Before in the theme option (Highend Theme):

We can setup a DEFAULT post sidebar per language example:
English: "Sidebar 1"
Dutch: "Sidebar 2"

but when we change different language the sidebar are still the same.

Thank you for contacting WPML support. I'll be happy to help you with this.

Just to make sure I understand correctly, your theme has an option that allows you to set different sidebars for different languages? Please share with me the URL of a page that has been translated so I can see this on the front end of your site.

Also, have you translated the widgets that are in each sidebar? Widgets can be translated by going to WPML -> String translation and filtering by the Widgets text domain.

If everything is translated, I'd like to have you try a few things so we can try to isolate the issue. This is just to help me identify if it might be a conflict with another plugin or theme that is causing the problem.

** IMPORTANT ** Please backup a working copy of site files and database before continuing.

Update all WPML plugins & WordPress core.

Disable all plugins except WPML related. With these settings, is the issue resolved?
