I am trying to: Export strings from a text domain in String Translation as a POT file. Send the POT file to my translator. Then upload the translated file and see my strings appear.

URL of (my) website where problem appears: (Not applicable)

I expected to see:
The translations for my strings appear

Instead, I got:
The translations did not appear

Steps to duplicate the issue:
Do you have a knowledge base article as to how to I can export a .POT file for strings in a certain text-domain.
Translate the the .POT file.
How do I create a resulting .PO file?
How am I supposed to upload the resulting .PO file?

Hello, Jhon.

Thank you for contacting the WPML support forum.

In WPML -> Strings Translation at the bottom you will find a section called 'Import / Export .po'.
From that section, you can export .po files from the different text domains.
And after the translation, you can import the files back through this section.
Please, see this link from our documentations.
In the link below you can also read about how to translate the.pot files.

Please, let me know if you have any more questions about it?
