This thread is resolved. Here is a description of the problem and solution.
Problem: I am trying to translate Woocommerce Product Categories that have a description. The product categories get translated with the products, but the description is not sent to the translation service.
Solution: That option is not possible at this time. Translating taxonomy description is only possible via WPML -> Taxonomy Translation.
We are working to include this feature in one of the next versions of WPML.
