Trying to translate the publish date and custom fields made with Toolset and ACF. Where do we translate those items for showing up translated on the front end?

Hi.

Thank you for contacting the WPML support forum.

I have little information to help you.
Could you elaborate, please on how hare you adding this field?
Sometimes screen-shots illustrating what you mean may go a long way to clarify what words fail to transmit, so if you like, make use of “upload an image” below the comment area.
Are you using ACF's 'Date Pocker' field?

How is it being integrated with Toolset?
In general, you can get the information about how to translate ACF's fields in our documentation here.

To ensure the quickest and most accurate support, please provide your debug information so that I can get a look at some of your configurations.
We have an excellent article on how to located here: https://wpml.org/faq/provide-debug-information-faster-support/.

The custom fields are created with toolset. How would we translate a custom field name?

Hi.

Translating custom fields with WPML is done in the same method whether it is created with Toolset or any other way. You can find our documentation about it here.
https://wpml.org/documentation/beginners-guide-to-site-translation/translating-custom-fields/

At the bottom of the page scroll down to the Multilingual Content Setup section and set the field to 'Translate' and press the 'Apply' button. Then the field will be available for translation when you translate the page. Please see attached screenshot.

Please let me know if this information is helpful to you.

Thanks,
Itamar.
