We are a translation agency and we are done translating this site into English for our client.

Our client has his own webdesigner, but she does not use WMPL.

She will go on adding and modifing content, but she wants to do everything outside WPML.

Can I just remove/deactivate WPML without causing any problem with the site? I mean, we don't want to use WPML anymore but they want to keep everything we've translated with WMPL in English.

Some background information: we are a small translation agency and sometimes translate website for our clients with WPML. We have no background in web design, so please have that into account when providing an answer (please do not use very specific vocabulary and explain clearly where each option/button is located).

Thank you for contacting WPML support.

We apologies for a late reply.
Your ticket somehow stuck up into chat queue in progress mode.

- you translated from English to Dutch, right?
- in this case, if you disable WPML you will lost Dutch pages and contents.
- but your English contents will be same as you have now because your site primary language is English.

Let me know if you need anything else regarding this.
