Problem:
You are working with Transperfect to integrate translations into your site, but you are encountering issues with Tablepress tables not translating.
Solution:
Currently, it is not possible to translate Tablepress tables directly with WPML. However, we recommend using separate tables for each language as a workaround. You can find more details on this workaround at https://wpml.org/errata/tablepress-tables-cant-be-translated/.
If you are considering alternative plugins that are compatible with WPML, here are some options:

Background of the issue:
I am working with Transperfect, a translation service, to implement connections into our site which is currently under development. We are in the process of integrating translations for various components of the site.

Symptoms:
We are receiving the initial Pseudo translations for all components except the Tablepress tables, which are not translating.

Questions:
Why are the Tablepress tables not translating?
What steps can be taken to resolve the issue with Tablepress tables not translating?

Hello,

It is currently sadly not possible to translate Tablepress with WPML.

We do have the following errata which provide a workaround:

That's disappointing. Is this in the roadmap or will this continue to be a problem for the foreseeable future?

Hi there,

The last communication we had with the developers they mentioned it is not possible to do so and that is something which is outside of our control.

Please consider that the workaround my colleague mentioned works if you use separate tables for each language:

Thanks.

Can you recommend any similar plugins that do function with WPML?
