Hello there,

Welcome to WPML support forum.

1. The first step is to check where those strings come from. Usually, they are part of WooCommerce, but depending on your theme, they could be modify them by it. For example, if you go to WPML String Translation, and you look for the string that is actually working, can you find it? Under which context is it?

2. Please check that your .mo and .po WooCommerce translation files are in
/wp-content/languages/plugins/ folder?
You can find those files here:

Hello,

Provided that you have the "WPML String Translation" AddOn installed please follow these steps:
- Go under "WPML -> Theme and plugins localization".
- Make sure that "Translate by WPML." is active.
- Scroll down to "Strings in the theme" and click on "Scan the theme for strings".
- Scroll down to "Strings in the plugins", select the plugin you want to scan (WooCommerce Checkout Page Builder For Visual Composer) and click on "Scan the selected plugins for strings".
- Once you followed the above steps go under "WPML -> String Translation". All strings available for translation should display in the table you see there.

Do you see them? If yes, all you need to do is click on "translations" next to each string you want to translate and enter + save your translations.
