Tell us what you are trying to do?
Translate a custom post type with custom fields using the Translation Editor. When I get to the editor none of the custom fields are showing just the title and body and a few others see attachment. I tried setting those custom fields to translate (see attachment) but still not showing.
Is there any documentation that you are following?

Is there a similar example that we can see?

What is the link to your site?

Do you mind if I take a look at the post type and custom fields?

I am opening the private area for this.

When you write back, please also indicate a concrete example I can focus on.

Ok - the custom fields are now available in the Tranlsation Editor for those two posts.

Going forward - you need to "complete" open tranlsation jobs...and then update the original post again to trigger the "Update required" icon (a cirucular arrow). At this point, the custom fields that are configured for translation will be loaded into the editor.

I hope this resolves your issue.
