I am trying to: translate the content of the footer widget into the english version, it does not function, either with string-translation, here only the german translation is shown

Link to a page where the issue can be seen: hidden link

I expected to see: different languages

Instead, I got: the same language in both versions

Thank you for contacting the WPML support.

It is happening because that string's language is in English now. You can change the language of strings to German. Please try the following steps after a backup and let me know your feedback.

1) Choose the string from Strings List: hidden link
2) Click on Change language of selected strings button: hidden link
3) Choose German from Change the language to: drop-down box
4) Save the changes and confirm String's Language is modified
5) Then you can translate the String into English

Also, I've noted that you are using an older version of WPML.
It's always a good practice to have your WPML and it's component up to date to ensure the compatibility and security.
