Thank you for contacting WPML support. I'll be happy to help you with this.

It could be that this field value needs to be copied to the secondary language. I assume you set some sort of hours to indicate when the restaurant is open? Please go to WPML -> Translation Management -> Multilingual Content Setup. Scroll down to the custom fields section and click Show System Fields. Now search for a field where you would enter those values and if you find it, set it to copy.

If you don't find the field or that doesn't work, please go to WPML > String Translation and scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on the link "Translate texts in admin screens »". Then, scroll through that page and see if you find the the string. If so, tick the checkbox and click Apply to add it to the String Translation table. Now you can go back to WPML > String Translation and you should see the string added there.

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

Hi Lauren
thanks for your help but it was not successful more and more I believe it will be the best if a WPML contractor sort all open things like menu categories etc. I have reached my limit may it it also the Theme they prefer a other free translation tool but I prefer WPML so it will be more work but with a better knowledge in how you translate a website with your tool it will be ok.

Best regards

I would like to request temporary access (wp-admin and FTP) to your site to take better look at the issue. You will find the needed fields for this below the comment area when you log in to leave your next reply. The information you will enter is private which means only you and I can see and have access to it.

Our Debugging Procedures

I will be checking various settings in the backend to see if the issue can be resolved. Although I won't be making changes that affect the live site, it is still good practice to backup the site before providing us access. In the event that we do need to debug the site further, I will duplicate the site and work in a separate, local development environment to avoid affecting the live site.

Privacy and Security Policy

We have strict policies regarding privacy and access to your information. Please see:


- Please make a backup of site files and database before providing us access.

- If you do not see the wp-admin/FTP fields this means your post & website login details will be made PUBLIC. DO NOT post your website details unless you see the required wp-admin/FTP fields. If you do not, please ask me to enable the private box. The private box looks like this: hidden link
