I mentioned my problem in someone else's thread but they believe their issue is with Google and I'm not sure mine is. Sorry if this is repetitive and a long story.
I followed the instructions I found in the WordPress forum for making modifications to Google translations. After a bit of back and forth, I was successfully able to make a correction, which appeared immediately on my website. Thinking everything was okay, I logged out of my website.
The next day, the corrections weren't working. Just messing around, I added the shortcode to one of my pages and then the corrections started working. Again, thinking the problem was fixed, I logged out.
Next day, corrections aren't working and now nothing I seem to do will fix it. I've tried different combinations of adding the shortcode, removing the shortcode, removing the widget...
Any ideas? I am rather desperate. We are supposed to launch this website in a couple of weeks.
