I am currently working on a new website for my company. As we are based in China, we need multi language support. I was working with qtranslate in the first design phase. It works, but is not really beautiful or comfortable to use.
I saw that since 1.2 Kriesi added support for WPML to the theme. Does that completely work not only with page/post content, but also Widget titles, Menu-Items, text I add in the Footer-Section, etc? Are you aware of anybody who used the WPML support on Kriesi’s themes that I can contact and ask about his/her experience?
WPML isn’t very user friendly when it comes to widgets. That’s not a drawback which is theme related but a WPML issue. The author’s of WPML created a tutorial here: http://wpml.org/2011/03/howto-display-different-widgets-per-language/
Posts, pages and menus work great for me (you need to add a new menu and change the translation settings for it). I have problems with the portfolio(s) though. I’ll ask Kriesi what’s the best way to add translated portfolio entries :)
Thanks for the reply. Do you have a page online that uses a Kriesi plugin and WPML?
Yeah – just click on my username ;-)
Just a side note: The images can be set changed for every language – I was just too lazy to translate & upload them for the german pages. Some entries are only available in English, the portfolio pages in display “Es konnte leider nichts gefunden werden” when you select “German” because the portfolio doesn’t translate correct for me at the moment.
