When using WPML’s Advanced Translation Editor, your translations may appear “stuck”. You might also see a message saying “WPML didn’t manage to translate this page” or “WPML tried to translate this page three times and failed”.

Our developers are aware of this situation. For the time being, you can solve this issue with the following workarounds based on which translation mode you use.

  • If you use Translate Everything mode, you can simply edit your stuck pages by making a minor change, such as adding a space or a word. This will reset the pages’ translation status and assign them a new Job ID for automatic translation.
  • If you use Translate Some mode, go to WPMLTranslation Management and click the Jobs tab. Cancel the stuck jobs. Then, edit the page or post that was stuck and make a small change to the title. Save the change and submit the page or post for translation again.

If these steps don’t solve your issue, please do not hesitate to open a ticket in our Support forum.
