Symptoms

When duplicating a page created using Elementor to any of the secondary languages on your website, the page layout won’t be copied to the secondary language.

Workaround

To duplicate a page to any of the secondary languages on your website follow the steps below:

  1. Go to the page editing screen and click on the plus icon found in the language box.
  2. Based on your translation editor of choice, this will open the Classic Translation Editor (CTE) or the Advanced Translation Editor(ATE).
    • To copy the original text fields in the CTE click the Copy all fields from original button, mark all fields as Translation is complete then Save & Close.
    • To copy the original text fields in the ATE click on the copy original text to translation icon, click the save and complete icon, then click the Finish button.

  1. Hello,

    As a workaround it works, however, when there are a lot of fields to translate, a checkbox to mark all fields as “Translation is complete” at once would be very welcome.

    Anyway, I expect that a forthcoming WPML update will include full working duplication for Elementor pages like for any other page.

    Here follow what Elementor tech support told me about this matter a few days ago:

    “Our senior customer support personnel has informed us that our developers have worked with the development team for WPML to resolve this issue which enlightened us on a final filter needed for WPML which was introduced in Elementor Pro 2.2.

    Our development team has created a hook in Elementor for WPML to utilize to add compatibility for Elementor Pro but they have not utilized this hook up until this time.”

    I look forward to your news.

    Thank you very much for your attention.

    Best regards.
