I am in the process of translating our website from German into English. and I have 2 topics that I cannot solve for now:

1. I have translated the content of the pages of the website from German into English before installing the translation management plugin (just used the basic plugin).
When I am opening a page in English now and go to the translator the existing English text does not show in the English boxes - but instead shows the original German text, but if I open the page in the WP editor the English translation is still there. How can I get these already manually translated text pages back into the translator?

2. A next issue is, that although I have managed to translate the menus, there is one widget (in the footer) that has a text (Rechtliches) and two menu items (Imprint and DataProtection). The menu items have been translated, the Title (Rechtliches) not. If I go into Widgets and change the title manually into "Legal" the whole widget in the footer disappears in the German and English version immediately.

I have looked at several tutorials on your site, which were very helpful, but I cannot solve these above issues.

The memory limit has been changed to 256M after the chat with Laura! but the problems still remain the same.

The url of our website is hidden link (the German part is published - the English part is under construction)

Thanks for your help

Best regards

Hello there,

We recently discussed this issue on chat support, so I think we can mark this issue as resolved there.
