Tested (and testing) ACF 4 and 5 with WPML, yes i did translate Custom Fields and other stuff, like i did in past,alot of times but:
ACF 4 (lastes 4.3.8) dont show in backend for Translated Pages with WPML version 3.16, but it show itself if i use WPML 3.15 version,
will test today ACF 5 with older WPMLs also.
It look like they did something not ACF or im wrong.
Verified: ACF 4.3.8 and WPML 3.1.5 (working with repeater, gallery and all fields) backend and frontend (in 90% cases)
Sometimes the field disapear from backend, but if i go to Custom Fields and just update them, then they show again for translated pages, posts..
Also having lots of problems with ACF PRO 5.0.x and WPML 3.1.6
Something seems to be fundamentally broken. I tried a lot of things, hacked the ACF and WPML files to generate debug-output etc. but I can’t track down the real problem. Behaviour seems to change even with activation order of ACF and WPML plugins and/or other weird requirements.
Some fields are obviously not saved if they do not exist in corresponding translated fieldgroup (weird), at the moment a simple field in a 1-field fieldgroup can not be changed any more, etc.
From reading the WPML support forum it seems that they try to sell their “Types” plugin [#1, #2, #3, ..] as a working alternative instead of support.
As I already bought ACF PRO 5 for a customer, I would really like to use it, invested a lot of time already, but probably now have to look at “Types” as well. 🙁
Can you try ACF 5 with WPML 3.1.5 or older ones ?
Also i had problems with them also, on WPML, and after a quick chat they told me author of ACF isnt responding to their mails, dont want to work with wpml bla bla, im 70% shure its not true…
Would love if @elliot can say anything about situation, and me2 also think they want us to use Tools (plus buy Views).. i dont care i did use Tools and Views, but dont want it anymore, i slowly tested ACF and for me it was far greater tool.
Unfortunately can’t test older version of WPML, invested too much time already in this.
I’ve got issues with ACF Pro 5.0.6 and the newest version of WPML (188.8.131.52).
I want to translate field groups but the duplication hangs… that wheel keeps spinning forever.
Still have some problems,
ACF 4.3.9 and WPML 3.1.5 – the_permalink dont show for translated single page..
To be honest im not anymore shure what version to use where..
Shall try to switch to ACF 5 and try on this website..
* updated permalinks, updated ACF4 to 5, using WPML 3.1.5 – and for now all (backend-frontend) look good and working with both languages
