We have a staging environment and a production environment. We had received translations of China pages through WPML on the production environment.

We recently fully synced staging and production, and in doing so we lost the China pages in WPML on the live site (the staging site overwrote the production site).

Is there a way to recover the China pages we lost in the WPML production site?

Thank you!

Additionally - we did a backup of the production site before the sync, so we do have those pages in WPML on that environment. Is it possible to carry them over from that environment to production easily?

I tried to add the debug info and got this error (attached).

Can you just tell me if there's a way for our translation vendor to resend the pages they already sent? Or are they lost forever?

Thank you for the updates and sorry for the bit of waiting here. Regarding your question:

"Can you just tell me if there's a way for our translation vendor to resend the pages they already sent? Or are they lost forever?"

No, your already made translations won't be lost as it is kept in memory either in the WPML Advanced Translation Editor and the Translations Services (translation vendor) itself. In this case you could try the following:

1 - Check with your translation vendor if the already made translations are kept in memory so you won't be charged again for these already made translations.

2 - Resend your pages/posts as translations jobs for your translation service (vendor)

You should receive the translations back in your desired environment. Please, let me know if it makes sense of if you need any additional details and clarifications, have a nice day.
