Hello there,

Thank you for contacting WPML support. I'd be happy to assist you further on this issue.

It seems like admin texts, in order to translate the admin texts you need to create a language configuration file. Please follow the below steps:

1) Copy the following code in WPML->Translation Management -> Custom XML configuration

<wpml-config> 
<admin-texts>
<key name="my_theme_options">
<key name="option_name_1" /> 
</key> 
</admin-texts>
</wpml-config>

2) Replace the key name with the key name used to store the theme options into the wp_options table.

To understand how to find the key name, please follow the steps provided in the link: https://wpml.org/forums/topic/admin-string-translations/#post-1438841

3) Once you place the code there, go to WPML->Translation Management -> Multilingual content setup and refresh the page.

To find out more, https://wpml.org/documentation/support/language-configuration-files/

Once you have created language configuration files you need to go to WPML->String Translation and search the strings that you have inserted in the theme options and translate it into the secondary languages.

Let me know if this helps.

Thanks

Hi Shekhar,

Thank you for your answer and explanation, i only still have no idea how to find the right details. I don't know if you understand what i mean?

I would like to translate the plugin content witch i added in Dutch, as you can see here > hidden link

So it's not about a theme but it's about to translate the added input in the plugin Exit Notifier.

Thanks!

Regards, Yassine

Hello there,

The process should be same, to further debug this issue, I need to request temporary access (wp-admin and FTP) to your site in order to be of better help. You will find the needed fields for this below the comment area when you log in to leave your next reply. hidden link

This info is private and available to you and supporters only. Read more about this: https://wpml.org/purchase/support-policy/privacy-and-security-when-providing-debug-information-for-support/

Note that:

#1
Backup (both files and database) your site before giving us your credentials. You can use a plugin for this if you like. I often use the Duplicator plugin for this purpose.
See: http://wordpress.org/plugins/duplicator/

Duplicator instruction

#2
It would be better if you give me the test site rather than the live site.

#3
If the issues need some changes in the plugins updates/disabling we will install a plugin called “duplicator” and replicate the site in our local server for testing.

Look forward to your reply.

Thanks
