Hello Eddy Miranda,

When you want to translate the static theme or plugin strings, you need to:
1. Install and activate the WPML String Translation add-on.
2. Go to WPML->Theme and plugins localization and choose one of the "Translate the theme and plugins using WPML's String Translation" options.
3. Scan the theme or plugins for strings. Check the video at for more details.
4. Go to WPML->String Translation and translate your strings.

If you want to translate strings provided through the admin options, you'll need to create language configuration files for your plugins and the theme.
You can read more about language configuration files at

You can also try the following steps:
1. Go to WPML->String Translation.
2. Scroll down to the bottom and click the "Translate texts in admin screens »" link.
3. Search for the strings you want to translate and select the corresponding options. Apply changes. Don't worry that some of them may be grayed out if they are checked.
4. Go back to WPML->String Translation.
5. Search for the strings you registered.
6. Translate strings according to your needs. Remember to mark translations as completed.
Please note that if the plugin or theme is not fully compatible, these steps may not work and you'll need to create the language configuration file manually.

Also, please note that neither the theme nor the plugins are officially compatible with WPML. That doesn't mean that it won't work, it just means that there might be some compatibility issues between the theme and WPML.
You can find the list of themes that are officially compatible with WPML at
