I am trying to translate the placeholders in the billing field, but they show up in the original language, eventhough i have translated them in the String Translation in all languages.

Thank you for contacting WPML support. I'll be happy to help you with this.

I see that you have a checkout field editor plugin installed. Is the field you are trying to translate the placeholder on a standard field or is it one created with the checkout field editor? If it was created or changed, it may need to be added via WPML -> Settings -> Custom XML Configuration. You can see this similar ticket for reference:

If it is a standard field, I'd like to have you try a few things so we can try to isolate the issue. This is just to help me identify if it might be a conflict with another plugin or theme that is causing the problem.

** IMPORTANT ** Please backup a working copy of site files and database before continuing.

Update all WPML plugins & WordPress core.

Disable all plugins except WooCommerce and WPML related and then temporarily change the theme to a default WordPress such as TwentyFifteen. With these settings, is the issue resolved?
