I am trying to:
Translate attributes from english to german language

Link to a page where the issue can be seen:

I expected to see:
That the original language of the translated attribute is English.

Instead, I got:
The original language of the translated attribute is German.

I selected the english attribute "4 Subscriptions" and then selected "add" to add the German translation. (see image: Translate Number of subscriptions 1.png)

I add the translation in German and at the bottom is says: This is a translation of > 4 subscriptions (see image: Translate Number of subscriptions 2.png) So far so good.

Then when I look at Woocommerce >> Woocommerce Multilingual >> tab Attributes and select the Numbers of subscriptions translation it shows that the original language of the attribute "4 Abonnements" is German instead of English???

What am I doing wrong here? Or is this a bug in WPML??

Thank you for contacting WPML Support. I will be glad to help with this.

I think you have done all the process correctly, you may also translate the attribute directly from WooCommerce->WooCommerce Multilingual.

This may be a bug indeed, i created a new server, WooCommerce is activated, please configure WPML as close as possible to your server and try to reproduce this error. If reproduced in this clean install, we can assume it is a bug, and i will push it to our developers to fix.
Credentials are in the previous private message.

Hello Jamal,

I've tested the issue on your test site and I couldn't reproduce the error. So I think it isn't a bug.
I solved the issue on our website by deleting the English attributes and then add new ones and translate them into German. Now the original language is English.

Thanks for the support and have a nice weekend!

Best regards,
