I am trying to: get translated excerpts on custom post type blog page.

I visited this URL: hidden link

I expected to see: translated excerpts in English an German.

Instead, I got: excerpts in Dansk (main language) only.

Your WPML and its add-on versions are up-to-date.

Which plugin/theme creates the custom post type?
Or you create it by your own code? If so, please let me know your code.

What is the code that creates "auto excerpt"?

Hi, thanks for reply.

I created it by my own code.

Code #1:

//Custom Post Type Bands
if ( ! function_exists('bands_custom_post_type') ) {

// Register Custom Post Type
	function bands_custom_post_type() {

		$labels = array(
			'name'                => 'Kunstnere',
			'singular_name'       => 'Kunstner',
			'menu_name'           => 'Kunstnere',
			'parent_item_colon'   => 'Parent Item:',
			'all_items'           => 'All Items',
			'view_item'           => 'View Item',
			'add_new_item'        => 'Add New Kunstner',
			'add_new'             => 'Add New',
			'edit_item'           => 'Edit Item',
			'update_item'         => 'Update Item',
			'search_items'        => 'Search Item',
			'not_found'           => 'Not found',
			'not_found_in_trash'  => 'Not found in Trash',
		$args = array(
			'labels'              => $labels,
			'supports'            => array( 'title', 'editor', 'thumbnail', 'comments', 'revisions', ),
			'taxonomies'          => array( 'post_tag' ),
			'hierarchical'        => false,
			'public'              => true,
			'show_ui'             => true,
			'show_in_menu'        => true,
			'show_in_nav_menus'   => true,
			'show_in_admin_bar'   => true,
			'menu_position'       => 5,
			'menu_icon'           => 'dashicons-format-audio',
			'can_export'          => true,
			'has_archive'         => true,
			'exclude_from_search' => false,
			'publicly_queryable'  => true,
			'capability_type'     => 'page',
		register_post_type( 'bands', $args );


// Hook into the 'init' action
	add_action( 'init', 'bands_custom_post_type', 0 );


Code #2:

// WP_Query arguments
$args = array (
	'post_type'              => 'bands',
	'pagination'             => true,
	'posts_per_page'         => '100',
	'order'                  => 'ASC',
	'orderby'                => 'title',

// The Query
$query = new WP_Query( $args );

<div id="content" style="<?php echo $content_css; ?>">
		<?php if ( $query->have_posts() ) {
			while ( $query->have_posts() ) {
					$page_id = get_the_ID(); ?>

					<div id="post-<?php the_ID(); ?>" <?php post_class(); ?>>
						<?php echo avada_render_rich_snippets_for_pages(); ?>
						<a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>">
							<?php the_post_thumbnail(); ?>
						<h4 class="entry-title"><a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h4>
						<div class="post-content">
							<?php the_excerpt(); ?>
							<?php avada_link_pages(); ?>
						<?php if( ! post_password_required($post->ID) ): ?>
						<?php if($smof_data['comments_pages']): ?>
						<?php endif; ?>
						<?php endif; ?>
					<?php }
		// Restore original Post Data
		wp_reset_postdata(); ?>

Dat is away so I will help in his place.

Unfortunately, customizing the theme is outside of support so if this is desired please feel free to contact one of our certified partners: http://wpml.org/documentation/support/wpml-contractors/

Having said that, I think the problem is that the language of the ID is not taken into account. Please review this page: http://wpml.org/documentation/support/creating-multilingual-wordpress-themes/language-dependent-ids/ and also http://wpml.org/documentation/support/wpml-coding-api/
