Hi,

Thank you for contacting WPML support.

So you are using widgets in your footer, right?
Just use this feature: https://wpml.org/documentation/getting-started-guide/translating-widgets/displaying-different-widgets-for-different-languages/
This will be easier and convenient.

No need to translate.
One widget for a language and another widget for the another language.
Pretty easy.

Let me know how it goes.

Regards,
Riffaz.
