I try to translate the name/label of a CPT which I created with the Pods plugin.

I made the CPT translatable in the WPML settings.
The English name/label is 'Projects' and when I search for that in the String Translation page, results appear, but after adding German translations the 'Projects' appearances in the German archive page still remain English.
It's the <title> tag in the CPT archive page and the heading 'Post Type Archives: Projects' that I want to translate.
After googling I tried to find something in the 'Translate texts in admin screen' page, but without success.

Can you tell me how I can get this done? Thank you!

Thank you for contacting WPML support. I'll be happy to help you with this. Can you please send me a screenshot of where you are seeing the incorrect translation for projects? When I view your project page, I'm not seeing the content on the page, or any archive pages. Perhaps a screenshot will help me better understand what you are trying to translate?

I see that the CPT slug is translated in the URL, so I just want to make sure I am understanding the issue correctly. Thanks for your help.

Sorry, should've sent the link to the German archive: hidden link

I added a screenshot where you can see the occurrences of the English/untranslated CPT's name/label. I want to translate these, so instead of 'Projects' I want 'Projekte' to show.

Thanks for the explanation. I found that in the Pods settings, there was an option to "enable" translation. I then went to Pods -> Components -> Translate and enabled German for the Projects post type. After this, when you go to edit the Pod, you will see the field to enter the label for German. I added Projekte to the label field and now it shows correctly on the frontend.

Please let me know if you need any further assistance and I will be happy to help.

Didn't expect to find it within the Pods plugin, thank you very much!
