I am trying to:
Translate Elementor icon lists into Welsh on English pages

Link to a page where the issue can be seen:
hidden link

I expected to see:
Go to the Grey footer and the Links column next to Penrhos logo is an icon list. I expect the text of the link to translate to Welsh and then when clicked on go to the Welsh version of the page.

Instead, I got:
The text of link translates okay, but when click on link it always goes to English page.

Hello Paul,

thanks for contacting us on this and for the attached information.

I had a look at this element to check the settings, and the fields for the link texts are translatable, but not the links themselves.

There is no field "Icon List: Link URL" to translate the links in the Translation Editor. At the moment this would not be of any help, because the links do not point to the correct link targets even if edited or translated in the Translation Editor.

This is a compatibility issue. Our compatibility team is aware of this, but unfortunately, at this moment, we still do not have a workaround to fix this.

You would need to change temporarily to manual translation and then edit the welsh page with elementor to adapt these links and save the page.

After that you can go back to the Translation Editor mode again.

Please, note that our team is working to fix this and we are working together with Elementor to fix all the pending compatibility issue between both plugins.

You will find some more information about Elementor and WPML here:
