Thank you for contacting us.

How will you display this content on the front end? If you are using the PHP API to display the content on your site, you can use the WPML hooks to translate this information with String Translation. For example:

// get the user field content
$username =  types_render_usermeta( "my-user-field") ;

// register to translation and display the string translated.
echo apply_filters( 'wpml_translate_single_string', $username, 'string-domain', 'name of the string' );

Then this string would be registered in WPML > String Translation and you could translate it. You can see more in our documentation:
