OK I understand all that. The reason I brought it up was the earlier I thought I was seeing behavior that was not consistent with that. But I just checked again, and it seems as if I can duplicate without issue now. Thanks for your patience on that.

At this point, my page is duplicate as desired, and I require no more duplication of Elementor pages. But when I open this page and try to make some edits, WPML displays a message:

>> Warning: You are trying to edit a translation using the standard WordPress editor but your site is configured to use the WPML Translation Editor.

(see attached screenshot) I realize as part of this exercise I configured this particular page to use the "WPML Translation Editor." But I have no clue what that means, how it will affect things, whether I can disable that, etc. I enabled it only because I was told to do so by support, in order to resolve this particular issue. After I duplicate my Elementor page into my desired languages, can I disable the "WPML Translation Editor?" If so, how exactly? Do I disable it on the same page on which I enabled it?

Thanks.

Hello, feedback below:

After I duplicate my Elementor page into my desired languages, can I disable the "WPML Translation Editor?" If so, how exactly? Do I disable it on the same page on which I enabled it?

Yes. If you want, you can disable the translation editor using the steps below:
- Go to the edit screen of the page (original language).
- Turn off the "Use WPML's Translation Editor" on the right sidebar (see screenshot)
- Select your editor preferences and save (for all posts or only this post - it's up to you)
- Edit the translation

After that, it will open the manual editor automatically.

Kind regards,
Diego

OK thanks, that worked. But on a related note, after our duplication work, when I open this page for editing, I encounter another WPML warning (see attached screenshot). Why is that occurring, and how can I resolve it?

Thanks.

Hi there,

It's because there is a translation of the page that was started (but not completed with 100% status).

You can click finish the translation if you want, or just click on the "I understand button".

If you need more help just let me know.

Kind regards,
Diego

>> or just click on the "I understand button".

I realize I can click "I understand" every time this occurs. But this is an annoying popup, that I've never encountered until beginning this duplication task with you. So I would like to learn to how ensure it no longer displays.

>> You can click finish the translation if you want

How exactly do I do that? Screenshots would be great.

Hi there,

To complete a translation, you just need to check all "Translation is complete" fields, so it will reach the "100% translated" status. You can see the process at the video of this previous reply: https://wpml.org/forums/topic/wpml-cannot-duplicate-page-created-with-elementor-page-builder/page/2/#post-4690487 (starts at 1:00)

If the translation have the "100% translated" status, this warning will not be displayed anymore.

Kind regards,
Diego

OK. But to do that for this particular page, I need to have WPML's Translation Editor turned on. Is that correct?

Hi there,

Yes. Please complete the translations then switch back to the manual editor after that if you want to.

Kind regards,
Diego

OK I understand. But my issue is that I have already switched back to the manual editor. So why is the WPML Translation Editor still displaying errors/notifications?

Please check if the other language versions are already published (and not with the "draft" status).

If so, and the issue persist, please send us the credentials again and I will take a look (please use the private field).

Well at this point, I've clicked the 'do not show this again,' so it may be difficult for you to troubleshoot. Let's call this resolved. If the issue resumes, i'll open a new ticket.
