as you can read here
particularly in the section How to translate “Custom Post Types”?
With WPML you can translate the CPTs that come with your theme, CPTs that you have created using a plugin, and CPTs that you have coded as shown in this tutorial..
- Navigate to WPML -> Translation Management and click on the Multilingual Content Setup tab and scroll down to the Custom Posts section.
- Set the your CPT to be translated. (Set-CPT-to-be-translatable.png)
- Click on the Save button.
- Go to the Custom Field Translation section and set the custom field created to translate or to copy depending if you need to translate or copy thru the languages.
- Click on the Save button. (Set-custom-fields-to-be-translatable.png)

Now, you're able to translate your Custom Post Type.
Please let me know if you need some more help.
Thank you, Francesco
