Thank you for contacting WPML Support. Could you please follow the below steps and let me know how it goes?

1. Could you please make sure you have translated your site home page completely as it is necessary, the contents you are viewing on the front-end must be translated.

2. I have noticed that your website’s WP Memory Limit is 40MB. The WP memory limit needs to be increased, it's different than php memory. PHP memory is fine but WordPress uses 40Mb as default in your site. Minimum requirements for WPML are 128Mb:

Please add this to the top of wp-config.php to increase WP memory:

/* WP Memory Limit */
define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '256M');
define( 'WP_MAX_MEMORY_LIMIT', '256M' );

3. Please delete all sort of caches on your site / server cache / plugin cache (LiteSpeed Cache) / CDN cache (if any), clear browser cache and then check the page. I would suggest to disable LiteSpeed Cache plugin temporarily.

4. If still issue persists, please check for a possible theme and plugin conflict. To do that you can switch back to any default theme (e.g. Twenty Seventeen theme), Disable all plugins except WPML and see if this issue goes away with default theme and only WPML activated?

Thank you

Hi, thank you for reply. I increased WP memory and checked if everything is translated in Hjem page. Unfortunately not every content of this page is translated. I see it, if I go straight to translated page "Home", but when I check WPML - Translations - page "Hjem" is marked as completed. Is is also shows the same thing when I check all the sections in the "Hjem" page in WPML. All fields are translated and it is written that translation is 100 per cent complete. I started to check every field and and noticed that some fields with Norwegian texts are missing. That is why, it is not translated. I simply can not find fields with information, which have to be translated. What are you suggest to do now?

Thanks for doing above steps, To take a closer look on this issue, please provide temporary access (WP-Admin and FTP Login info) to your site, so that I can look into your setup and debug the issue.

Your next answer will be private which means only you and I have access to it.

=== Please backup your database and website ===

✙ I would additionally need your permission to de-activate and re-activate Plugins and the Theme, and to change configurations on the site. This is also a reason the backup is really important.

Thank you
