Thank you for contacting us and sorry for the delay.

In these image fields, in the original language, are you entering more content? For example, in the first image, besides the title, did you add the fields alt, description, etc? You can verify that these images are tagged with alt in Media > Library.

If the images are not tagged with alt in the original language, please follow the steps below:

- Click on the Media > Library
- Select the desired image
- Fill the "alt" field
- Click to save the changes
- Open the page where the image is inserted
- Click to edit the translation
- Check if the "alt" field is now displayed

Note that you must populate the "alt" tag in the default language for the field to be displayed in the secondary language for translation.

If the alt tag is already populated in the default language then follow the steps below:

- Completely complete the page translation (select the "translation is complete" fields)
- Edit something inside the original content
- Click to update the default language content
- Click to edit the translation
- Check if the "alt" field is now displayed

Thank you.
