Hello, we are using BuddyPress with your plugin BuddyPress Multilingual plugin, having English as Primary language and Greek as Secondary.

We have 2 custom profile fields "Research" and "Publications" field labels, which were translated to Greek using your "String Translation" option. Unfortunately the field contents/values remain the same in both languages when updated, i.e. when updating the field value of Publications in Greek, the content remains the same in the English version.

How can the field content/values for each language be stored, viewed and edited accordingly?

Thank you!

I have created a test website with a clean WordPress install. You can access it through this link:

Please, help us to replicate it what you are trying to achieve in your site, in this way we can check if this is a compatibility issue.

Please note that we only need the plugin and the related functionality, you don't need to setup a entire website or clone your existing site.
