I’m using ACF date / time field and WPML on my WordPress site. This field return date in current choosen site language. For eg. if I choose english version I get date like “Jan 05” but when I choose polish it’s changed to “Sty 05”. I would like to prevent that and keep always english version, no matter what site vesrion is choosen. How can I do that?

Please go to Custom Fields - Field Groups - choose the date field and set it to Copy.

The instructions including screenshots for setting the field to copy can be found here:

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks for reply! Unfortunately I don't see those options in ACF field. Should I turn them on somewhere in WPML preferences?

Ok, now I see there is a plugin for that so now I see all those options. My based language is polish and second lang is english. When I set translation of this field to "copy" like you like you mentioned, data output format is still depended of site language. I want to keep this field in english, on polish and other languages translation too.
