Question Separate styles based on category?

I'm working with a designer on a new site using Elementor, which I'm very new to. I've worked with WP a bit so I know this can be done just curious what the best way to skin this cat it.

We will have sub-sites, based on category, of our main site - each with it's own color scheme and header. So the same design/layout, just those will be different. In the past I've created custom templates for each style then you just chose the correct template when you write the article. So the question is should I go about this that way, coping/creating new templates or is there a better/easier way in Elementor to do this? BTW easy is key here ;-)

Thanks much, sorry if this is a stupid question.

Using Elementor Pro and the Theme Builder you can design your posts based on category and apply styles as required

Okay, great - now - any idea on HOW to do that?? I'm new to Elementor but am using the Pro version. I just want to change the main colors and header image for a specific category (well several).

Uh, okay - so you mean all the guides I already found with a simple Google search? Yeah, found those long before asking a specific question here as I don't see anything specific to my question, that's why I asked it here.

Anyone else have any specific information that would help as I too can search Google.

So does anyone else have any helpful input for this specific question? Some seem to not understand I can search for general guides really easily but I'm asking a very specific question I can't seem to work out.

Anyone else?

Thanks!

the theme builder allows you to create pages and posts according to categories that you previously created so in other words if you've got a category called walks when you setting up your template for your posts you would assign a condition to say if it's in this category please use this style that's associated with the walks category.

I need to assign categories to pages of different languages in order to have appropriate headers with navigation in the correct language.
I do not see which categories to use.
I have tried installing an extension enabling categories to pages but that does not seem to wok.

@hugosnel You can create a category for each language and that may work.Create a template for each page and call the category by the language.
