In order to translate the tagline you need String Translation plugin to be enabled and that "Translate by WPML" to be selected in WPML > Theme and plugin localizations and then to re-scan the theme for strings from the same page.

If your theme has the strings wrapped correctly in gettext calls, then the strings will be registered and you can translate them from WPML > String Translation.
You can read more on translating strings here:

Furthermore you can check here: if your theme is compatible and tested with WPML.

Let me know if you need further assistance.
