What are you trying to translate? I have done the translation

What are you seeing? (please include a screenshot) the screen for translation shows I have entered and saved my translation, but the site is still showing English content in this section.

What's missing or not working for you? String translation
I have entered all translations in the string translation. But text is still showing in English. Please see screenshot attached.

I'm happy to help and to make things faster, I would like to ask for your WordPress Login Details to your site.

I would also need permissions to enable/disable themes and possibly change some WPML settings.

IMPORTANT: Make a backup before providing the login details.

I've marked the next reply as private so that only you and I can see the details.

Thank you for providing details.

Unfortunately, the login details didn't work.

Please follow the below steps to see if that resolves the issue.

1. Go under “WPML -> Theme and plugins localization”
2. Make sure that “Translate themes and plugins using WPML's String Translation only” is active
3. Scroll down to “Strings in the theme” and click on “Scan the theme for strings”
4. Scroll down to “Strings in the plugins”, select all plugins and click on “Scan the selected plugins for strings”
5. Once you followed the above steps go under “WPML -> String Translation”. All strings available for translation should display in the table you see there.

Now search for all the texts you want to translate and make sure all of those are translated and marked as complete.

Thank you for providing the details.

Unfortunately the code of the theme you are using seems very cryptic and I was unable to find any reason why the string translation is not working.

I was also unable to find your theme on our WPML compatible list:

At this moment, I suggest you to contact the theme author in order make the theme compatible with WPML to get the string translation working.

I understand this may not the ideal response you were hoping for but that is all I have for you.

Please contact your theme author and let me know if you have any other questions for us!

Good day Rajeeb, please see attached screenshot. In Fact this theme is compatible with WPML, that is one of the reasons I purchased it.
and Your Plug in. If you could kindly assist me with this.
I need your assistance with this issue. And I am not sure what you mean by Cryptic...
Your plugin when purchased mentions your own site mentions Satisfaction Guaranteed.
I am in need of your assistance please, not for you to pass me off to the theme developer.
I have not modified the theme in any way and as indicated, it is compatible with your plug in.

I do see that the theme has been listed as WPML compatible by the theme author but it hasn't been tested and confirmed by WPML. That is why the theme is not listed here:

I did review your site in my local installation and tried to debug the issue. However, I was unable to find why the String Translation is not working for the texts.

That is why I asked to you to contact the theme author. I hope this makes sense.

Please check in with your theme author and see if they can successfully translate the above mentioned texts with WPML String Translation since they have listed the theme as compatible.

Let me know if you have any other questions!
