i am using visual composer and on the landing page one element is not showing up in the translated version. This element is a post-grid that shows the latest 3 blogposts. The shortcode looks like this:

[vc_basic_grid post_type="post" max_items="3" item="9932" initial_loading_animation="none" grid_id="vc_gid:1538484656100-5ee785e3-4af6-0" exclude="1976"]

Blog posts are only available in german but should appear on the english page as well.
On the blog page they show up in both german and english, but the grid element is not showing on the landing page.

other shortcodes show up in the translation editor. for example:

[show_referenzen count="4"]

Any tips are highly appreciated!
Thanks, Stefan

I'm stupid!
Since I don't translate the blogposts they need to be set to "don't translate" in the settings tab. Otherwise wpml is only looking for translated posts …

My issue is resolved now. Thank you!
