ACFML 1.1 allows you to set the translation preferences of custom fields from within the field group page.
This feature has been requested by many of our clients who use the Advanced Custom Fileds plugin on their WPML multilingual sites. In previous versions of ACFML, you had to set the translation preference for each custom filed from the Multilingual Content Setup box when editing a post or from the Custom Field Translation section on the WPML Settings page. Now, with ACFML 1.1, you can easily set the translation preference for any custom field from within the field group page.

Now you can easily set the custom fields translation preference when creating the field group from the Translation Preferences section.
Reviewing the translation preference after updating to ACFML 1.1
Setting the custom fields translation preference from the Field Group screen is introduced in ACFML version 1.1. If you have set the translation preference for your custom field(s) using an older version of ACFML, you will see a red tooltip icon next to that field. It indicates that the translation preference of that fields needs to be reviewed. Otherwise, the default value (Don’t translate) will be set.
Please make sure to review the translation preference of the fields that require revision before updating the field group.
