Translating with WPML

Notes about translations

Custom post types

Go to WPML - Settings and scroll to Post Types Translation

Set required custom posts to “Translatable”

ACF Fields

Every ACF field needs to be edited when activating / using WPML!

Edit each and every field’s “Translation preferences”

Repeater / Flexible content type of fields → Use “Copy Once”

Normal and sub fields (Text / Wysiwyg) → Use “Translate”

Groups should not be translated (?)

Always use manual translations

Make sure “Use WPML’s Translation Editor” toggle is always turned OFF!

Translating plugins / strings

Use “Loco translate” plugin rather than WPML String translations.
