Using WPML with the Theme
Updated 3 years 2 months ago
WPML makes it easy to run a multilingual website with a single WordPress installation. It comes with over 40 languages. You can also add your own language variants (like Canadian French or Mexican Spanish) using WPML’s languages editor. You can arrange different language contents in the same domain (in language directories), in sub-domains or in completely different domains.
