I am trying to:

Translate a repeating group on a ACF option page. The option page hasn't been added with a post_id, so I assume its NOT related to

Link to a page where the issue can be seen:

Repeating fields (and subfields) are not appearing after switching to the secondary languages. This only happens when I add the group to an option page, on a post page this seems to be working fine.

hidden link

The group has been setup as recommended by the documentation: hidden link

I expected to see:
The fields and subfields ready for translation.

I've spun up an example setup (empty WordPress install) with just WPML, ACF and ACF pro installed. If convenient let me know how I can share those login details.

Thank you for reaching out to WPML Support.

Please do share your staging credentials with us. I will pass this to our ACF integration developers to take a look!

Thank you!

I got an update from our Compatibility team that this issue is identified and being worked on, although it may not be available in the next ACFML update (it is scheduled for ACFML v1.9.0 currently as we get a lot of compatibility tickets for ACFML and don't think we will be able to fix all of them before releasing v1.8.0).

I've added your ticket to the tracker and will also see if there's some workaround we can offer. There will be an Known Issue page for this soon:
