We are finishing building a new website.
The workflow we had so far is building a website in English.
When the website is ready we use WPML to duplicate the website for each language.
After duplicating we localize content by adding or removing some content slightly.

The important question.
We need a new workflow or a tool to be able to edit pages globally not individually.
Because of WPML versions, we need to amend same page but in different language individually. I believe there is a tool or a workflow where you can make global changes.
Can you advise on this one?

For example.
Can we replace the same image across the page duplicates in all languages?

Kind regards,

Hello there,

Welcome to WPML support. I'd be assisting you further on this issue.

It's not possible to change some specific sections on all of the language at once, you will have to make changes in each languages.

If the pages are set as duplicate, the content of the page will be synchronized to all it's duplicate without any issues but as soon as you will mark the translation as independent translation, the synchronization will not work.

Let me know if this helps.
