Hello, help me please, I need to publish the website today. Thanks in advance!!!!September 28, 2012 at 6:19 am #92127
You need to create different/seperate templates – one for each language. Afterwards apply the templates to the pages – eg to the English and German version of an entry/page.

Thank you, I’m in contact with them also, but I’m sure you can help me more because you are selling the theme as multilanguage and compatible with the wpml plugin while the plugin developers don’t know your theme as well.
Thank you and looking forward to the solutions!September 28, 2012 at 9:18 pm #92133
WPML is not the type of plugin that you activate and it takes care of everything else. You need to first set it up and configure it. Also you are aware that there are multiple versions of the plugin (cms & blog) with completely different functionality? Which version are you currently using? Is your site being setup as a blog or a cms?
Please refer to the http://wpml.org/documentation/getting-started-guide/
1) After you activate the plugin, you click the configure link right under its name in the Plugin section of the backend. You select the current language, the languages which you wish to translate into, then you select the language switcher options that suits your website, and click Finish.
2) Now on top of the backend you see the language dropdown box showing the root language of the site – English lets say, and I selected Spanish as the translation( for this example). You now have two completely different backends in your site which are *independent of one another*, an English and a Spanish. So you first create a home page, or a portfolio page,or any page in English backend and save it. Then you use the language dropdown box on top in the backend to switch to the Spanish version of the backend , and *re-create* or import etc.. the Spanish versions of your English pages. You will notice in the backend the menu link ‘Flagship’ will become ‘Flagship EN’ and will change to ‘Flagship ES’ when you use the dropdown to enter the various versions.
So, to answer your question. , If you have an English (root) template which you applied to a page you designated as your homepage. you would switch to Spanish (or your language choice) . But you would *NOT* see those templates nor the pages you just made because those are in the ‘English backend’. You would have to recreate them all over in the Spanish version. Then create a new Spanish page, apply the Spanish homepage template to it, and link it to the English home page via the dropdown in the Add Page or Add Post pages.
If you’ve done all the above, and linked the translated version to the root version of the page and still are not seeing anything, please try re-installing the plugin and do speak to the WPML support staff and I am certain between the two support teams we will get you running smoothly.

Thank you Nick! I have the cms version I did the cofiguration and everything but didn’t know that I have 2 backends, now everything is clear and works fine!
Thank you very much, I really appreciate your help!September 29, 2012 at 3:20 pm #92135
