What is WPML Media Translation?
WordPress Multilingual Media is an add-on plugin for WPML that makes it easy to translate all types of media files on your website, including images, videos, and audio files. It allows you to upload a translated version of your media files and attach them to their original counterparts. This way, when a user switches to a different language, they will see the translated version of the media files.
How does it work?
WPML Media Translation works by allowing you to upload a translated version of your media files and link them to their original counterparts. When you upload a translated media file, WPML creates a new attachment for it and attaches it to the original media file. This way, when a user switches to a different language, they will see the translated version of the media file.
WPML Media Translation is compatible with many popular page builders, including Elementor, Beaver Builder, and Divi. This means that you can use it to translate media files that are added through these page builders.
WordPress Multilingual Media is compatible with many popular cache plugins, including WP Fastest Cache and WP Rocket. This means that you can use it to translate media files on websites that use caching.
