Child Theme Translation Doesn’t Work

1. When using a child theme, it is necessary to adjust Custom XML Configuration.
Please copy content from …/dt-the7/wpml-config.xml and paste it in WPML > Settings > Custom XML Configuration.
Replace “the7” with your child theme name (please avoid capital letters and hyphens in child theme name). For example, if you child theme name is “My-Super Theme”, you should write
key name=”mysupertheme”

2. Get back to “String Translation” section of WPML and try to translate and save:

2015-02-09_1733

If the translation process doesn’t work properly, or a word is not found, please reset the wpml strings. To do that, copy wpml-config.xml file from the parent theme folder to the child theme folder, change the theme name in the file. Also ensure to disable WPML and related plugins and re-enable them.
