WPML and GravityView
If you want to have a View that is available in multiple languages, here's how to do it using the popular translation plugin WPML.
Floaty has a View that he wants to translate
It's an international guest list, so he wants to provide it in multiple languages.
First, make sure you have WPML and WPML Translation Management installed and activated.
Without WPML Translation Management, the translation will not work properly. This requires the Multilingual CMS WPML package.
In the Dashboard, under "WPML", click on "Translation Management"
Translation options ‹ The Cupola — WordPress
Click on the "Multilingual Content Setup" tab
Set the "Views" custom post types to "Translate"
This tells WPML you want to translate Views.
Save the Custom Posts settings
In the Custom Field Translation settings, click the "Show system fields" link
The GravityView custom fields are hidden, so they don't show up without a fuss!
Update "_gravityview" Custom Fields
For every "Custom Field" item that starts with "_gravityview", choose "Copy from original to translation".
Note: If you don't see any GravityView custom fields yet, you may not have created any Views. Create a View first, then return here.
Save the Custom Field Translation settings
Now check out the Views
You will now see the translation column(s)
Click the + symbol to translate the View in the language of your choice.
Update Custom Content widgets and fields
As well as field labels
Once the View configuration is translated…
…save the View, and check out how it looks!
The translated View has translated labels and Custom Content widget
But the entry content is not translated; it remains the same.
Let's check out the English version again…
…and it's still the original translation.
Hey, look at that: you have a translated View!
