I am trying to:
translate elementor page sections with background images, need different filename for each language.

I expected to see:
Images picked up from translated media module or sth else :))

Instead, I got:

image filename from basic language.

Welcome to WPML Support.
I'll do my best to help you solve this issue.

Could you tell me to which widgets are you referring to?

I'm asking you this because i see you have another plugin that seems to add something related to what you're asking (i.e: Style Kits for Elementor)

Then, if images is what you want to translate, Try to use WPML Media translation and translate them there. then, make a small modification to the page in question (like an extra character to the title) and translate/update the translation again.

To know how to work with Media Translation, you can check this documentation here:

Let me know how it goes to understand better how to proceed.

I'm referring to:
hidden link

Layout sections can have background images.

For the background, I'm using image translated with the media translation module, where I'm setting different file for each lang.

Unfortunately, the image remains identical(from base lang) on all pages, no matter what lang am viewing.

But each lang should have different file/filename.

Our developers are aware of this issue and it seems the permanent fix will be released with WPML 4.4 so in the meantime please try this:

1- Go to the media library in the other language.
2- Get the URL of the translated image.
3- Go to wp-content\uploads\elementor\css and open the CSS file for the translated post.
4- Change the URL of the background-image

That's the only workaround we have so far.

I'll change the status of this ticket so i can let you know once the change has been published
