    Translate Website

    Hi,

    I'm looking to translate a website implementing the Momentum theme, but polylang breaks the site, and if I just create other pages in other languages, the header and contact form w/ footer can't be translated.

    Any insights as to how this can be done?

    Thanks,

    Basile Cassiers

    Hi, Unfortunately not. Multi-language implementation is a complex feature and the Momentum theme does not come with built-in support for multi-language plugins. You would need to go with a subdomain alt install. Of course this way has its drawbacks too.

    Hi,

    Your options are:
    1. switch to a new theme which has built-in support for multi-language switching.
    2. If you wish to continue using this theme, then hire a freelancer to implement multi-language plugin support for you.
    3. Install a new instance of WP on a subdomain corresponding to the language you require eg. www.de.domain.com (for German) and there make a copy of your website and redirect German language users there.

    That's about it i'm afraid.
