What are you trying to translate?

I'm trying to translate publishing dates on posts into Chinese

What are you seeing? (please include a screenshot)

So the format for a Chinese date goes (month)月(day)日(year)年.

However, WPML string translation only seems to have done half the job.

What's missing or not working for you?

Hello Stephen,

Welcome to WPML support forum.

The field you are displaying is only referring to the format. If you want to translate the content also, you need to look for the corresponding strings. For example, look for "January" and translate it according to your project.

Best regards,
Andrés

My months appear to already have been translated, leaving the days and years untranslated.

I've looked into the "default" domain for the strings, but the translations don't seem to have an effect.

Would you happen to know which is the proper domain to translate the date numbers other than month?

From the information I have, I really can't tell. I recommend you to contact your developer (license owner) and request him to open a ticket in our technical forum where we will have the needed tools to investigate your situation.
