Hi,

Thank you for contacting WPML support.

The duplicate will copy the content from the original language to the translated language, but the Translate option will not copy any content from the default language to the translated one and you will have a blank page then you will need to insert all the translated content.

The duplicate will be useful if you have a page without content to translate, and it will keep the two pages Synchronized to each other, so when you change anything on the original page, it will be copied to the duplicated one but you can go to the duplicated page and then click on "Translate Independently" to set the translated page free of synchronization.
