translation plugin conflict?


  • Sarah Berry started the conversation

    Hi there,

    I'm trying to add one or two languages to my website using this theme, but I am having troubles.  The 'composer' pages do not seem to be translating.  I am using Polylang with Lingotek for machine translations.

    The standard default pages seem to be translating correctly.

    Site not yet live and working on a test URL.

    Hello Sarah,

    We are using Polylang for our demos and it works.

    Consider that you need to create a new page in a different language for adding a page translation (see screenshots). I'd recommend that you have a look at Polylang doc: https://polylang.wordpress.com/documentation/

    In case you're still having troubles, I'd need a live URL.

    Cheers, P.

    Hey Sarah,

    Had a look but TBH I have no idea how Lingotek works, so I am afraid I can't give you any advice. In any case, I'd recommend that you use the classic editor installing this plugin.

    Secondly, please note that, in order to see blocks, template must be set to "Composer page":


    Last but not least, there might be some misconfiguration in Lingotek settings preventing the plugin for translating the block content: http://1103997972.test.prositehosting.co.uk/wp-admin/admin.php?page=lingotek-translation_manage&sm=content

    I'd recommend to check out the documentation: https://lingotek.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/PDOC/overview or, and this is what I would do since it's just a matter of translating a few pages, proceeding with manual translation with the help of Google translate.

    Cheers, P.
