Hello @ladislavk, welcome to the WPML support Forum!

Please try the steps below:
- Make sure you have the Translation Magagement and String Translator extensions active. If not, you can download here:
- Go to WPML → Theme and Plugin Localization → Strings in the plugins
- Select the "gdpr cookie consent" plugin and click on Scan selected theme for strings
- Go to WPML → String Translation and search for the Strings
- Translate the string, check the Translation is complete field and click on Save.


If you can not find the strings, check it is possible to find it on the Translate texts in admin screen page, like on this link:

Please let me know if it worked for you.

All the best,

Thank you for reaching out to WPML Support.

I've tried the plugin you are using on a sandbox site and translating the string that you tried to translate is working fine for me as you can see here:

hidden link

Please try translating the text again using the following process:
- First, confirm that under GDRP Cookie Consent -> Cookie Law Settings, all your content is in English and correct
- Next, go to WPML -> Theme and plugins localization
- Scroll down to the Strings in the Plugins section, check the box next to GDPR Cookie Consent and click "Scan selected plugins for strings"
- Next, go to WPML -> String Translation
- Filter the list by "Select strings within domain: admin_texts_CookieLawInfo-0.9" as shown in the screenshot
- Translate all the strings that need translation
- Check your front-end to confirm they are now showing up.

Please try this and let us know if you have further issues. I was unable to log into your site using the credentials provided, so please provide tested credentials if you are unable to resolve your issue with the instructions above.
