I have a post type (created through CPT UI plugin). This post type has "has_archive" true and I set a CUSTOM post type archive link.

To explain:
my IT slug post type is "evento"
my EN slug post type is "event".
The IT archive post type slug is "eventi-e-contest".
I have to set the EN archive post type slug to "events-and-contest". Can I translate a custom post type archive link?

I read an article of 2015 on wpml support that WPML doesn't support custom post type archive slug. Is that fixed? Can I translate it?

And I have another problem with "wpml_permalink":
I have:
my IT slug post type is "accessori"
I translated the EN slug post type in "accessories".
The IT archive post type slug is "".
The EN archive post type slug is "" and it works well.
But if I call "wpml_permalink" to the IT archive post type slug, it doesn't retrieve the correct translated EN slug. It retrieves "" than ""

Thank you for contacting us.

No. At this time it is not possible to translate the has_archive string. Our developers are aware of this.

You can see in our documentation:

About your second question, with "wpml_permalink" hook, this is the same problem mentioned above. The slug of the has_archive does not translate. So returns the slug original language.

Please note that we do not have a workaround for this at this moment.

Please let me know if I can help with any other questions you may have.

Thank you.
