Hi, we have some problems about integration beetween WPML plugin and ACF (Advanced Custom Fields) plugin.
Details below:

FIRST ATTEMPT
- we have as master language GB and we create a page. This page contains a lot of infos inside ACF
- we duplicate the page from master GB to another language (ES).
Duplicated page doesn't have custom field infos (all custom fields have the setting "Don't translate")

SECOND ATTEMPT
- we have as master language GB and we create a page. This page contains a lot of infos inside ACF
- we duplicate the page from master GB to another language (ES).
Duplicated page has custom field infos (all custom fields have the setting "Copy")
- we translate indipendently the page and we change infos inside a ACF -> we don't see the new infos.
The page continues to have same infos as master language (maybe because we have set ACF as "copy")

THIRD ATTEMPT
- we have as master language GB and we create a page. This page contains a lot of infos inside ACF
- we duplicate the page from master GB to another language (ES).
Duplicated page doesn't have custom field infos (all custom fields have the setting "Translate")

We need to have some languages as copy of master and some languages as translations.
How should we set "custom field" to have both options active?

Thank you

Hey,

Thank you for reaching out the WPML support!

As I understand from your message, you'd like to have the custom fields set to both translate and copy, based on the language. For now, the any custom field can be set to just one option so I'm afraid that you cannot do what you're looking for. If you want, you can set the field to translate and when you need the copy one, just manually copy all the content from the main language.

Also, can you make sure that you installed the Advanced Custom Fields Multilingual plugin? This is a tool made to connect WPML and ACF. I'm not saying that will let you do this change of having two options selected for the translation option but it's helpful on many other situations when you need to create custom fields and translate them.

Thanks,
Radu
