Hello there,

Since we only take one issue per thread, I am separating this ticket from your previous ticket, this will make users with similar problem search the solutions in future easily.

So, in order to translate the admin texts (Theme Options Fields) you need to create a language configuration file. Please follow the below steps:

1) Copy the following code in WPML->Settings-> Custom XML configuration

<wpml-config> 
<admin-texts>
<key name="my_theme_options">
<key name="option_name_1" /> 
</key> 
</admin-texts>
</wpml-config>

2) Replace the key name with the key name used to store the theme options into the wp_options table.

To understand how to find the key name, please follow the steps provided in the link: https://wpml.org/forums/topic/admin-string-translations/#post-1438841

3) Once you place the code there, go to WPML->Translation Management -> Multilingual content setup and refresh the page.

To find out more, https://wpml.org/documentation/support/language-configuration-files/

Once you have created language configuration files you need to go to WPML->String Translation and search the strings that you have inserted in the theme options and translate it for the secondary languages.

For translating widgets in the footer, please view the following document: https://wpml.org/documentation/getting-started-guide/translating-widgets/

Let me know if this helps.

Thanks
