Please consider first:
this is about the tenth WPML installation I'm working on, all with ACF.
All fields are set to "translate" in multilingual content setup.
WP, ACF, all WPML are at their latest update.

I am trying to:

Translate 3 ACF groups, about 24 fields in total.

URL of (my) website where problem appears:

hidden link

I expected to see:
After I set all the configuration I mentioned above, I open a random ACF group and click duplicate.

Instead, I got:
This just blasts ALL the ACF fields, in both languages, leaving me with void ACF groups only.

Steps to duplicate the issue:
I made a backup and restore for the third time, now everything is fine, except for the fields expecting to be translated.
So, just get into one ACF group, flag 'duplicate' option, and save.

Thank you for contacting us.

This seems to be a bug and has already been reported to our developers. This is happening with the latest version of ACFML.

At the moment, unfortunately, I have no workaround about this. We'll keep you updated here on any news about this issue.

Thank you.

This problem has been fixed in the latest version of ACF Multilingual, 0.6.

Please update the ACF ML to the latest version and let me know if the problem persists.

Note that it is recommended to backup your site before updating your plugins.

Thank you.
