I am trying to: update a few translations for the plugin The Event Calendar

Link to a page where the issue can be seen: hidden link

I expected to see: Exporter tous les événements (added ''tous'') and changer évènement to événement (second accent is different).

Instead, I got: no changes. I tried importing the modified .po file, my settings are correct in Plugin localization (string + .mo backup). I also tried updating the po/mo by FTP.

Also, how can I translate the slug? I see in Taxonomy translation that I can translate events categories, but not the event itself. For example, current url to access all the events is but I'd like to translate it to

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

Once you import the .po changes, you need to go to WPML -> String Translation and look for the changed strings (you can filter here by domain). You may need to reset the strings as complete, it may show a status of "Translation needs updating".

As for translating the slug, you can go to WPML -> Settings and scroll down to the post type section. Here, you should see Events and if it is set to Translate, there should be a checkbox to translate the slugs. Once you check that box, you will see the fields available for translating the slug.

Please let me know if you need any further assistance and I will be happy to help.
