I am using BuildPress theme with a child theme which I created.

The translations work great under the parent theme, however the translation does not work when I switch to the child theme.

The parent theme already contains a wpml-config.xml file which reads as follows:
<wpml-config>
<admin-texts>
<key name="theme_mods_buildpress">
<key name="charset_setting" />
<key name="projects_title" />
<key name="projects_subtitle" />
<key name="projects_slug" />
<key name="prev_project_btn" />
<key name="next_project_btn" />
<key name="footer_left_txt" />
<key name="footer_right_txt" />
</key>
</admin-texts>
</wpml-config>

These are the fields I want to translate.

I tried to copy the wpml-config.xml file from the parent to the child theme, I tried to rename theme_mods_buildpress to something like theme_mods_buildpress_child in the wpml-config.xml child theme, I even tried deleting the parent's wpml-config.xml file as suggested by David in some other thread with no success.

Please help. I am out of options.
