Translating layout Sections
Once you have an initial Layout Section in the primary language, edit the layout section in the back-end builder, and follow the instructions below.
IMPORTANT NOTE: For this work, you must use the back-end Avada Builder, as the Language Meta Box is not available in Avada Live.
Step 1 – On the right hand side, under Translate This Document, select the WordPress Editor. This is our ‘recommended’ editor when doing translations, because with this, you have full control over the post/page contents, and it can be completely separate in each language. The WPML editor works with a different approach. Basically, it leaves the whole layout and setup of a post/page as is, and tries to accomplish just a string translation. For our example, we will use the WordPress Editor.
Step 2 – In the Language Meta Box you should see a plus sign (+) which indicates the section can be translated to your installed languages. You will see a different + sign for each of the languages installed.
Step 3 – Clicking on + sign will trigger a dialog asking you about your preference for what the editor should be used for – this section, all layout sections, or all site content. Once you make your selection, you will be redirected to the Add New Layout Section screen where you can continue to translate the Layout Section. This gives you complete freedom to use a different logo, different menu and completely different header style compared to the other language. Here, if you wish, you could use Avada Live or the back-end Builder.
Step 4 – Once you are done with the translation process, save and publish the Layout Section. Now when you shift languages, the relevant Layout Section will shift with it.
