Hi, I've a problem, get_term_by(name) don't work properly in translation if term name is the same of original language. I can fix it with a WPML function for return correct id?

$location = esc_attr($params['location']);
$term = get_term_by('name', $location, 'listing-location');
$location = $term->term_id; -> (this work only in italian)

But you are welcomed to check the function below which is the recommended way to get the term instead of the funciton that you use:
