Hi guys - I am in urgent need to translate one of my sites and am running into roadblocks. The site is www.voicestudiopro.com and if you look you'll see that i'm using a lot of DMS fun. RevSlider, iBox, ProPricing, iCallout and then just random TextAreas. I've bought and installed WPML which would probably do a great job on a standard WordPress install without a great platform like DMS but with DMS there are no obvious ways to just input the translated versions of the text within the aforementioned components/sections.

Has anyone attempted this before and can lend some guidance? I'm really at this point trying to find where i can even see my primary english versions within WPML in order to provide the translations. Alternatively i would probably duplicate a page as a template and customize it from scratch in the alternate language i guess.

Unfortunately, I have no experience with WPML as it is a premium plugin. However, we do have other users who have used this plugin without any issue. We also have users who find PolyLang a better alternative.

Is it my understanding (I could be wrong here) that WPML creates multiple instances of the same page and, therefore, you would be able to create different translations for the same page?

Please search our forums, before posting!

      We are working on a 2 languages site (https://liguecardioliga.be) with wpml, and lately the call of a category in the loops section (and all the sections requiring a category to select posts) doesn't work in the translated language. It worked well until recently so I wonder if it's because of a recent update (wordpress, wpml, pagelines, a plugin?). Anyone has the same problem? a solution?

      I am trying to get WPML working on my Pagelines instance. I am interested in getting help from anyone that has tried, especially @claudedagenais who seams to have it working.
      My issues are:
      How to translate header and footer How to get the menu to show all nav even if not translated How to get non-translated posts /pages to show up when only in default language - true for Masonry, Newsfront, and other list showing items... I have zero skills in PHP and its my site for my company. 
      note: Multi-lingual is a business decision and is required. I have vetted all of the multi-lingual options and the only one fit for purpose is WPML.

      How can you set the translations with platform5, the parts that are not in pages or posts? Texts and images…

      Hello, we have this strange new problem with DMS2 when used with WPML. We can save our change to the section only in the main language. When trying to edit DMS sections in the other languages DMS won't let us save. The work around is to change the main language in WPML to the language you want to change and switch back afterward to the language you really want to be the main one.
      This is a new problem that did not exist before a few days ago. We are unsure if it is linked to the Wordpress 4.4 update, the WPML 3.3.3 Update or the DMS update (!) that we did recently. We tried unsuccessfully deactivating everything (except WPML of course) including our child theme in a test environment. We can't turn off the DMS editor either from the other language pages. Some of the websites we are having this problem with are  http://www.artssutton.com/ , http://journalletour.com/, ...

      I am using pageline (v2.2.1.1) and WPML (3.3.3). WP 4.3.1
      Here is the problem: when I set the language to be a path like this:
      all [pl_site_url] will become above, which means, if you are using images in textbox, or pageheader, the full URL would become
      which is wrong.
      Furthermore, if the site requires AJAX, the calling URL becomes:
      which is also wrong.
      Now you may want me to use ?lang=zh-hant instead of using /zh-hant/, but it would become
      which is also wrong.
      Can you please tell me how to fix it?
      Thank you very much in advance for your help.
