Support » Plugin: Social Share Icons & Social Share Buttons » language / country adaptation

    Hello, I have a blog in 4 different languages and I would like to have different profiles for a few social media accounts depending on the language.

    This is, I have one profile for english customers, another one for german and a third one for Spanish. I would like that, depending on the language the customer is using, they can see one profile or the other.

    I am using WPML.

    Thanks a lot

    Thanks Guillermo for your question.

    I am not entirely sure I understand the question, and what you mean by different profiles. How will it show on the front end – can you give some specific examples?

    Let’s put the twitter example. I have 3 profiles: spanish, german and english. I want to interact in each of them but I don’t want to mix german users and english users of course!

    I am translating all posts into this 3 languages and the 4th one (french) will be automated. Not a priority now.

    I want to put social profiles in the home page with a link to my profile in each social media network (i.e. in the english page a link to my twitter generic english profile) . Also, at the end of each post I want to put the share button and it also has to be linked to the specific language version.

    This is, if a user speaks german, I want my blog and your plugin to display the relevant social media links referred to that language. If they speak spanish, the ones related to Spanish. I want to customize the link to the social media depending on the language of the user.

    I am using WPML for multilingual management.

    If you say depending on the language of the user: how do we know the language of the user? The icons should be on the same urls, or are they different?

    different url. for spanish it is for german it is

    they pick the language in a language selector at the top.
