I am trying to:

Translate the footer Widget text. The title was no problem. The text problem I tried to solve with other topics here in the support area. I found almost the same problem where the answer was to search for it in the admin texts. So I went to the admin texts and found the widget text. I bring it to the string translation area and translate it. But it doesn't work 🙁

What did I wrong ...can you help me?

Best regards.


PS.: It's about "Zur Belegungsübersicht" and "Buchen" ...thats the 2nd widget in the footer area.

Thank you for contacting WPML support.

So it's a widget in your footer, right?
Just use this feature:

No need to translate.
One widget for a language and another widget for the another language.
Pretty easy.

Let me know how it goes.
