The site header is getting expanded downward on my translated pages. In English, everything is acting normally. It seems as if its the page title showing up for some reason. I have my page titles disabled in Elementor and through another plugin.

I attached an image of the expanded header and also of the inspected element causing the problem.

If I delete that element in the Google Inspection tool, the issue disappears.

HI There,

please go to Pages->Edit page->Click on the top bar language switcher and switch to the secondary language(Right click and open in a new tab)

this will keep you within the Page builder view of WordPress. Now examine your settings for the translation as there might be some settings enabling the header within the translation

let me know your results please

That worked! Do you know why my settings were not transferred over to the translated page, and how I can avoid that in the future?

Thanks for your help.

Im glad to hear this worked !

If you access your default language page and scroll down to the bottom at there might be an option to set specific taxonomies and settings to copy over when creating translations.

If it is not listed there then it depends which settings controls this , sometimes certain settings just dont copy over and this is mainly depended on the theme or plugin authors.

A way this can be avoided is by instead of clicking on "+" to add a translation you can "duplicate" the page and then this would carry over all your settings then just add the translation
