Please try the following

1. go to the WC Tab manager where the string is and use the language switcher in the top header , and switch to the secondary language.

- are you able to add the translation, and save ? does it show up in both languages or remains in the secondary language ?

2. How are you translating the rest of the tabs ?
- are you using String Translation ?

Dear Bobby,
thanks for your replay,
1-i already tried this, if i use this way, will remove all data in English lang, and will be added as a new in second lang. but will be same issue for others again, as you do nothing.

2-when you create new tab, its as a new page, so you can edit it normally (without string) attached picture number 4.

you may ask why this "Additional Information" not using same method, because this tab is as default added and you can not click to open page and do translation.

the strings that were in String Translation were not the correct strings for the tab manager string that is why the translation was not showing.

i went to WPML->String Translation-> Translate strings in admin screen-> wc_tab_manager_default_layout -> core_tab_additional_information and found the string

then went to WPML->Settings->Custom XML Configuration and added the following code

        <key name="wc_tab_manager_default_layout">
            <key name="core_tab_additional_information" />
            <key name="title" />
            <key name="heading" /></key>

this allows you to translate the string in string translations as shown in the screenshot.

Note: During my troubleshooting within the Woocommerce->Tab Manager-> default tab layout

some options were rearranged, please review them and verify that everything is OK.
