Hi!

I'm translating a site from French to English using WPML.

The site uses Elementor and WP Job Manager.

Here are my questions:

1- Where can I translate job categories? (see image)

2- I translated a few jobs but the paths give an error, example here:
Valid French URL:
hidden link

Not working English URL of same job:
hidden link

What have I done wrong?

Thanks for your help.

Regards,

Hi,

Thank you for contacting WPML support!

1- Where can I translate job categories? (see image)

Can you tell me if you tried following instructions as outlined here?
https://wpml.org/documentation/plugins-compatibility/translating-wp-job-manager-using-wpml/#translating-job-types-and-categories

Not working English URL of same job:

As for this - have you tried receiving permalinks after you translated the slugs and URLs? Also, perhaps these links might help you - can you have a look to see if the issue is the same?

Hi,

1- Followed instructions and Job Categories is not listed, see image (Job Types is there and working).

Can you tell me if this is active (on my English-default site) on your site?
WPML -> Settings -> Taxonomies Translation -> Job categories (job_listing_category) -> Translatable - only show translated items

Only when I changed this setting, it started showing up (I've installed the plugin on a fresh WordPress installation).
