(The chat has just disconnected twice and I lost all that I have written...).

I'm currently testing the WPML 4.5 beta version and I have 2 questions :

- I saw we have to use the advanced translation editor when using the automatic translation service. the problem is that some strings are not translated (ex : Divi contact form fields). I just can translate them through Divi builder. No other way to do it ?

- Also, why is the string translation menu not accessible when using the automatic translation service ?

Hi there!

1) Can you test if you can translate the form fields using WPML 4.4.12? i just want to make sure what you're mentioning is not a regression.

If you can't in 4.4.12 either, then we might have a bug and i'd split the ticket and let you know how to continue with this problem.

2) What do you mean that the string translation menu is not available? if you go to WPML > String translation, you can't see the page loading there? or is it something else?

WPML > String translation should always be available, no matter if you're using the automatic translation option ("translate everything") or "translate some" option in WPML > Settings.

1) Using WPML 4.4.12, its working.

2) the string translation plugin is activated (Version 3.1.10) but is not available in the WPML menu...

Please install String translation Beta version as seen here:

Can you see it then?
