I am trying to:

Have a different logo on a language.

I am using Dynamix Theme.
I try to add the string by scanning the theme (not working)
Then by the page "Translate admin screen text" in WPML

Checked the string :
Dynamix_option
-branding_url
--url

But when I applied, I have the confirmation message but after a reload the checkbox is not checked, and the string is still not visible in the string translation page.

I increased my PHP memory to 512M,
Try again with all plugin except WPML desactived
Won't work.

I try manually by adding the file wpml-confil.xml to the root folder of my theme;
<wpml-config>
<admin-texts>
<key name='dynamix_option'>
<key name='branding_url' />
<key name='url />
</key>
</admin-texts>
</wpml-config>

won't work...

Link to a page where the issue can be seen:

Hi Nathan,

Thank you for providing us with the access details !

i went to WPML->Translation Management->Custom XML tab and slightly changed your xml code to the following

<wpml-config>
    <admin-texts>
        <key name="dynamix_options">
            <key name="branding_url" />
            <key name="*" /></key>
    </admin-texts>
</wpml-config>

this did include the strings to String Translation.
