Hi,

Welcome to WPML Support theme.

It could be that you're translating the wrong string in String Translation page. To translate the 'contact' button text, please follow these steps:

-go to WPML > String Translation.
-scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on the link "Translate texts in admin screens »".
-search for 'splite_opts'.
-Under it find 'side-button-text'. Tick the checkbox and click Apply to add it to the String Translation table.
-Now you can go back to WPML > String Translation and you should see the string added there. Translate the string completely and save.

I have attached an image for your reference.

Please check our documentation about this:
https://wpml.org/documentation/getting-started-guide/string-translation/#admin_texts

Does it help? Please let me know.

Kind regards,
Dennis
