Dear support:

I have my explanation in this video:
hidden link

Hope this will help you understand the issue.

The Chinese content layout design maybe different than english.

I'm using elementor page builder, I know if I use the builder, then I won't be able to use the translation management.

So what's the best solution for this.

Hi there,

Thanks for the clear explanation 🙂

It Seems you are already aware of using Manual translation with default WordPress editor.

The best solution is to use Manual translation mode to translate the contents.

Go to WPML > Settings > How to translate posts and pages and in the Translation editor options section, change the settings to "Create translations manually" Now when you edit the translated page, you should see the native WordPress editor where you can use the Elementor page builder and adjust the layouts.

Please note: Once switched to manual translation don't mix up the translation with Translation editor which is not recommended.

I hope this answers your question, Let me know if you need further assistance or any clarifications, I will be happy to help you.

Kind regards
