Thank you for contacting WPML Support. I took a detailed look in your website and noticed you have some custom WPBakery shortcodes (modules) that is not registered for translation yet, in order to fix it, I took these steps:

1 - I registered your "plethora_headinggroup" shortcode in your WordPress Dashboard > WPML > Settings > Custom XML Configuration with the following code:


2 - Then, I made a minor editing in the page where the shortcode appears and update it, in order to trigger the shortcode registration.

3 - Now you are able to find it for translation when using the WPML Translation Editor.

You can find all the details of this approach at:

Hope it helps, have a nice day.
