Wordpress theme for my needs

Hi.

I need a wordpress theme with these requirements:

1. Responsive
2. Translatable
3. Highly customizable
4. Fast and SEO optimized
5. With a slider
6. Frontpage needs to show 2 columns under the slider. One with the latests news, and another with expert advices. "Latests news" and "expert advices" are post categories.

This last point is the one I'm making difficulties. Any help?

Thank you.

Thank you, Tom.

However, I can't see the point 6 on this theme.
Also I was looking for a free theme, however, I would be able to pay a little if the theme supports the whole options and has a very good quality (as this seems to have) and support.

Is there a way to test it before buying it (trial period, or something like this) ?

I don't think there is any trial available because if you have the files you can copy it to as many places you like.

When selecting a theme, you can select a theme who is strictly tailor made or a theme like udesign where almost everything is possible to customize from the user menu. In theory you can make udesign look like  all the themes available.

With the included visual Composer, you can make your own frontpage and drag and drop elements on the page.
So in your case you would first drag and drop (select ) a slider to use. (Revoluton slider)
And then 2 widgets (one for each column) in the widget menu you select the post category you want to display, how many postings to display and so on. That's all.

What I found very valuable is the support and the update.

Using a free theme you always have the risk that the theme is not hacker proof.
and no support for Wordpress updates.

IMO, point #6 is the easy part. Point #4 is the holy grail.

I find that Wordpress themes whether free or paid for are not really fast or particularly optimized for SEO. They tend to load various jQuery libraries and other assets on every page whether needed or not. There's no attempt to combine and minify javascript files or stylesheets. There's little support for the use of sprite images so all images are loaded as individual assets. Pages are slow to load as a result. There's also too much inline css. Pages set up for SEO include an optimal number of keywords scattered throughout the markup. No Wordpress theme that I have encountered can do that for you. Keyword density is critical to SEO.

I have read this plugin supports multi-language because is compatible with WPML, however I'm using Polylang plugin for this and I don't read uDesign is compatible with Polylang, so I wonder if there is another theme, preferibly free.

This allows polylang, and is quite customizable, and the responsibe part is excellent.
Thank you anyway for your help.
