I’ve been doing some digging around the support forum and came across a thread regarding Translating Replete Theme with WPML.
The answer that was given was one that left me a bit concerned and confused. It was an old thread so I’m posting a fresh request with hope I’ll get some much needed guidance.
This is the post I made on the old thread and I’m copy/pasting it. Hope it makes sense but in a nutshell I’m looking for info on properly utilizing the WPML plugins with replete. Here’s the link to the older thread for your reference
1) You used the phrase “each template will need to be re-made for each language”
That is frightening to me considering the number of different languages I’ll be using in addition to the fact that I have over 13000 products most of which should have corresponding images in my imported catalog file.
When you say “Re-made” what exactly does that entail?
2) The Woocommerce shop pages, catalog and products – will I need to “re-make” all of the woocommerce pages, catalog, products, images, tags, categories etc..?
I may be getting ahead of myself here so for the moment I’ll stop and see what your reply is to the 2 questions above before adding other questions that may be (hopefully are) addressed in your response
Any advice would be greatly appreciated as I’m ready to get into the translation phase and rather than try and figure out the proper way to do this and end up with my head spinning, hoping for some much needed input :)February 22, 2013 at 9:32 am #108210
this is not official reply, anyway..for the woocommerce WPML you will definetely need to create / copy each category and page manually.
for the widgets you will also need plug in WIDGET LOGIC to assign that widget for each language translation.
means, in the template builder you assign the widget and add ICL_LANGUAGE_CODE == ‘n’ where “n” is the shortcut of the language.
So if you run EN / IT / RU then you will need 3 widgets for each language where ICL_LANGUAGE_CODE == ‘n’ will be in each widget.
there is also currently no template builder copy function, so you create the template in EN first, then switch to RU and recreate that template again from scratch. If you need need some help with WPML please contact me.

UGH this is going to be a nightmare lol
There has to be an easier way…
I’ll most definitely have questions for you.
Thank you for replying :)February 23, 2013 at 4:46 am #108212
First, even if its on an old thread, we will see it so no need to make a new post. It just clutters up the forums and also makes it harder for us to answer and not duplicate answers.
Read over the basic how-to from WPML to get a better idea of what it means to make a site multilingual with the plugin: http://wpml.org/faq/how-do-i-make-my-theme-multilingual/
Specifically: “WPML creates a new page for each translation and links all translated pages together, so that visitors can switch between them.”
