Hi,

I am trying to translate a contact from 7 shortcode with the advanced translation editor, but it doesn't work correctly.

I followed this instruction
https://wpml.org/faq/how-to-translate-urls-shortcodes-and-html-attributes-using-the-advanced-translation-editor/

Source shortcode
[contact-form-7 id="13" title="Contactformulier"]

Target shortcode
[contact-form-7 id="1873" title="Contactformulier_engels"]

With this, it shows parts of the shortcode on the translated page, see

Hi,

Thank you for contacting the support.

Since you are using Contact Form 7, I'll advise to use Contact Form 7 Multilingual plugin by WPML. Please see https://wpml.org/documentation/related-projects/using-contact-form-7-with-wpml/ for details. You can download the plugin from your WPML account's https://wpml.org/account/downloads/ page.

Regards.
