Hi guys,

I have a problem that bothers me for a long time.

Why is media translation WPML plugin not deleting images in gallery from other languages when I delete them from the default language?

Same question here:

I there a way to resolve that issue?

I've tried with the button "Scan and duplicate attachments" but it didn't worked.

Thanks in advance for the help!

The media translation plugin will allow to use the same uploaded media (images, audio, movies, etc.) in different translations, without having to re-upload duplicate content.

When you insert media to posts and pages, Media Translation will offer to auto-duplicate it to translations. Then, when you use the WordPress gallery shorttag, the same images will appear in all translations.

It does not delete the translations. you will have to delete it from media -> library.

It's a bit inconvenient for my clients to manually delete images from other languages (in media -> library) :-/

Do you guys plan to add such a feature in a newer version of media translation or is there any available plugin who can do this job automatically?

Okay, I will add this as a feature request, our development team should work on it.

I am not sure if there's any other plugin available, may be you can give a try to search on
