Hello Team,

Whenever a user with Admin privileges finishes/translates a page, normal translators(editor users) can't edit these pages.

Can you tell us how this can be done ?

Thanks in advance,

Thank you for contacting WPML support.

Editors can add, edit, publish, and delete any posts on a WordPress site including the ones written by others.
So this is a WordPress feature. Not controlled by the WPML.

And, if you make the editors as translators then they will be able to translate as well.
That is something added by WPML.

If you disable the WPML temporarily the editors can edit the pages created by the admins?
Editors should be able to edit them in this case as this is allowed by WordPress.

Please check and let me know.

Sorry, I do not work on Fridays and Saturdays.

They aren't able to edit pages that have been translated and finished by Admin
- so this is a translation
- translations can be edited by whom got assigned
- how did admin translated it?
- was he using translation management?
- if yes, he should resign the job and then reassign it to the editor who wants to translate it.
- did admin translate it manually?

Let me know after checking these.
