I am trying to:
Translate a button to German. Original English page was translated to German without problems. But after saving one button at the bottom of the German page switches back to its original English name.

Link to a page where the issue can be seen:
hidden link

I expected to see:
A button with German text: "Alle Produktdokumente"

Instead, I got:
A button with English text: "All Product Literature"

This worked. Thanks Riffaz!
I tried this before but probably with the latest version of WPML it is different now.
