What do you guys mean with 'text domains'?

4. Auto-registering strings for translation
Go to the WPML -> String Translation page and scroll down to the Auto register strings for translation section. Click the Edit button and make sure that all text domains are selected. --- ---Excluding any text domains can lead to performance issues as WPML would need to load the .mo files.

with best regards,

Hello Jerry,

Thank you for contacting WPML Support. The text domain is a unique identifier WordPress uses to distinguish between all the loaded translation, every theme/plugin in WordPress should have a unique text domain in order to make it possible the WordPress localization functions to work properly. You can read the full details regarding it at: Please, let me know if it helps, have a nice day.
