Hi rondaP,

Thank you for contacting support forum.

Can you please do following for me?

1. Ensure that Translation for the mentioned strings are marked as complete in String Translation module.

2. Deactivate all non-related wpml plugins and switch to default wordpress theme (Twenty Fourteen or Twenty Fifteen), check if similar issue persists or not?

// Note: Please take database backup before performing above mentioned step.

Let me know your response.

Hi Ankit,

I have tried the steps you mentioned but it is not working for me.

Attached is the screenshot of the string translation page. Also i tried disabling all the plugins and switched to Twenty Fifteen theme.

But I still can't see the translations.

I would request you consider providing me with 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 (See attachment). The information you will enter is private which means only you and I can see and have access to it.

Hello, I am George from second tier support.
I have found out the issue and I reproduced it.
It appears that currently we have problem with these translations, so if you specify a static string there - it is not getting translated. This will be resolved in WPML 3.2 when released.

However if you use the variables for these parameters instead (like in a default WordPress Seo setup) - because they are translated on other place - they will be translated.

As a second workaround, you may want to test our latest beta version - the issue might be resolved there. However I would recommend you to not use that version for production and wait for the release of the stable version.
