My site's main language is English.
I have created a Portuguese translation from this which is simplier compared to the English translation.
Now I would like to create a Serbian translation. I would like to copy the Portuguese pages to do this.
But I cannot seem to do this. If I copy the page then it also creates a new English translation to which the new page relates to. So then it does not belong to the translations I want them to relate.
On the edit page I cannot change this if the connection is already set. How can I change which is the translation of a page?

How can I copy a portuguese page to become the Serbian translation of both the Portuguese and English page?

I am not sure I could explain what is my problem, but hope you will figure it out.

Also, with Divi I woul be able to save templates od pages. But apprently I cannot import a template created in another language, because the builder cannot see it.

Thank you in advance.

Hello there,

Thank you for contacting WPML support. I'd be happy to assist you further on this issue.

I suppose you are using the manual translator, could you please follow the below steps and let me know if this helps:
- Create a post in the default language [English]
- Create a translation of the post [Portuguese]
- Now once the translation is completed, open the post editor in Portuguese language, you can switch the language from the wp-admin top bar.
- once the post is in the Portuguese language, create Serbian translation and click on copy content from Portuguese language.

Let me know if this helps.
