I'm developing a website that has to be multilingual (2 languages-English and German).
It's a complete website with static pages and a blog page (called blog).
The default language is English and with WPML installed and activated, I can see a links to add the corresponding page in the other language(German).
I'm using atahualpa 2.81 theme.
The point is: In my static pages, there's a left navigation comprising subpages of the main page. I also used custom fields to add additionally dynamic information to the these static pages, so much so that when a subpage in the left navigation is clicked, the corresponding content is displayed in the middle column and also the corresponding custom field value is displayed.
My worry is therefore this:
-With WPML, I only see a link to add a new corresponding page, meaning I have to do double work for each of these pages. I don't just want to imagine what this might cost me in time and energy if I have to restart the same thing for the numerous pages I have in my site.Besides, linking these pages up is not an easy task if I have to add new pages and sub pages.
Please, could anybody there give me a helping hand on how to go about translating these static pages?
I was thinking of something like WPML providing different fields for the different languages so that the values of the fields(content fields and custom fields) change based on the language choice of the user.
That way, there's just a single page but containing multi-lingual content.
Please I need help.
Thanks in advance!
