Also how can I translate theme settings, for instance the footer call to action button that is added through the Salient theme and not necessarily through page elements?

Thank you!

Hi,

It could be that these strings are stored in the admin texts. Please go to WPML > String Translation and scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on the link "Translate texts in admin screens »". Then, scroll through that page and see if you find the the string. If so, tick the checkbox and click Apply to add it to the String Translation table. Now you can go back to WPML > String Translation and you should see the string added there.

Please check our documentation about this:

Kind regards,
Dennis
