Hello,

I was able to translate most of the content by applying a custom XML config at WPML -> Settings -> Custom XML Config.

This config forces strings from WPML -> String Translation -> Translate strings in admin texts to appear on String Translation.

Take a look here:

Let me know if you have further questions.

Kind regards

Hi Andreas. Thank you, but I lost a lot of the pages I had translated.
ie: this is now back in english as one example:
hidden link

Do I need to re-translate these ones?
If not caused by you then is there an error with the plugin?

And some of the headlines on the home page changed back to English that I've now re-edited.

Need 'ASX CODE' changed to 编码 in the Chinese version of the site.

And the 'search' button in the menu changed to: 搜索

Can see ASX CODE and SEARCH here:

Also some of the urls of the pages lost their english slug and were replaced with some long url code instead. Fixed now.

I'm ok with having to translate what was lost but just want to make sure there isn't a bug or that I'll lose the translations again?

Also that widget thing you placed for just chinese is perfect, as there will be code specific for the chinese site entered in there.

Sorry, 'ASX Code' is actually: 澳交所代码

I can't find the author strings either. Let me know how you go with the theme or xml or whatever else is working.

These are the translations needed for the authors/users.
I can do them if you can tell me how...but I can't find anywhere to do it.

Hello,

It seems as the string "ASX Code" was not integrated with a Widget.

Now, I was not able until now to locate this string. How was it integrated into the site?

For the Page "Upcoming IPOs" I do see that it was not translated with the WPML Translation Editor, as the Editor is disabled (See screenshot).

When opening the Chinese page I see English content. Could it be that this page was created as a duplicate of English and then set to "translate independently" afterwards?

More about how to use this translation method can be found here:
https://wpml.org/documentation/translating-your-contents/displaying-untranslated-content-on-pages-in-secondary-languages/using-content-duplication/

I would suggest you enable the WPML Translation Editor and translate the page again.

This is the recommended way to translate when using page builders like Visual Composer (WP Bakery).
https://wpml.org/documentation/translating-your-contents/page-builders/

For the strings of the user biographical info, I have enabled the translation option at the bottom of the String Translation screen. You should be able to translate those strings now.

Kind regards
Andreas

I use the wordpress editor (not WPML) as the code that will go into the Chinese site is different. One of your supporters said that was the way to do it. And yes, to duplicate it then edit it later. I did edit them to Chinese but for some reason they all reverted back to English.

"ASX Code" is the equivalent of "TAGS"...I just renamed it.
It wasn't changing the usual way recently so it's part of the Child theme. Not sure if that helps?

Ok, I'll have a look at the bios.

I was able to find my author bio and edit it in strings but it didn't update the author bio page:

Also was unable to find the string for everyone else:

Hello,

Please install the currently used theme and the plugins needed in order to recreate the issue onto the following test-site for further investigation:

Ok, will get to this later today.

Did you by any chance start deactivating plugins this morning?
I had to delete your login and some others as its ruined the look of our site. We are getting record views at the moment so had to make sure site was functioning smoothly.

With regard to the author bios...is there a way I can do those? As mentioned above the method you showed didn't work.

The 'ASX Code' translation while important isn't holding back the launch, but the author bios will.

Hello,

Yes, in fact, I did a short test, as I wanted to make sure if it is a theme issue.

My apologies, I hope this did not cause any harm, but while deactivating a few plugins including the theme plugin for a minute I was able to identify that this is what was responsible for the page builder element that is not getting translated.

Please install the theme and its plugin on our test site and I will take further steps from there.

For the ASX string please read this documentation:

Kind regards

'TAGS' is the 'ASX CODE' equivalent on my site.
