Hi there,

The original English version layout changed after I duplicated a Chinese Version. The two pages are not synced, which is what we want. Is there an easy way for me to keep the layout the same without syncing the pages and losing the existing Chinese content? What is the best way to handle this situation?

English version - hidden link
Chinese version - hidden link

I am waiting online for your help, thanks!

Hello there,

Thank you for contacting us. When you duplicate a page, the content becomes synchronized whenever the default language changes.

When you make this content no longer synchronized, you would either need to use the Translation Editor or you will need to add the modules in the secondary language as well.

It looks like you're using a Page Builder. In this case, I believe the best option should be using the Translation Editor.

Also, it looks like you're using some very old WPML plugins. Please, could you update all your plugins and, using the Translation Editor, check if the translation works correctly? You can see in our documentation:

Following these steps, please let me know if the problem persists.

Thank you.
