I have words of translations that are suggested in yellow, is it possible to put them all in translation automatically?

Hi Julien,

Thank you for contacting WPML support. There is no automatic way, if you see translations of the text in question, marked in yellow, this is the translation coming from the theme or plugin’s .mo files. If you prefer, you can override them copy the yellow highlighted text and paste in translation box, and selecting the Use my translation option.

Also mentioned in this doc:

Thank you

Hello, thank you very much for your message.
I realized there was not an automatic way to do it. Plugins and themes have valid translation strings, it would be much easier to replace translation strings automatically and to be able to change them if needed.
You think not?

At moment it is not possible with WPML and there can be some technical issues in handling that. Its still easy to copy and paste these strings before modifying. If you would like me to submit this as a feature request please let me know. But I wonder that may not be added as we avoid doing automatic copying of strings like this.
