This thread is resolved. Here is a description of the problem and solution.
Problem: How to Translate footer - it is a custom footer and I don't know how to translate it.
Solution: I have enabled footer widget translation by selecting ‘content’ checkbox from WPML >> String Translations >> Translate texts in admin screens » and hit Apply button. Now footer string is available for translation as you can see in attached screenshot. https://cdn.wpml.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/3066105-Footer_ready_for_translation.png?x52277
Now you can add translation from WPML >> String Translations.
