I'm trying to translate the values assigned to a particular custom field - but they don't seem to be available with STRING TRANSLATION. I'll be providing you with credentials for a staging site, and the particular field I'm talking about is wpcf-sales-country. It has been assigned multiple values (Belgium, Germany, France, Japan, ...) but none of these show up in the list of strings available for translation.

On the other hand, I can translate the values of other custom fields. In particular, I STRING TRANSLATION even shows strings for custom field types that have been deleted from the database - for example:

field country-of-sales option wpcf-fields-select-option-ae2247e29eaabe8127519a14d34d3203-1 title

That is VERY CONFUSING, to say the least. Is there any option to clean up the list of strings after a custom field type has been deleted?

One more thing: I'm not able to activate WPML on the clone for which I'll be providing access - in spite of the fact that a key has been generated on & that I have a perpetual license.

One more final thing: it seems that I'm unable to provide you with site access only on this ticket. So I'll provide you with username & password in reply to your first contact.

I found a solution myself. I overlooked that this was a single line field, and hence needs to be translated directly on the custom post itself - rather than thru string translation.
