I am trying to:
Translate my site into English

Link to a page where the issue can be seen:
hidden link

I expected to see:
Layer Slider in the English version

Instead, I got:

I have a website buildt with X-Theme and Cornerstone and made an English version for it. Everything is ready but the big slider in the header is not displayed in the English version.

I already saw this topic in the support forum and tried to do the steps described there (Update images in Media translation), but it does not seem to work.

Hello there,

Thank you for contacting WPML support. I'd be happy to assist you further on this issue.

Please follow the below steps to fix the issue:
1) Go to Page where you have added the slider
2) Go to Multilingual content setup meta box at the bottom of the page
3) Click on "show system fields"
4) Search for _x_slider_above and mark it as a copy.
5) Now update both languages.

The _x_slider_above is a field where the slider selected information is stored and since it's not copied in the secondary language it wasn't showing.

Note: I have already performed the above-mentioned steps for the homepage so you can see it's working perfectly.

Let me know if this helps.

Kind Regards,
