The All-in-one Video Gallery plugin is 100% translation-ready and compatible with WPML. This document will help you create a multilingual video gallery website using the WPML plugin.
The main goal of this document is to educate on how to use the All-in-One Video Gallery plugin with WPML. So, we don’t go through the steps of installing & configuring WPML. We would suggest checking their official WPML documentation for these instructions.
WPML has several plugins. This document requires at least the following 2 plugins to build a multilingual gallery website.
- WPML Multilingual CMS
- String Translation
Note: Kindly follow the instructions below in the same order this tutorial is written.
1. Configure Videos, Categories & Tags as translatable
Assuming that you already have the WPML plugin installed and set up on your website. Then, the first step is to enable our plugin’s post types and taxonomies on the WPML plugin’s settings page.
Navigate to “Dashboard / WPML / Settings“, locate the “Post Types Translation” section, select “Translatable” for the “Videos (aiovg_videos)” option, and click “Save“.
You would see there are 2 “Translatable” options. This is a WPML feature and you can choose any of the options that best suit your website setup.
Then, scroll down to the “Taxonomies Translation” section on the same page, select “Translatable” for the “Video Categories (aiovg_categories)” & “Video Tags (aiovg_tags)” options, and click “Save“.
Now, WPML would add “+” icons in our plugin’s Videos, Categories, and Tags pages to translate them to the other languages on your website.
But, before start translating the videos, we need to translate the standard WordPress pages added by our plugin during the installation and also the Categories & Tags.
