As per instructions found here on the forum, once I place .mo/.po in languages folder(...plugins/courspress/languages), I then need to go to General>Settings>Site Language and select which language I am working with. In this case I am working with the spanish translation for CoursePress Pro, so I've set this to Spanish. CHECK
Everything works as expected, I can see that Courspress Pro in the Dashboard has been translated and I can visit the front-end and see it to has been translated. This is the result needed except that the whole back-end(dashboard area) is now in spanish
I need the capability to translate posts/pages to spanish so I have purchased and installed WPML. During the setup I am asked to choose which languages I would like to use. I select English and Spanish. I complete the setup.
WMPL uses the first language I selected as its default(in this case English). This changes Courspress Pro translation front and back-end back to English. If I set the default here to Spanish, all works fine, but now I am unable to read the Dashboard/Wordpress at all as its in Spanish. Setting it back to English again I lose the translation for CoursePress Pro
Found that the .mo and .po translation files(cp-es_ES) for courspress works when placed in plugins>courspress>languages. However, when I install WMPL, WMPL's default setting overrides the courspress pro translation. I am not able to have Courspress Pro translated and have the back-end readable in english.
If I dont have WPML activated i get the results I am looking for..almost. Because I have set the General>Settings>Site Language and select which language I am working with to spanish, the whole backend gets translated to spanish when all I need is courspress pro both front and back end to be translated.
