Thank you for contacting WPML support.

So the issue is coming clearly from GravityForm

Anyhow, you are not using the latest WPML and it's plugins.
Please update all WPML plugins and check.
You can check the latest versions here :

If that does not help we have to check this in a fresh installation.

Let me know.

I have the same issue I open a ticket on Gravity Forms support.
They reply to me this:

"Hi Steven,
I'm afraid this is an issue WPML would need to fix, they will need to update their add-on to support or skip translating strings used by the new WordPress block editor.

Please I need to fix urgently this issue I can't work with my website !!!

Riffaz - How can you be so sure the error is caused by Gravityforms ? You are running a bleme game here and your answer is quite arrogant. For your information the error is fixed due to the update to the latest version of WPML hence the error was in your software.

@renes-10 sorry if I did not explain clearly.
Gravity Form updated there code.
so this error happened with WPML.
so we updated our plugin.
And it was fixed.
As I mentioned already you were using old versions of WPML.
And, you confirmed that the issue has been fixed by updating the WPML. 🙂
So everything is fine now I hope.

please check how renes fixed it:
If that does not help please open a new ticket.
