Hello There,

I am using Advanced Custom Fields PRO Version 5.8.3 with WPML Version and I have all the associated plugins and add-ons with the WordPress installation. Also, I have an updated version of all the plugins, theme and WPML add-ons.

I am facing 3 issues right now, that's is related to ACF and WPML.
#1 The repeater fields are not showing in front-end.
#2 The slug's of custom fields are coming in WPML editor instead of labels.
#3 All the fields are showing twice in the WPML editor.

# 1: I have repeater fields on the Home page and Training Videos page. In the WPML editor repeater fields are showing and I can edit them, but it's not showing on the front side of the website.

I have followed the below article and its steps but it's not working for me.
