This thread is resolved. Here is a description of the problem and solution.
Problem: If I translate strings in the String Translation interface, can I expect to retrieve them in the translator editor so some fields are filled automatically? Solution: No. This is not the way WPML works. String Translation is used to translate site’s tagline, general texts in Admin screens, widget titles and many other texts. On the other hand, WPML Translator Editors are used to translate content. Relevant Documentation: https://wpml.org/documentation/getting-started-guide/string-translation/
