problems translating this website with any oher plugin. But i would love to try a demo version, i need only one day, to understand if it will be good for what i need.

    Can i test it first?

    Thank you in advance, Lorena

    • Agnes Bury says:

      Hello Lorena,
      thank you for your interest in WPML. We don’t have any demo versions but you can buy and test WPML without any risk for 30 days. If it turns out that for any reason WPML doesn’t meet your needs, all you have to do is to fill out this form and we will return your money. Please note that during that probation period you can ask technical questions on our support forum.

  8. Dear Agnes,

    May I have one question please.

    Can I use the plugin on more domains and on more hosting/sites the plugin with one purchase(Lifetime access). Or I need to buy every time the plugin?

    Awaiting for your reply,
    Take care,


    • Agnes Bury says:

      Dear Peter,
      no, you don’t need to buy the plugin each time. You buy it once and you can use it for all the sites you build.

  9. Totaldron says:

    Hi, I just want to know if I can translate a forum into several languages too?

    Thanks a lot.

  10. Totaldron says:

    Hi, there I will repeat my question again that was deleted, Can I translate into several languages a forum too or do I need to cross-posting addon to do so?

    Thanks a lot.

    I look forward to hearing from you

  11. Anna says:


    I´m building a store using WooCommerce and Shopstar template. Is it possible to translate text in the template? Also, I need 3 different language versions, but one common stock.

  12. Eric says:

    If I buy the plugin and then need to upgrade do I pay a prorated price?
    forgive me, you have probably answered this question and it is buried somewhere on your site. I looked in your FAQs and did not see an answer.

    • Agnes Bury says:

      Hi Eric, if you buy the “CMS” ($79) subscription now and you decide to upgrade to the Lifetime one later, you will pay $116 instead of $195. I hope it helps.

  13. carlos says:

    Is there any popup multilingual tool for WPML ?


    • Agnes Bury says:

      Hi Carlos, I’m not sure what you mean by “popup tool”. Please explain. WPML allows you to translate your posts and pages (and all other WordPress elements) to diffrent languages on your WordPress backend. It doesn’t translate automatically. Once your content is translated, your visitors will access it using a language switcher (a dropdown with flags).

      • carlos says:


        I just wanted to know is:

        Suppose I have a popup plugin .. will I be able to have a different pop up for each language?


  14. Sher says:

    I am interested in buying the multilingual cms lifetime package, however have one enquiry before buying the package.
    Can the system be deployed just to a specific page and not the whole site? Thus, when someone is on that page, they see the “translate now” button?

    Hope to hear from you soon.



    • Amir says:

      WPML works on the entire site and not “per page”. When you activate WPML, it will add languages to your site. Each piece of content will then have a language. If you want, you can translate only specific pages. Even on our site, we have some pages only in English and some pages with full translations.

      If you don’t translate a page, it will display in its original language but not in other languages.

      Does this help?
