How do I set WPML to automatically set a post that I've duplicated to be translated independently? We have 100s of post types to duplicate and most of them aren't duplicating the media files unless I go to each post type, click update and this window pops up and I click "OK". I'd like to eliminate this step of clicking "OK" so we don't have to do this with 100s of post types.

Hello again,

Could you please point us to some examples of posts containing this issue? Also, I would like to request temporary access (wp-admin and FTP) to your site to take a better look at the issue. You will find the needed fields for this below the comment area when you log in to leave your next reply. The information you will enter is private which means only you and I can see and have access to it.

Our Debugging Procedures

I will be checking various settings in the backend to see if the issue can be resolved. Although I won't be making changes that affect the live site, it is still good practice to backup the site before providing us access. In the event that we do need to debug the site further, I will duplicate the site and work in a separate, local development environment to avoid affecting the live site.

Privacy and Security Policy

We have strict policies regarding privacy and access to your information. Please see:


- Please make a backup of site files and database before providing us access.
- If you do not see the wp-admin/FTP fields this means your post & website login details will be made PUBLIC. DO NOT post your website details unless you see the required wp-admin/FTP fields. If you do not, please ask me to enable the private box. The private box looks like this: hidden link

Please, let me know if you need any additional details. Have a nice day.

I think I've found the problem but don't know the solution. Custom Fields Translation is not showing the fields' translation preferences correctly. Maybe this is why the fields aren't transferring correctly when I duplicate post types with ACFs in them.
