George, I still don't understand why "Office Hours" is translated, but "Address" or "Phone" is not translated. They are all translated in string translation and set as completed. Maybe you can check again? Since it works with one, it should work also with the others...
The plugin is not useful for me, it translate the content, but not the labels.
thanks.

George, you are right!! And I also used the widget logic also for the newsletter widget as I remembered now.... Ok, works in this way! Thanks a lot! Issue resolved and I will contact the author. BUT maybe you can tell me what exactly I have to tell the author. thanks.

Why some fields are not translating - this requires a lot of debugging - it might be that these fields are not passed trough apply_filters calls - that is required for widget texts, or the problem might be timing.

I am very happy that you will be able to resolve the issue.

For the plugin/theme author, you can point him to our documentation for troubleshooting string translation here: https://wpml.org/documentation/support/troubleshooting-string-localization/
and to our API that can make for him to translate text very easily here: https://wpml.org/documentation/support/wpml-coding-api/wpml-hooks-reference/
