WPML = WordPressMultiLanguage

schneeberger creates multilingual websites with „WPML“. WMPL is a powerful tool that helps to manage multilingual websites. With this page we show you how you can use WPML as a customer:

WooCommerce (Webshops)

Edit a product in a foreign language

The product description is in the main window. Please enter the foreign language content here.

The short description is at the bottom of the screen, please enter the foreign language content here.

All text fields should now be filled in with the foreign language.

Tabs that are filled in the main language but not in the foreign language are not displayed in the selected language (they remain hidden).
Further information regarding these „tabs“ can be found in the „WooCommerce“ section.

As soon as you have completed a language, repeat the steps for any other language that may be available.

PRICES, PICTURES and SKU (item no.) are not editable in the foreign language.

WPML automatically copies this content into all available languages.

If you want to edit the prices/pictures/art.no., please edit the main language of the article.

Translate a Product Category

When you create a new product category, you need to translate in the other language. In MPA website we have 2 languages: german and french, german is the main language so the category should be created in german first, then translated in french.
To translate in the sidebar click on Products  > Categories.
Click on the new category that you have created.
At the bottom of the page you will find a box Language  > Translate
Click on add

You will be redirected to the french section of the site. Fill the Category name on the  Name field, slug is auto-generated  from the name you will insert you can insert a personalized one, if you prefer.
Parent category it will set automatic click on Add new Category button and you will find your category on the category list.

If you want check if the category has been translated correctly, click on the category.
At the bottom you will find a box with a message „this is a translation of“ and below the category name.

Create translations

News | Seiten | FAQs | Events etc.

As soon as a page or a post has been created in the main language, it must or should also be made available in the foreign languages.

By the way: „News“ is called a „post“.

To convert the created document into the foreign language, please click on the corresponding „+“ sign(s).

The foreign language will be generated automatically, you must now call up this automatically generated page and enter the content in the corresponding language.

If you are already on the page you want to edit, click on the „+“ signs on the right to add this page to the foreign languages.

A translation of a text never happens automatically!

Do you need professional translations?

We will be happy to organise any kind of translation for you within the shortest possible time!

Once the new language has been generated, you have the option of importing the existing content of the main language. This may be helpful to incorporate the translation.

Click „Copy post from German“.
Activate the 2nd option: „Media attachments“, so that any attachments from the main page are automatically imported or taken over.

After the content of the main language has been imported, you can now incorporate the translation.

Please note the „permalink“, this does not allow the use of special characters.
