Hello there,

Welcome to WPML support. I'd be assisting you further on this issue.

Are you expecting the strings to be auto-translated? if yes, it's not possible.

You can see most of the strings with there translation, probably due to the fact that they have a mo/PO files with translations and WPML is scanning those PO/mo files and registering them.

If you have already had .mo/.po files then place the .mo/PO files in the wp-content/languages folders and go to WPML->Themes and plugin localization and scan the theme once.

Let me know if this helps.

Hi.. Great! It worked perfectly!

The last thing to resolve... is the meta description and SEO title that appear in English instead of French...

The meta description of that page "ACCEUIL" is currently in French and I don't want it to be translated as we have an English page "HOME" with the meta description in English.

Can it be resolved through WPML?
Thank you.
