Make sure that the Phlox Pro theme is activated, by going to the Appearance → Themes page. After that, please make sure to install and activate the Phlox Core Elements and Phlox Pro Tools plugins to enable the full functionality of the Phlox Pro theme.
After that, make sure that the WPML Multilingual CMS, WPML String Translation, WPML Translation Management, and WPML Media Translation plugins are activated.
WPML translation tools
WPML offers two translation editors you can use for translating your site’s content:
- WPML classic translation editor (CTE).
- WPML Advanced Translation Editor (ATE) offers affordable automatic translation, a glossary, spell checker, and more!
Besides translating your site content yourself, you can also:
- Send your content for translation to a professional translation service.
- Create your own team of local translators from the Translation Roles tab in Translation Management and assign translation jobs to them.
With WPML, you can translate any type of content on your site, including pages and posts. For an easy start, read our Getting Started Guide.
Translating portfolio pages and categories
To translate Portfolio items or any custom post-type items, you need to follow the same steps as for translating any other types of pages. Visit our documentation page for exact steps on translating the contents yourself. Please note that the Phlox Portfolio plugin is a part of the Phlox theme package.
Additionally, you can translate your Portfolio Categories on the WPML → Taxonomy Translation page. Select the Portfolio Categories from the drop-down menu and a list of your categories will appear. Click the plus icon to translate a category for the respective language and use the dialog box that appears to add your translation.
Keep in mind that the translations of categories are universal: if you make a change, they will be updated everywhere.
Translating texts from Phlox theme, plugins, and other places
Besides content coming from posts and pages on your site, there are usually some texts coming from other places. The most common examples are themes and plugins.
To learn how to translate these texts, read our documentation page about translating strings.
With WPML, you can easily synchronize your language menus. For more information, please see our complete menus translation tutorial.
Translating WooCommerce elements using WCML
To translate everything that WooCommerce offers, download the WooCommerce Multilingual plugin (WCML) from your WPML account. Visit our dedicated WCML documentation to learn how to setup a multilingual store and translate your products, categories, variations, shipping classes, and more.
Right now, there are no known compatibility issues between the Phlox Pro and WPML.
