Tell us what you are trying to do?
i don't want to re-translate the wordpress theme again cuz i am using it for the second time.
Is there any documentation that you are following?
Is there a similar example that we can see?
i made a website and used WPML last month, i have another website to make using the same theme, and i don't want to re-translate the theme.
What is the link to your site?

Hello, Mohammad.

Thank you for contacting the WPML support forum.

You can achieve what you need with the following steps.
Export from the old site
1. Go to WPML -> Strings Translation
2. Scroll down to the Import / Export .po section.
3. In the lower part 'Export strings into .po/.pot file' select your theme domain name. For example: twentyseventeen.
4. Check the checkbox 'Also include translations' and from the select field, select the language with the translation that you need.
5. Press the 'Submit' button.
6. Save the file to your computer.

Import to the new site
1. Go to WPML -> Strings Translation
2. Scroll down to the Import / Export .po section.
3. In the upper part 'Import' choose the file in the .po file: field.
4. Check the checkbox 'Also create translations according to the .po file' and choose the corresponding language (the one which you included in the export process).
5. In the 'Select what the strings are for:' field select your theme domain. For example: twentyseventeen.
6. Press the 'Submit' button.
Now the translated strings from your theme should be imported to the new site.
