My website has some unique domains for local markets. Is it possible to add custom URLs to language switcher? I would like to add a link which directs users to another domain. PS! I don't want to disable directories. I need both solutions:
1. Different languages in directories for: ENG, RUS and EST
2. A different domain per languages for: DE and FIN

Any ideas how can I add DE and FIN also to language switcher?

Thank you for contacting WPML Support. It is not possible to mix different setup for the languages url format or add a custom url for the WPML language swticher as these urls are built internally by WPML.

Maybe you can achieve the desired results with a bit of customizations to the current WPML code base, something really out of our support scope, I recommend you to get in touch with one of our WPML Contractors at regarding the possibilities of this approach. Sorry for not being so helpful here as we would like to be. Have a nice day.
