Hi,

Thank you for contacting WPML support!

Since string translations do not end up in the translation jobs within translation management, it is impossible to do this directly. There are some things you could try though:
https://wpml.org/forums/topic/string-translation-no-xliff/#post-53542
https://wpml.org/forums/topic/export-string-translation-for-bulk-translation/#post-1512913
https://wpml.org/documentation/getting-started-guide/string-translation/#import-export-po

In a nutshell, an alternative to XLIFF files for string translation would be through .po files.

Regards,
Bruno Kos
