i can't translate some strings with field translation activated. When i click on edit(screenshot 1) it shows me a textfield "english" instead of "german" (screenshot 2). Typing in something wont have any effect.

My languages are english and german (default language).

When adding a third language (dutch) it shows me the dutch field and i can translate the string into dutch (screenshot 3)

the strings are created by the module drupal commerce and i guess they are field titles.

Change the default language back to english and you should be able to translate it.

Right, field titles and description are only translatable 'from default language' so if you are mixing English / German fields it won't work.

Also we are just translating Drupal core fields. Then about commerce or other entities' fields, it is that module that should take care of that new entities and fields.

But Jose, the string come from drupal commerce in english, if i have one installation with the default language unlike english i will never can translate this string...

if you got this translation issue you probaly got this too: #1451132: Translation issue "Billing information" + "Shipping information"
