  • This is not a usage question (Those should be directed to the community supported forum, unless this is a question about Polylang Pro in which case you should use the helpdesk).
  • I have searched for similar issues in both open and closed tickets and cannot find a duplicate.
  • The issue still exists against the latest master branch of Polylang and the latest WordPress version.
  • This bug happens with only Polylang plugin active
  • This bug happens with a default WordPress theme active
  • I can reproduce this bug consistently

Steps to reproduce the issue

  1. Install Polylang, check 2 languages
  2. Try to translate Author name to the second language
  3. No luck

Expected behavior and actual behavior

When I follow those steps, I see options to translate Author name in User fields group

I was expecting ability to translate Author name to language of choice.

I'd add to this that being able to translate any/all custom meta for authors would be nice.
