Translating Views, Content Templates, Archives and Forms in WordPress

Views, Content Templates, WordPress Archives, and forms are basic Toolset elements that you use to build your custom site. They include texts and labels that you need to translate. WPML allows you to translate them just like any other post or a page.

With Toolset, you design your whole site using the WordPress Block Editor. This is why the translation of these Toolset elements is the same as for posts and pages.

Translating Toolset Elements

Use the following steps to send Content Templates, WordPress Archives and Toolset forms for translation.

  1. Go to the WPML → Translation Management page.
  2. Use the search section at the top of the page to find the element you want to translation. If you cannot find a certain Toolset element, try re-saving it first and then search for it again on the Translation Management page.
  3. Select the element you want to send for translation.
  4. Select the languages you want to translate the Toolset element into.
  5. Click to Add selected content to translation basket.

You are taken to the Translation Editor and all texts from the element you are translating appear for translation.
