Hello Ooluja,

Yes, the situation is this:
This additional feature has not made it (yet) into our internal feature list.

Reason being is similar to what Harshad mentioned here: http://wpml.org/forums/topic/removing-images-from-gallery-wpml-media/#post-69820
"The media translation plugin will allow to use the same uploaded media (images, audio, movies, etc.) in different translations, without having to re-upload duplicate content."

Means basically, if WPML would automatically delete the media then a lot of other users would have a problem with it - they need to reupload their Media files again and cannot re-use them.

The topic ‘[Closed] WPML Media delete images on translation’ is closed to new replies.
