Translation

The word “translate” may be vague. There are 2 intentions in this section:

  1. Translate your site from English to your language (German, French, Italian..)
  2. Build a multilingual website with various languages: En, De, Fr..

For each problem, we have a respective approach.

Translate Your Site

If your language is not English and you want to translate theme terms into your language, here’s some options:

  • Quick Translation: The Fox has a Quick Translation panel right in Customizer for translating most important words: Next, Previous, More, Read More, Search, View all..
  • Full Translation: For full translation of the theme, you’ll need to use a translation plugin such as LocoTranslate
