Topic Tags: String Translation

Overview of the issue

Using the get_user_meta() function does not work for displaying translated user meta. This missing feature is in our roadmap.


Using get_the_author_meta() instead solves the problem.

To enable user meta translation, go to WPMLString Translation. In the More options section, click edit to choose which user roles you would like to make translatable.

Then, use the wpml_translatable_user_meta_fields hook to make non-standard user meta translatable.
