I am trying to:
Translate a page

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

I expected to see:
A video about half the page on the right side

Instead, I got:
The video is only in the main language available. In the translated pages (FR and ENG) I get nothing (ENG) and some code (FR).

Thank you for contacting WPML Support. I tried to access your website WordPress Dashboard to give it a further look, unfortunately the provided credentials don't seem to be correct. In any case, I recommend you to try the following:

1 - Click to edit your homepage in the default language, then choose to edit your homepage translations using the default WordPress page/post editor.

2 - Now, manually adjust the video shortcode/embed code and save your changes.


Please, let me know if this approach works for you or if you need any additional assistance and clarifications, have a nice day.

Hello Marcos, thanks.

On my page there is no such a 'duplicate' button as you can see in the attached image. I work with the fields that are used in Cornerstone (left original language, right the translation) and everything is already translated that way..

You can login now. I have updated your role to admin so now you can take a look for yourself.

Important: because WPML/CORNERSTONE are not compatible in the new versions of WPML I had to use the February 2019-versions of all the WPML plugins. So please do not update to the net WPML plugin versions.

Thank you for the updates. Even with existing translations made using the WPML Translation Editor, you can still change to the default WordPress page/post editor and use the Cornestone builder to manually adjust the video block for your translated pages, here is how:

1 - In your WordPress Dashboard > Pages click to edit your homepage in your default language.

2 - Click to turn off the WPML Translation Editor and use the default WordPress page/post editor, then click the pencil icon. See attached screenshot.

3 - Now click to edit your translated page using the Cornestone builder and manually adjust the video shortcode.

Please, let me know if it works for you. Have a nice day.
