I am trying to: Translate a menu which has a couple of custom fields added.
Example : svg_icon
I have set this custom field to copy saved the settings, and even synchronized the menu, the custom field is not copied over.

Link to a page where the issue can be seen:
I expected to see:
menu-item-custom field to be copied over to the translated menu

Instead, I got:
Only title tag and css classes are copied over.

What are your results if you go to Appearance -> Menus edit your default language menu and then click on "+" to add a translation , once you start adding the transaltion can you manually add a custom link in the translation menu ?

what are your results ?

also when you synchronize the menu you still need to go to WPML->String Translation and look for the custom menu items and translate them within the String Translation dashboard (see screenshot)

let me know your results please

Hello @emil Nestor, welcome to the WPML support Forum!

How are these fields created? Is it through some specific plugin or custom code?

Please try to add a new item to the menu, then update the translation (with the custom field set as copy). Is the field copied on the new menu item?

All the best,
