I expected to see:
The English translated text, but I cannot find it in the WPML plugin. It should be somewhere in the backend but after searching for a long time I decided to contact you.

Can you please help me with this issue to find this text in wpml so I can translate it? Thank you very much in advance.

Best regards,

Antwin Grevengoed

Hi and thank you for contacting WPML Support!

I will be happy to help you with this.

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 the 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

I will be waiting for your response.

Kind regards,
Mihai Apetrei

No worries on the delay.

I was able to login successfully using the credentials that you shared.

I went here (hidden link) and I was able to translate the content.

You can see the "EN" strings that I added in front of the headlines:

To translate the content, I went to this link (hidden link) and then I clicked "Edit with WPBakery Page Builder" in the top-right section of the page.

Can you please let me know if that works on your side, too?

I will also attach a screenshot.

Please let me know.

I will be waiting for your response.

Kind regards,
