I’m using WPML with the Enfold. The main language page is English (hidden link) and the translated one Turkish (hidden link).

On the English page, you will see “Creative Solutions for your Corporate Colors.” text on the slider video. I translated it with WPML’s Advanced Translation Editor. I didn’t touch to html codes within that text block, but it is appearing like “Kurumsal Renkler <br>Yaratıcı Çözümler.”

What can be wrong with it?

Thank you,

Hello there,

I recreated the situation and followed the below steps to fix the issue, so could you please follow the same steps and let me know if this helps:

1) Update WPML translation management to version
2) Add the following code to WPML->Settings->Custom XML Configuration

                <attribute encoding="allow_html_tags">title</attribute>
                <attribute type="link" encoding="av_link">link</attribute>

3) Go to WPML->Settings->Multilingual content setup and refresh the page.
4) Now translate the content, it will work properly.

You can also check how it's working on the sandbox site, hidden link

Let me know if this helps.
