Help with using WPML to translate Email form etc.

    Hey guys,

    How do I go about translating the following to make my site fully multilingual:

    1) "Search" text when you hover on the search icon
    2) "Email Us", "Name*" "Email*" Submit button on the contact form, and probably the validation messages?

    If there is other stuff I'm missing out that cannot be translated through the WPML interface, please include them as well.

    Thanks in advance,

    Alright I don't know if there is a more efficient/elegant way to do this or not, but this seems to work:

    For example:

    <?php if(ICL_LANGUAGE_CODE == 'en'){?><label class="textfield_label" for="contactNameWidget">Name *</label><?php }?>
    <?php if(ICL_LANGUAGE_CODE == 'xx'){?><label class="textfield_label" for="contactNameWidget">xxxx *</label><?php }?>
    would put "Name*" next to the textfield and another if statement for some other language would put the corresponding translation for that field.


    echo $args['before_widget'];
    if(ICL_LANGUAGE_CODE == 'en'){
    echo $args['before_title'] .'Email Us'. $args['after_title'];
    if(ICL_LANGUAGE_CODE == 'xx'){
    echo $args['before_title'] .'XXXX xxx'. $args['after_title'];

    Would put the title Email Us for the contact form widget.


    P.S. Is there an easier way to do this? (for validation etc)

    Hi enote,
    Glad to hear you resolved this.

    The method you used was what I also was going to suggest. To my knowledge there currently isn't an easier way to do this.
