@columnD using the same image from the original post as you did in 4.0.3 will no longer work. You should be able to duplicate the image, and in the translated page, there is a check box to duplicate the image from the original page. This does not make another copy of the image, just another entry in the database for the translated version. That entry will hold the translated meta info. If it is not working, please try the workaround mentioned here:

I think this bring more issues? Shouldn't there be options for us if we choose not to duplicate medias? I am having a lot of issues with the latest version of WPML. We are using S3 offload too which seems to break as those images are not on local.

Hi, Lauren, I'm sorry but it's not resolved. Our Thumbnail size is 150 px yet. Do you have an other idea ? WPML says "Le chargement de l'éditeur d'image a échoué" and I can't access to the fields behind the image...

I agree with @shun-chengf. I have thousands of images and maybe only 50 images need to be duplicated. Are the changes finalized and this is what it is going forward? I don't want it to happen again where you have added a working feature then take it away.

This update still does solve media issues. We have an image gallery that we copy from one page to the translated page and it shows "no items found" in most gallery images. Tried all the settings (translate/don't translate/fall back) as well as erasing wpml cache and still not working. It used to work before the 4 update.
