I am trying to:
Create different pages in different languages

Link to a page where the issue can be seen:
hidden link
<a href="hidden link">My page with issue</a>

I expected to see:
Visual Composer

Instead, I got:
WPML TRanslation Editor

Basically I would like to not use the translation editor. I want to build out my japanese pages seperately with totally different content then my english content. So I don't need to translate the same content, I want access to visual composer to just build those pages from scratch.

I'm trying to paste the link but maybe because its in japanese its coming out all weird hidden link

Is that normal if my URL's are in japanese?

To turn off translation editor just go to WPML > Translation Management > How to translate posts and pages.

Please take a look at the screenshot provided.

Hi, Im having the same issue. But in the newer version of wpml there is no option called for "Create translation Manually".

Where do I find that setting?

You have that option when you go to your page/post edit screen on the right where are the meta boxes. I've attached screenshot.

Best regards

Sorry but I really don't get this now.
I understand you say the global setting is now not available so I can NOT disable globally the advance editor, but when I do on a post or page I still don't get the "associate with".
This is... I am looking for the previous feature where I could link a post in a language with another post (already existing) in another. How do I do that now?????
