Stackable, the all-in-one solution to building websites with Gutenberg, is a multilingual WordPress plugin! Read on to learn how you can use the Stackable interface in your language.
Translating Your Website via WPML
Stackable is fully compatible with WPML! 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, it is a WordPress translation plugin. WPML allows your entire site to be switched from one language to another. This gives you the capability to have a multilingual website. This is perfect for when your site needs to be in other languages 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 to your language using WPML. In addition to that, they have a comprehensive tutorial on their own website which tackles some matters you might be curious about such as automatic translations, and doing SEO for your multilingual website.
Using 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.
If you’ve been using WordPress in another language aside from English, and your Stackable interface is still in English, you’ll be surprised to find out how easy it is to switch the language settings.
Here’s what the block inspector looks like for our Call to Action block’s Background Settings in Norwegian (thanks to Knut Sparhell).
How to Get the Translations
- To get Stackable in your language, simply go to Dashboard > Updates in your WordPress admin. Scroll down to the Translations area and click on the Update Translations button. It should show some downloading progress.
- After that’s done, go and edit one of your pages. The Stackable interface should now be in your language.
What Languages Are Available?
To find what languages Stackable is available in, just go to our plugin page in the Plugin Directory. When you get there, click on the languages entry on the sidebar
