Translations: Stackable in Your Language

This new version is all about translations! We’re now multilingual! Stackable is now WPML compatible and you can now change the language used in Stackable’s interface.

Translations via WPML

Stackable is now fully compatible with WPML! This means that if you want your website to cater to different people of different languages, then Stackable blocks can help with that.

If you’re unfamiliar with WPML, they basically allow your entire site to be switched from one language to another. This is perfect for when your site needs to be multilingual like many European, South American and Asian sites.

You can head over to our documentation page for a guide on how to translate Stackable blocks using WPML.

Stackable in Your Language

WordPress is available in a multitude of languages, and they’ve made it very easy to change the language used in the WordPress backend.

Changing this setting changes the language of your backend.

If you’ve been using WordPress in another language aside from English, you might have noticed that when editing Stackable blocks, all the text in there are still in English.

In this version, we’re happy to announce that Stackable is now translatable to other languages.

Click the “Update Translations” button to update your site’s language packs.

It should show some downloading progress. After that’s done, go and edit one of your pages, click on a block and its settings should now be in your language.
