Using RoyalSlider post slide with multi-lingual site

I have several sliders on my multi lingual (WPML) site. Most are Custom sliders so I can simply create separate versions for each language and embed the correct one in the page.
How do I manage Posts sliders on multi-lingual sites? If I create a slider displaying my 5 most recent posts, I need it to show the 5 most recent posts in the language the page is being viewed in. Currently it is just showing the most recently added content, regardless of language.
Am I missing something in the settings or are you able to help me please?
You can see an example here:

    For posts slider, you may either:

    Disable slider cache on its Settings page and it'll show different versions. It depends on your WPML settings though and might not always work, for example, taxonomy ids must be the same for each language though

    Create two separate sliders. One for each language (switch to a language that you need in admin -> and create slider ...). Then you may use PHP to include required shortcode based on the current language.

    The third way would be to use PHP filter that allows modifying slider posts query

    As stated on WPML forum, you can try adding uppress_filters=0 , for example:

    function newrs_modify_query_for_wpml($args, $index) {
        $args['uppress_filters'] = 0;
        return $args;
    add_filter('new_royalslider_posts_slider_query_args', 'newrs_modify_query_for_wpml', 10, 2);

    Hi Dmirty,

    Thank you for the fast response.

    I want to create two separate sliders as you suggested but how to I make one ‘English’ and one ‘Czech’? They both show the most recently added posts in any language.

    Kind Regards,

    Try add the filter via PHP that I posted in the previous message. (also save the slider to make sure it's not cached, and disable the cache itself by setting refresh time to 0 on RoyalSlider Settings page).
