I am trying to: translate categories while keeping the same content from the original one

Link to a page where the issue can be seen:
original: hidden link
translated: hidden link

I expected to see: the same content from the original in the translated category

Instead, I got: an empty translated category

Hello there,

Thanks for writing in! I’m happy to help out.

It seems you have translated the category into the secondary language but the ad isn't translated, it's also required to translate the ads if you want to show it in the translated category.

I suggest using "Display as a feature" feature if you don't want to translate the ad/categories and show it similar in the translated language, more information here:

Let me know if this helps, If that’s not what you’re looking for, apologies! Send me a screenshot of the issue that you’re facing and I’ll take another look at it!
