This thread is resolved. Here is a description of the problem and solution.

Problem: How can I translate theme options?

Solution: The options in the theme customization are usually stored in the wp_options table and can be translated using the Admin Texts. Please go to WPML > String Translation and scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on the link "Translate texts in admin screens »". Then, scroll through that page and see if you find the the strings you are looking for. If so, tick the checkbox and click Apply to add it to the String Translation table. Now you can go back to WPML > String Translation and you should see the string added there.

I am trying to: translate my website from English hidden link to Deutch hidden link , but when I want to translate things from the theme I can not. So when I click on "customize" button and I change there something, it changes on the English version, but I don't want that.

PS: I am using the consultive theme

Hello Lauren, I wanted to do that even before I contacted you (I found a guide in which you provide this information). In the plugin, I, however, can not go to WPML > String Translation, as "string translations" are not there...Perhaps this option is in one of your programs that is more expensive (maybe in the Multilingual CMS), I, however, can not afford to pay $79 for a plugin that will help me with this, $29 was actually the maximum I was willing to go for. So will I be able to somehow still change my string translations, or are we in a dead end?

Hi Michal, String Translation is part of the WPML CMS package, but it is not part of the blog package. String Translation is needed in order to translate Theme options/Customization options. You can see the different features available in different versions here: https://wpml.org/purchase/

Please let me know if you need any further assistance and I will be happy to help.

That's a shame, my budget, however, won't allow me to purchase the more expensive package, so I will have to ask for refund 🙁
