We have created a CPT with Toolset and one of the custom fields is an URL field which was set to copy once. We were hoping that that url (link to other WP pages) would be translated automatically like other WP links in a post (non custom fields).

Hello,

Welcome to the WPML support forum. I will do my best to help you to resolve the issue.

The inner links of Pages will be automatically converted after the translation. But it will not be applicable for the custom fields values normally. So I have the following doubt to track the issue.

How you are entering values to the URL custom field? It will be great if you can share a couple of screenshots for a better understanding of the issue.

Please refer to this documentation for more details - https://wpml.org/documentation/getting-started-guide/translating-custom-fields/#indicating-which-custom-fields-to-translate

Thanks!

Default language is English and we were hoping that the URL could be translated automagically 🙂
Instead, even though it is marked as Translate, it is not visible in the Translation Editor. We can only translate it if we switch language in the top admin bar.

Will have another look, but either way, we will have to translate the urls manually?

Do you have any idea why the url is not visible in the Dutch translation editor, but it is visible for other languages.
