I found these instruction on WPML website:

"To enable the Translation Editor, go to the WPML -> Translation Management page and click on the Multilingual Content Setup tab. Here, look for the How to translate posts and pages section and select the Use the translation editor option."

However in my WP dashboard there's no Multilingual Content Setup tab and I don't know what to do

Thanks in advance

Hello Adone,
I'll try to help you solve this issue.

Sorry about this little inconvenient, we made a few changes to our plugins and we're still updating our documentation.

The Translation Editor settings is now found under WPML > Settings > How to translate posts and pages. There you will be presented with 3 choices, you can select either the classic or the advanced Translation editor and finally click any "save" button in that page.

From that moment you'll be able to use the editor whenever you try to translate a post/page.

Please remember that you need to have the Translation Management add-on/plugin active for the option mentioned above to appear, otherwise you won't find it (just a friendly reminder).

If you still don't find the editor after following the steps above then please go to WPML > Support, find the "debug information" link and paste the debug info in the dedicated section i now enabled for you so i can take a closer look at your situation.

Don't hesitate to ask if you need more details about this.
