@AlleyOop, acf-exported-fields.php is created when you go to Custom fields / Import/Export and click on “Download export file”. Then you have to include that file in your functions.php file. I don’t know of any way to translate the fields while they’re in the database though.
Sorry for not replying about the spinning wheels. I guess it got sorted on some update! Is there a more dynamical way of translating the fields in backend now? It would be great to have all the text-strings automatically wrapped in “translation tags” upon export. Labels, instructions etc.
