I have a website with Aliexpress dropshipping.
Images for the products are stored on Aliexpress CDN with external url.
When trying to translate products, the path for the images don't work.
On the translated products it put the site path in front of the url: ex. hidden link

What are the best settings for my case, I just wont the same images as for my translated products.

Hope you can help.

Best regards

From what you describe, this is a known issue and our developers have recently solved it in an upcoming release.
See this similar ticket:

The full "solution" will require that the relevant custom fields for the CDN URL are set to "copy" in addition to having the next major release of WPML CMS

Unfortunately, I do not have info about the release date for the next major release.

I will update this ticket as soon as the new versions will be available.
