I am trying to:
Translate a string with the string translation plugin.
Link to a page where the issue can be seen:
hidden link
I expected to see:
The translation I provided.
Instead, I got:
The translation in the .mo file which should only be used as a backup.
I already checked:
The localization options.

Thank you for contacting WPML support.

I went to WPML -> Support -> Troubleshooting link -> Applied the 'Recreate ST DB cache tables' option (button) and the issue disappeared.

It seems that the cause of the issue was an outdated cache memory.

Kind regards,
