WPML String Translation For ShopEngine

ShopEngine is a WooCommerce plugin that allows you to leverage all the advanced eCommerce features on your website with the most flexibility. 

ShopEngine’s integration with WPML gives you the opportunity to build WooCommerce multi-language websites. ShopEngine is compatible with WPML String Translation which allows you to translate plugin strings; texts that are not in posts, pages, and taxonomy.

Read this documentation to learn how to translate ShopEngine plugin strings with WPML.

Pre-requisite #

You need to have these plugins installed on your WordPress site to make the ShopEngine WooCommerce multilingual support compatible and create WPML multilingual content:

  1. WooCommerce Multilingual & Multicurrency
  2. WPML Multilingual CMS
  3. WPML String Translation

Besides, you will obviously need WooCommerce, ShopEngine lite, and ShopEngine Pro plugins installed.

To use the ShopEngine Plugin with WPML, go to WPML > Settings > Post Types Translation, find Builder Templates (ShopEngine-template), and select not translatable. Otherwise, the ShopEngine template translation won’t be compatible with WPML.
