        if (!is_admin()) {
            foreach (acf_get_field_groups() as $group) {
                $fields = acf_get_fields($group['ID']);
                if (is_array($fields) && count($fields)) {
                    foreach ($fields as $field) {
                        do_action('wpml_register_single_string', 'ACF Labels', $field['label'], $field['label']);

  • Hi!
    I love you solution, and it have helped me alot!
    However I’m struggeling with labels from fields in groups. Have you found a solution for that?

  • I fixed it by hardcoding jquery translation-strings 🙂


    $my_current_lang = apply_filters( 'wpml_current_language', NULL );
    if($my_current_lang == 'en') {
    <script src=""></script>
        $( document ).ready(function() {
    	$("form .class").html($("form .class").html().replace('Original string','New string'));
