I am trying to: translate all string from site, but it doesn't work.

I visited this URL: hidden link

I expected to see: in filter menu translated all strings like Status nekretnine, Lokacija, Tip nekretnine...

Instead, I got: Property Status, Location, Property Type...

Hello and thank you for contacting WPML support!!

Can you please check that such strings are localize in your theme using gettext function __() or _e().

I would like to know from which file such string is coming from. Can you please send me full path of your file from where these strings are displaying.

I can see that you did not uploaded MO file and have chose option "Translate using .mo files." at:
=> WPML => Theme and plugins localization

I believe you were confused in option "Translate by WPML" and "Translate using .mo files." Please refer following link that will help you to eliminate your doubts:

If you do not have MO files, you should set option "Translate By WPML", scan your theme/plugin for strings and translate into all secondary languages from: WPML => String Translation

First, I selected "translate by WPML" but it doesn't work and WMPL plugin automatically deselects and selects "Translate using .mo files". You can try that and see will it work. Second, I tried "Translate using .mo files". There is .mo file in theme and its empty (but there is .po file with strings). Could you set up "translate by WPML" so that works or "Translate using .mo files"? You can test with string " Property Status" from homepage. Try to produce anything.

When I tried to save option "Translate by WPML" it was throwing "500 internal server error" as there is an issue with memory. I have raised the memory to 512M by adding following lines to your wp-config.php file at the top of the file.

 define( 'WP_MAX_MEMORY_LIMIT', '512M' );
 define( 'WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '256M' );

Now, I have set the option "Translate by WPML" and you can see the string Property status is translated when you change the language.

You need to translate all strings into your secondary language in order to see string translation in effect from:
WPML => String Translation

Thanks man. You solved our problem. Just one more question. We will have 4 languages on site. Is this enough memory you set up or should we raise more? What is maximum size, and will be any problem if we raise?
