Hey,

The WPML plugin doesn't have to do this automatically. However, you can go to Dashboard → WPML → String Translation, select which strings you want to delete, and hit the Delete selected strings button (see the attached screenshot). You can give this a try and see how it works.

Thanks,
Radu

I was thinking about something to delete them in bulk all at once. I have thousands of strings, it will take me forever to delete them.

Hey,

For now, this is the only option to delete the strings. If you want, you can select to display up to 100 strings on the table, by using the dropdown from the right side of the page. This way, you can delete a bigger amount of strings at a time.

Thanks,
Radu
