I am trying to: display every picture on my site after translation

I visited this URL:
hidden link

I expected to see: every picture

Instead, I got: not every picture is showing up

I did
Translate existing media in all languages
Duplicate existing media for translated content
Duplicate the featured images for translated content
for every media file on my site, it didn't work

Languages: English (English ) Portuguese (Brazil) (Português )

Timezone: America/Sao_Paulo (GMT-03:00)

How these images are added? For example, you add it to a page or a custom post type and displays it on the About page?

Thank you.

For example 'Our Team' is a Post Format, names of the crew are displaying on the 'About Us' page, but without photos. It were dispaled even before I added a translation, and now when I try to add a crew member in english translation it is doubled in native and english translation (2 same crew members are displaying). So I think it displayes native version even in english site. How can I configurate/translate this kind of Post Format in WPML?

Did you set your custom post type as "Translate" from:
=> WPML => Translation Management
=> click on tab "Multilingual Content Setup"
=> go to section "Custom Post"

Yes, I've already done it before, didn't work either

Yes, you should also upgrade WPML add-on plugins as well by following same steps. It will not delete your translations but to be remain at safer side I would like to suggest that you should take full backup of your database and website first before taking any action.

There's still this problem: when I try to translate some post from 'About Us' form it is doubling it in polish, also in english, but english version is showing non-translate content too, but without images.
