Views, Content Templates, and WordPress Archives are basic Toolset elements that you use to build your custom site. They include text and fields 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.

The only thing you have to do beforehand is to make Toolset elements translatable.

Translating Toolset elements yourself

To translate Content Templates and WordPress archives yourself, edit them and in the Language section of the right sidebar, click the plus icon for the language you want to translate into.
