Multilingual Template Hierarchy


Enables theme developers using WPML to create type-slug.php templates in the default language.

Currently, with WPML, if you want to create a custom template for a page/category/post, you need to create such template in each language (e.g., page-english-slug.php, page-french-slug.php). With this plugin, you can create the template only for the default language (e.g., page-english-slug.php) and it will be used for all other languages.

Version 1.0.0 supports translated page, category and tag slugs.


  1. Upload the entire multilingual-template-hierarchy folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the \’Plugins\’ menu in WordPress.
