I've added the following code to WPML > Settings > Custom XML Config as instructed by WPML support:




<attribute >title</attribute>

<attribute >text_content</attribute>



It does not work, and I still cannot translate any text boxes. I get a message saying "The XML is not valid:
Element 'shortcode': This element is not expected."

I am using the Vitrine theme with WP Bakery Page Builder.

Thank you for contacting WPML support. This code needs to be put inside <shortcodes> tag that’s why error was arising. I have added code in the correct location and now XML saved successfully.

- Now, you need to make a small change in the original page, for example, a space in your title.
- Edit the translation again

- Please delete all sort of caches on your site / server cache / plugin cache / CDN cache (if any), clear browser cache and then check the page.

Here is the doc for more details:

Please let me know if this resolves your issue or you need further assistance with this issue.

Thank you
