Does the theme released before but got WooCommerce support only within competition dates is eligible? :)

Updates to existing items are not eligible. Only new items are eligible.

Can any one guide me please.

How to add compatibility for WPML. Should I have to translate each string and include all language files in theme?

I have checked docs at WPML but still confused about it. Can any experienced author share step by step instructions how to make theme WPML compatible.

Thanks

Have you tried these resources?

The WPML team have created a helpful video that shows you how to integrate WPML correctly: They have also provided a great tutorial to help you get started:

The WPML team is available throughout the event, and if you have any questions related to the integration of the WPML plugins, support can be obtained when you sign up for the WPML Go-Global Program Forum.

Submit your items here: WordPress: ThemeForest > eCommerce > WooCommerce
Is this category a must for contest entries?
Ideally yes but what other did you have in mind?

Any other category like creative, non-profit, corporate etc. category can have WPML and WooCommerce enabled/supported.

In our case we would like to have Non-Profit WP Theme which will support WPML and WooCommerce, will be little unusual to have Non-Profit WP theme under eCommerce -> WooCommerce category, bad for search/sales later maybe.

Please clarify? Thank you.

The event does have a eCommerce / Multi-lingual focus. However if you wish to submit to a different category this is fine. The announcement has been updated to: Submit your items here: ThemeForest > WordPress

Question, WHAT IF… I get a theme approved that is both Micro Niche and support WPML & WooCommerce? Can I enter the same theme for both contests? Just curious.

Yes, as long as it meets eligibility requirements for both events, it will be considered.

Does a theme submitted without WooCommerce support but updated later count? Let me give an example:
  • I release a new item without WooCommerce & WPML support on the 15th of October
  • I update the theme adding WooCommerce & WPML support on the 15th of November
Is my theme compatible for the three grand prizes?

Yes in this case your item would be eligible because its within the event dates. Please only submit an entry form after the update is completed.
