Thank you for the hint heliA-2!
You can also put this in your functions.php to avoid installing another plugin:

$role_object = get_role( 'editor' );
$role_object->add_cap( 'wpml_manage_languages' );

I just wanted to let you know that the problem (editor can't duplicate or create translations) is fixed in our newest release (version 4.2.7 of WPML), you can update our plugins and the problem will be solved!


P.S: Thanks for the workaround, i'm sure it helped a lot of people!
