Hello Ofir,
There's no need to use different templates for different languages. I suppose that you're using one of WP plugins for site translation, like Polylang, right? In this case it's enough to translate text on slider on the same template.
How to translate text on slider. Currently Text Controls are added to slides. They contain static text that cannot be changed depending on language.
If you want the text on the slides to depend on selected language please follow the steps:
1. open the theme in Themler, open Slider control >> Slide and remove the Text control;
2.add WP Widget Area control instead and configure it: set display size, Area Name, etc.
3. follow the step 2 for all other slides. Please remember that you need to assign different Area Names on different slides.
4.Apply the theme to CMS and switch to WP admin back end >> Appearance >> Widgets
5. You'll see the new widget areas which were created on the steps 2 and 3
6. Important! Add two Text controls into each widget area: one widget is for English and other widget is for Hebrew, e.g.

TextWidget.png

In this case different text will be displayed for different languages.

7.return to Themler, click 'Refresh Content' to see the text in Themler and apply custom style to it if needed.

As for other other issues discussed before - contact form and changing language in WP admin - I'm looking forward to additional details from you.

regards,
Aileen

Dear Alieen, thank you for your reply, unfourntly this isn't exactly what I need.
Lets say that I want to show diffrent elements in my hebrew version of site, not just the text, for example I want to have slider for the hebrew site and an other slider (with different pictures, not just text) in the english site. in order to do this, I need to have control over the front page template that will load according to the language, this is something I am able to do with other themes. please note that I am using WPML.

in other words I would like to be able to choose the home page templete, straight from the page editor (as I can do with other pages) instead of using the the "home" in the "Theme Options".

Please take look on at the attached pictures.

thanks in advance,
Ofir.

Hello Ofir,
I see your point.
You may add your suggestion as Wish here at forum and let other users vote for it.

Right now it is possible only if you create two different themes and use one of WP plugins which allow to load different templates for different pages.

Aileen

Hi,
there's no need to use any code to use Home Page template at home page. Open Appearance >> Theme Options and under Templates section set
Home: Home

Hello Ofir,
unfortunately it's not possible. The Home and Blog pages templates could be set only under Theme Options now.
There's no way to set Home page template under Page Options.
