I there!

My site is
I'm using Enfold theme

I’ve assigned “english portfolios” to its corresponding and already translated “Portfolio category” (from german to english).

When I call portfolios elments invoking a determind category, from a “Portfolio Raster”, I can see the english “Portolio Category” in the combox but if I select it then no items are displayed in the frontend.

If I go to Portfolio > Portfolio Categories, i can see that all portfolio elements (both in german and in english) are assigned to the german category but none is assigned to the english one.

Furthermore, when an english portfolio element is open, I try to assign it categories from the right side bar but when I do that it is assigned to the german category.

It seems as if the "english categories were disabled. Only one of them is working properly

I tried to work it around but nothing happens

I hope i have been clear enough for you to understend this problem :-).

Thanks for your help
