Hi there again,

the second issue with Elementor is, that the whole "Elementor templates" translation is buggy. CSS is not saved if you translate a Section, global widget or another template.

I copy all fields... and the specific css is added in header. But the generated html is wrong! The data-elementor-id should be "988" instead of "3285" so the css is not applied.

hidden link

That are two section templates.

So I think the problem is there again?

Thanks again...

Same problem, can't translate Popup seamlessly.

We wait for updates.

Thanks in advance!

I also have this problem, translated popups do not appear in Elementor. The workaround breaks my site, unfortunately, so I would love for this to be a part of the next update. Thanks!

The issue itself is not been resolved by WPML developers yet. I wish I had some other news, but they have their own schedule of dealing with bugs I have no effect on.

A quick workaround for translating popup content:
1. save Popup content in a template;
2. translate the template content;
3. insert "template widget" in popup and include your previously saved (and translated) template.

Not the best solution, but it seems to work.

Hello, we are on the boat. I would like to know if there are some news on that. Also, we've checked Elementor Pro code and it does not seem to be any filter for popup id, as it is for Elementor theme builder (Headers, Footers, etc.). I've opened a ticket for Elementor Pro to see if they can add that.

This issue has been resolved in 4.3.4. If not already, can you upgrade plugins and test?
