Hello,

Thank you for contacting WPML Support.

You can enable this option by navigating to String Translation > More options > Translating users of types > Edit and select the type of users that you want to translate. Please check attached screenshot.

Once this is enabled the strings will be shown in the String Translation.

If you have any doubts, please let me know.

Thanks,
Rohan

Hello,

Please try searching using the admin username.
For eg, if your username is "admin". Try searching that string.
It will be under the "Author" domain.

Thanks,
Rohan

Hi,

tried, but still no luck. String translation will find "Admin", but only under sitepress and layerslider. Want to give new names for all users (adminstrator, editor and etc). On the moment shows these in Estonian language (Haldur, Toimetaja, Autor, Kaastööline, Lugeja, Klient, Poe haldur), but String translation don´t find nothing. What I am doing wrong?
