How to Use WPML for Translating Spectra One Websites

Spectra One simplifies website translation using multilingual plugins such as WPML. Our theme is fully compatible with WPML and other translation plugins and tools. 

You can translate multiple components like templates, template parts, menus, and more within your block-based theme.

This article will guide you through translating different parts of your block-themed website using WPML.

Let’s begin!

Note: Before proceeding, ensure you have the WPML plugin installed, activated, and configured on your WordPress dashboard.

Translate Templates In Spectra One Using WPML

Templates let you edit, create, and manage the layout and design that pages or posts use. Using WPML, you can translate templates such as – home, index, search, 404, archive, and more.

Here’s how you can do it:

  • Navigate to Appearance > Editor from your WordPress dashboard. 
  • Access the Templates section and choose the template that you want to translate. In this example, we’ll go with the “Search Results” template.
  • Make any minor change to this template content and then click on the Save button. This step is necessary for WPML to recognize these templates for translation.
  • Go back to your WordPress dashboard and navigate to WPML > Translation Management.
  • Filter the items by the type Templates and tick the checkbox before your desired template.
  • Select how you want to translate this template content and click the Start translating button.

Your template should now be translated into your preferred language. For example, here’s our “Search Results” template:

Follow the steps shown in the previous section to translate template parts, such as the Header, Footer, or General.
