Hello,

Welcome to the WPML support forum. I will do my best to help you to resolve these issues.

Just to make sure, these strings are not registered for translation in WPML>>String Translation list, am I right? Most probably you can find these strings for translation from *Translate texts in admin screens" page.

Please go to WPML>>String Translation and click on the blue link at the bottom of the page: "Translate texts in admin screens »" to visit the page. From this page, we can choose the plugins/theme option strings for translation.

Please check the following documentation for more details.

Hello,

Thank you for the updates. I have tried to add the *I'm looking for* string for the translation. But somehow it is not working. So please allow me to install our *Multilingual Tools* plugin to generate the language configuration file. Please check the following documentation for more details.

https://wpml.org/documentation/related-projects/wpml-compatibility-test-tools-plugin/

https://wpml.org/documentation/support/language-configuration-files/#admin-texts

I can't find the *View All* string exactly in the frontend. So in which page it is appearing?

I have a request. Increase *WP Memory Limit* to *256*(the minimum required memory limit for WPML is *128*). Please check the following links for more details

https://wpml.org/home/minimum-requirements/

https://codex.wordpress.org/Editing_wp-config.php#Increasing_memory_allocated_to_PHP

Hello,

Thank you for the updates. I have updated the WPML language configuration(in WPML>>Settings>>Custom XML configuration) and theme option strings are registered for translation. Please translate it from WPML>>String Translation and make sure you are getting the expected result or not.

The *View All* string is added to the homepage as custom shortcode attribute. So I have added the language configuration for it. Please update the Homepage after a minor edit to refresh the translation settings and check the *View All* string is showing for translation in WPML Translation Editor.

Please check the following documentation and attached images for more details.
