First of all, I’d like to thank you for this awesome theme which answers very well what I was looking for.
However, today I need my website to be multilingual (English and French). To do so, I decided to use Polylang plugin which is quite easy to setup and use.
My question is : how can I handle the translation in the icon menu? Top Menu is quite easy to handle as there are one menu item for English and another one for French. But I don’t see how to deal with the left menu.
All strings in Ikebana have been wrapped into respective functions according to WordPress internationalization standards, which means that they should be translatable by any third-party plugin that uses these functions. I haven’t used Polylang before, yet from its documentation I can see that it also makes use of the said functions. This page of the documentation might help you with translating the pre-set strings; if it doesn’t please provide access to your back-end by sending login and password to firstname.lastname@example.org (no disclosure guaranteed) – and I will troubleshoot the issue.
I’ve looked at the Polylang plugin on your website, and it seems that the plugin does not offer the possibility to translate all hard-coded strings within themes, only the website’s meta tags and several additional items. I would suggest you try either the Xili Language plugin or the WPML plugin for extended functionality.
