I am trying to: Translate a table from English to Spanish

Link to a page where the issue can be seen: hidden link

I expected to see: The text in the table should be in Spanish

Instead, I got: Spanish at the beginning of the page, a table in English and then some things in English and some in Spanish.

Hi Michele, I believe we have this resolved now. You can see that the address, email, phone, quicklinks are now showing the translations. The reason they are showing twice is because you have set these sections as global elements, but instead of translating the global elements, you translated it via the page. The page translation will override the global translation.

The correct way to translate global elements is to go to Divi -> Library and translate the elements there. However, it is perfectly fine to leave it as is since it is now translated from within the page.

Please let me know if you need any further assistance and I will be happy to help.
