I am trying to: translate some fields on the ACF options page following the guideline here: https://wpml.org/documentation/related-projects/translate-sites-built-with-acf/#translate-option-pages

I expected to: translate these texts field on other pages: hidden link

Instead, I got: when I switch language from the top dropdown, translate the text, and save the options page. It just updates the text on all other languages as well.

I am following the exact same method as explained here: https://wpml.org/documentation/related-projects/translate-sites-built-with-acf/#translate-option-pages but it's not working at all.

Can you explain the correct way to translate the individual fields on the ACF options page?

Hi,

Thank you for contacting WPML support!

Can you tell me if you tried this? So creating one Field Group, set it to show on Options and not translating it by changing the admin language, but translate it as a Field Group using WordPress native translator (you can make a duplicate into other language as a starting point) and then translate the fields on the Field Group translation page? I am sending some images to illustrate this better.

Regards,
Bruno Kos
