Multi-Language Templates with WPML

ShopEngine lets you create different page templates for different languages. 

Text lengths and styles might vary based on the language. Therefore, if you have a WordPress multi-language website, you might need to adjust the page design for each language.

ShopEngine integrates with WPML to let you create pages consisting of different languages, each of them coming with unique styles.

Before getting started… #

You have to translate your website pages and WooCommerce products. Translate the pages and products into the language for which you will create a template.

Here is the documentation to set up WPML and translate WooCommerece pages and products.

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.
