This thread is resolved. Here is a description of the problem and solution.

Problem: I can't add items (pages/post/products) to the menu in the secondary languages. I can't select any element. Solution: Make sure you have some pages or some post already translated to the second language. Otherwise, no items will be displayed.

Tell us what you are trying to do?

I want to create a new menu for English language. I am not able to select any menu item. It does not show any available pages to choose from.

Is there any documentation that you are following?

I have not found any.

Is there a similar example that we can see?

No, since I have just started with WPML.

What is the link to your site?

Welcome to the WPML support team!

I'll assume that your default language is Dutch whereas your second language is English.

To translate menus, first, you have to create it in the default language as you usually would do in WordPress and then translate it to all secondary languages.

To translate Menús, please, follow this documentation:

The link contains a very well-explained video but in case you need further assistance, do not hesitate to contact me again, I'll be glad to help.

All the best,

I have German as default language and created an English language just like in the video. But I cannot choose any items on the left side. There are no pages or posts avaiable to choose from. They only appear, if i switch to German.
