I am trying to: translate from english to german

Using the page translation side by side screen I am opening the site, copying the fields and no translation seems to be happening? Am I missing something here or should the english text be translating into German?

Hi and thank you for contacting WPML Support!

I will be happy to help you with this.

In order to fully translate that page, we should translate all the fields (Page title at the top included) and after that, we need to make sure that we check each of the checkboxes named "Translation is complete" and after that save the page.

From what I see in the screenshot, we are still missing the translation of the page's Title and also we need to check the "Translation is complete" checkboxes.

You can also find very helpful information regarding translating pages that were built with content builder plugins (like Elementor) in the documentation links below:

https://wpml.org/documentation/translating-your-contents/page-builders/
https://wpml.org/documentation/plugins-compatibility/elementor/

Please let me know if these steps helped you accomplish what you wanted or if you still need help.

I will be waiting for your response.
