Thank you for contacting WPML support.

1.- I would like to ask you to visit this link where you will find the steps to follow in order to translate the media elements:

2.- Please increase the PHP Memory Limit. Minimum requirements are 128Mb:
You can add this to wp-config.php to increase WP memory:

/** Memory Limit */
define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '128M');
define( 'WP_MAX_MEMORY_LIMIT', '128M' );

- Add it above the line /* That's all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */

Kind regards,

Hi Carlos,

Thanks for your reply but we still can’t translate our gallerypages. The first bullet can’t be activated..

< Check image 001 >

Everything else is put into place as you suggested. Please visit the next page to see what needs to be translated: hidden link
Then click on first category and then on the first image ( is a lightbox-function) and check the text down (this is CAPTION text).

English version:

Dutch version (no translation)

Thanks for your help…
