Tell us what you are trying to do?
Translate the header and footer.

Is there any documentation that you are following?

Is there a similar example that we can see?

What is the link to your site?

Hi,

on the Sandbox I couldn't reproduce the issue, the buttons are translating correctly so there must be something on your site preventing this.

I just sent you a private message with instruction for creating a copy of your site so I can further check the issue.

I found the issue. When I turn off the child theme, it works. Its dont work with the child theme. And the "Einloggen" button is not the right button. it is from a other place. I cant find the right button from header to translate.

Hi,

can you try to scan the strings of the child theme in WPML -> Theme and plugins localization and see if the correct strings appear?

You may also install the child theme on the Sandbox for me to check further.

Hi,

in the end I had to look at your site because the settings are a bit different.
The strings you were searching for are in the string admin page.
You should add this code in the Custom XML configuration tab in WPML -> Settings

<wpml-config>
    <admin-texts>
        <key name="codevz_theme_options">
            <key name="header_5_right" />
            <key name="header_5_center" /></key>
        <key name="the7dtchild">
            <key name="bottom_bar-text" /></key>
    </admin-texts>
</wpml-config>

After doing that, reload your home page to register the strings, then go in WPML -> String Translation, you should find them there.

Let me know if this helps you or if you need further assistance.

Hi,

I added the string for Enloggen because I missed there were 2 similar, but for the telephone number that is the only one and I can't tell why it doesn't appear in the front end.

If you disable all your plugin can you see it? Can you add it to the Sandbox?
