Hello there,

Could you please create a new page and use the same title and let me know if this helps.

Further, if the problem helps, Can you confirm that you are still experiencing issues with minimal set up (all plugins except WPML disabled and the theme on a WordPress default such as Twenty Nineteen)

Regarding the mo files, please click on "Generate .mo files" to generate the .mo files, from 4.3.3 we are changing the way string translation works to improve the site performance, more details: https://wpml.org/2019/10/wpml-4-3-with-revamped-string-translation/

Look forward to your reply.

Thanks

When changing the title to e.g. "#6131", it works, but when changing back to "#613" it is not working anymore. It seems there is a bug.

Hello there,

Our 2nd tier tested the issue and they mentioned that it's intentional as numbers doesn't require translations.

When you add the title #613 it's interpreted as Color CSS and it's not being copied as the CSS doesn't needs translations

The same way when you add the title #6143 it's neither a Color CSS no a number so this is shown in the editor.

Being so, you can just translate the other items and leave it accordingly or you can use manual WordPress editor to change the title.

Let me know if this helps.

Thanks
