Hello,

Thank you for contacting WPML Support. I Would need some more details here before giving you a detailed and accurate answer. For example: Are those users assigned as local translators in your WPML Translation Management? If so, they are only able to translate content sent via WPML Translation Management itself which doesn't include menus.

In those cases, you would need to assign a native WordPress capability to allow those users to edit menu as well using any third party user role editor such as: https://wordpress.org/plugins/user-role-editor/.

See:
https://wpml.org/documentation/support/wpml-admin-capabilities/
https://wordpress.stackexchange.com/questions/4191/allow-editors-to-edit-menus

In any case, if it doesn't make sense, please, let me know the details and we'll proceed with a more detailed answer, have a nice day.

Thanks alot

Now they can edit the menu.

Is it possible to make them able to only edit their own language menu like with pages?

For our German translator:
pages: hidden link
menu: hidden link

so they rest are grey like with pages?

Hope you can help me once again

Hello,

Thank you for the updates. It is not possible as menus are not sent for translation using the WPML Translation Management tool, this way the menus are not sent separeted by the languages assigned to a translator.

Achieving something like that would involve a very complex solution by custom code, something out the scope our support (see https://wpml.org/purchase/support-policy/). Thank you for your understanding, have a nice day.
