Hey there,

Welcome to the WPML support forum. I'll be glad to help you!

Some very specific strings, registered via the wpml_translate_single_string hook or the deprecated call to icl_translate may not translate in some cases. It might be the case, so let's try the solution of this errata:

Please follow these steps:

- Make sure that the ../wp-content/languages/wpml/ directory exists and is writable.
- First, find the problematic string.
- Go to the WPML -> String Translation page and remove the problematic string.
- Go to the WPML -> String Translation page and in the Auto register strings for translation section, enable the Look for strings while pages are rendered option.
- Re-visit the page on the front-end where the string appears.
- Re-visit the WPML -> String Translation page and search for that string.
- Translate the string.

After translating the string, remember to un-check the auto-registration option. Please give it a try and let us know how it goes. We're looking forward to your reply.

Kind regards,
