I use 2 languages.English is the primary.
I manually translate each.
I take the images from english, as they are .... (like <img src=...etc) and paste them in the other language. No need for other translation.
I assign manually a feature image in each.

MY QUESTIONS:
1.How can the notes under "Media Attachments" ( Duplicate uploaded media from original
- Duplicate featured image from original) help me.

2. I organize all photos and delete some of them in the Media Library (in English).
When i click the 2nd language in Media Library, I see no changes and I imagine that they are totally different order. Is it possible to use the same default media library for the 2nd language as well?

3. I see a warning....
WPML needs to upgrade the post's media information.
In a few words how can it help me?

Hi,

Thank you for contacting WPML support!

Let me try to answer the best I can:

1) These options mean that these images would be available in translations as well and that you can change this settings per-page. These would not be duplicated physically on disk, but only as a reference.

2) If you upload an image into English library, it will be visible if you switch library language as well. However, if you use Media Translation to translate this image, a different image (translated) will now be visible in other language in its place.

3) When you click "Upgrade", does it complete the process? This may be caused by a high number of media files or by some hidden error.
