I have created ACF fields that are used in a Divi theme builder project template.
One of these fields was a simple text field that I have transformed into a WYSIWYG field. This new field works well in the source language (french) but I can't apply this change to english and spanish projects. I have tried to update translations of :
- the project template
- the ACF fields
- the project itself
But I keep on seeing code (/br, or

    ...) in translated pages on frontend instead of line breaks or bullets.
    You have to now that I have also modified one of Divi module options in the French project template ("display raw html", see screenshot) that is important and should be also applied to other languages for them to display properly. Maybe it's this setting that I cannot translate.

    Project with "Mission" text ok : hidden link

    Project translation with problem on "mission" text : hidden link

I have duplicated the project template and assigned it to the last project only (the one I sent you the link).

I have translated it again using your last recommendations and I got the same results.

Then I opened the theme builder interface after switching the backoffice language and I realized that, indeed, the "display raw html" was not checked in Spanish and English (the layout translation dit not copy this setting).

I changed it manually and now this template is well translated in all languages.

I know modifying theme builder content after switching the backoffice langage can be risky.
Until a few weeks ago, I did all the translations in this website via the DIVI Builder or the theme builder.

I have recently changed all my translation methods. I'm now using your most recent protocols involving the advanced translation editor and the translation management menu.

I would like to be able to continue in this direction and no longer "tinker" as I did before. So can you advise me on how to solve this problem without "cheating"? I could thus apply it to the first template which affect the entire site projects.
