Have installed the WPML String Translation, have uploaded the & it is found on the WordPress dashboard, have checked the "Translate by WPML".
Now - I have a simple text widget on my second sidebar which needs to be translated, when I translate it using the "String Translation" & marks translation as completed - it does not appear on the site.
Should I make any changes in the actual DB table (wp_options) or in wp-includes/widgets.php, or am I missing something ?

Hi, I have exactly the same issue on my website (wordpress). Some strings are translated on WPML, but when I open the site it is not translated.
Even worse, the website was translated to 2 languages. Sometimes one string appears translated in one language, but in English on the other one.
Probably I am doind something wrong, but I am not sure what it is.

I am very new to the plugin, but I'll try to help -
If you followed the installation process (uploaded the .mo file, and checked the translate by WPML option) and still it does not work - I have seen another step here on the Forum that you can take - <a href=""></a>, anyway I actually did not use that but double checked the strings are not equal and that all the rest is well configured, and it did work.
Hope that helps
