I just bought WPML and in the set-up I accidentally chose that the site language was in English, but it is in danish... I have tried to delete and reinstall the plugin, but I can't come back to choose the original site language anywhere. All of my pages is in the English category and I can then choose to add a translation in danish, but I need it to be the other way around.

Furthermore, I have tried to register my site with the site key I just created, but it says invalid site key...

I hope you can help me.
Thanks in advance.

Thank you for contacting WPML Support.

=== Please backup your database and website ===

- If you have just installed plugin and configuring WPML first time on this site and do not have any translated data yet then you can fix this issue by removing WPML and all its data completely from database, To do so, please go to WPML >> Support >> Troubleshooting (the link is at the bottom of the support page). >> There, click on “Reset and deactivate WPML” >> then Delete the plugin.

- After deleting all data and WPML related plugins then please install WPML plugins again and I hope now you can choose the original site language again.

To handle site registration issue, I have created a new ticket since this is a separate issue. Here is the link to the new ticket:

Thank you
