I configured Publicize with my social networks. It works very well. However, my website is in French and English, and this is a problem with Publicize. Here is what happens:
- I write my post in French
- I publish it and it automatically goes on my social networks
- I translate the post into English
- It is published and it is automatically put on my social networks in French too. So, my posts are published twice in French on social networks.

Can we make a configuration where English posts are published in English on social networks ?

Thanks a lot,

1. Technical Information on you environment
Could you please provide information about your environment by following thsese steps:

2. Plugin Compatibility
Unfortunately, I cannot find this plugin included in the list of tested/certified compatible solutions with WPML:

This does not mean that the two plugins will not work well together but it could imply some compatibility issues that we might need the author´s collaboration to solve.

3. Clarification
3.1 Are you able to active/deactivate/configure the automatic transfer of the post to social networks when you publish a post? or is the action of pushing the post to social networks automatically done no matter what?

3.2 Are the social networks to post to configurable? it may be that you need to translate the correct configuration settings for the EN language.

3.2 If you use either of the following workflows, does the double posting in FR networks still happen?
- Create FR post - save in "Draft" mode
- Translate to EN - save in "Draft" mode
- Publish EN post
- Publish FR post (if it is not automatically published already)

-- OR--
- Create FR post - save in "Draft" mode
- Translate to EN - save in "Draft" mode
- Publish FR post

I wait for your answers.

Regarding the issue with JetPack, I'm afraid this problem is a known compatibility issue between WPML and Jetpack. Our compatibility team is already in contact with the author of the plugin to establish a solution or workaround:
