I am trying to: Update String translation, but got the error message that the update did not succeed. I tried following the instructions in the forum on how to remove and reinstall the main plugin and the try again.

Somehow nothing happens when I try to remove the main plugin?

Also, I'm afraid I have forgotten all the settings, will I have to go through and re-set all the settings for wpml for the whole site?

Hi There,

Thank you for providing the access details ! I have updated the WPML string translation plugin for you

the settings are not lost when you deactivate a WPML plugin as they are saved in the database

The topic ‘[Closed] String translation will not update, and main plugin cannot be removed’ is closed to new replies.
