Envato's Most Wanted

We’ve partnered up with OnTheGoSystems the creators of the Multilingual plugin WPML to run an Envato’s Most Wanted for WPML + WooCommerce Themes on ThemeForest.

They’ve been very generous in offering up $8,000 in prize money, so be one of the first 10 to have a WPML + WooCommerce Theme uploaded and approved and we’ll hand out $350 per theme.

We’re also running a Best Item Contest where authors of all WPML + WooCommerce Theme submitted between September 23rd and November 25th will have a chance to win the following cash prizes:

  • 1st Place: $2,500
  • 2nd Place: $1,250
  • 3rd Place: $750

Items must have the following features to be eligible for a race & contest prize:
  • Theme must be WooCommerce ready.
  • Theme must be WPML / Translation ready.
  • Includes support for RTL language, via an rtl.css design file.
  • Includes a custom language switcher, designed to match the theme.
  • Includes a currency switcher in a convenient and usable location.
  • Uses responsive page layout, which works correctly with texts in different language lengths.
To be eligible themes must have the above features working in the live preview demo. Visit WPML for documentation on their Requirements Tutorial page. Any extra features that relate to a specific WPML WooCommerce theme will help with your chances of winning. Here are some examples of the type of files we’re looking for:

To Help You Get Started


To help you get started, if you have a theme, the WPML team offers theme developers the WPML plugin for free! Just fill out this WPML Plugin Request Form to get started. Once you are confirmed as an author the WPML team will be in touch on how you can get the plugin.

The WPML team have also 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.

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?
