Dear Carlos,

May you tell me in steps on how to translate the copyright text on the footer? I've tried to translate it from Uncode -> Footer -> Copyright Area -> Custom Copyright Text but it will be applied to all languages, even if I switch the theme to other languages.

Thank you,

Ernest

Hello,

Welcome to the WPML support forum. I will do my best to help you to resolve these issues.

In some cases, it is possible that those strings have been recognized but not associated yet to the String Translation panel for the translation. Please try the following steps after a backup and let me know your feedback.

1) Please increase the *MaxInputVars* of PHP settings to *10000*. Please check the following article for more details or contact your system admin/hosting provider for this purpose.

2) Visit WPML>>String Translation
3) Click on the blue link at the bottom of the page: "Translate texts in admin screens »"
4) Look for an option similar to "theme_mod_uncode", or something like that. Here you should find all strings associated with your theme options.
5) Check the checkbox for your strings of interest.
6) Click on the button "Apply"(at the bottom of the page)
7) Now, all your selected strings should appear in the String Translation panel and you can translate those strings

Dear Bigul,

I've tried your method but seems that I cannot find the footer text items at "theme_mod_uncode", do you have other solutions?

Thank you,

Ernest

Hi Ernest,

Thank you for the login information. The footer text is already registered for the translation and it works when I translated it to Chinese Simplified. Please visit WPML>>String Translation and search for the string. Then you can translate it. It is registered under *admin_texts_uncode* string domain.

Please check the attached images for more details and let me know your feedback.
