Frequently Asked Questions
Will my Course Content be Translated?
No. Only the site language on your site pages (like buttons, header text will found on your Home Page, Course Landing Page, Custom Pages, and Default Pages will be translated - see what will be edited by changing your Settings Site Language to an alternate language). See an example of this on the Student Dashboard page and Check Out - Payment Page:
Please note: if you alter 'translatable' copy in the Theme Code, this copy won't be translatable. Ie. In the example above 'kurssit' is Finnish for 'Courses'. If this was changed to 'My Programs', when a student opts for a different site language preference, this copy will remain in English as 'My Programs'.
Will the Categories or Custom Pages name be translated?
No. In the Categories section, the All Courses page is in English, by default. To translate this text, simply edit this copy in your preferred language.

This is the same with the Custom Page name, as seen below, "All Courses" is the Custom Page name in English, so to translate this, edit the Custom Page name settings:
