There is a known limitation in the Copy all documents to another locale action where, if you copy all the documents simultaneously (the documents without links and the documents with content Relationship field links that reference the first ones), the links will disappear.

fr-frlocale and add it to the same release where you previously copied all the
If you copy all lower documents in the release to another locale first, you'll be safe to copy documents referring to them in a second batch. All links will be correctly mapped to their translations.
