How to use WPML String Translation for Wishlist Translate?

When running an online store, it’s important to make the shopping experience as seamless as possible for customers. This includes offering a wishlist translate feature that allows customers to save products for later, as well as providing a translation option (For example WPML String Translation plugin) for those who may not speak the same language as the store’s default.

One way to achieve this is by using the integrity between the MC Wishlist plugin and WPML. This guide will walk you through the process of installing and configuring WPML String Translation, as well as how to use it to translate different wishlist elements.


Installing & Configuring WPML Plugin #

To begin the process of wishlist translate, you’ll need to install and activate both the WPML and MC Wishlist plugins. You can use this guide for detailed instructions on the WPML plugin installation process.

WPML Translation Modes

Once the plugin is installed and activated, you’ll need to run the WPML set-up wizard. During this process, you’ll have the option to choose between two different translation modes:

  • Translate Everything
  • Translate Some

Translate Everything

Translate Everything mode will automatically translate all the site’s main content into all secondary languages as content is published or updated. This mode is best for those who want the most seamless and automatic translation process.

Translate Some

Translate Some mode allows for more manual control over the translation process. You can choose what to translate, when, and who will translate it. This mode is best for those who want to have more control over the translations or for those who want to use professional translation services.


Installing & Configuring MC Wishlist Plugin #

Translating Pages and Posts with WPML #

You can easily translate all pages and posts on your website.

If you select the Translate Everything mode, all page, post, and CPT content will be translated automatically. Any smaller texts, like widgets or form fields, that are not translated automatically can be translated via the String Translation Module.


If you select the Translate Some mode, you’ll need to know how to translate pages built using the default WordPress editor or with any WPML-compatible page builders. WPML’s Advanced Translation Editor makes this process easy, with illustrative screenshots to guide you through the process.
