I am trying to: I translated the whole website, amazing plugin! But the links on the translated version (english) are not going anywhere anymore.

Link to a page where the issue can be seen: every page on

I expected to see:

Instead, I got:

we should have fixed the issue.

We added some code to the xml-config file and now the internal links will be translated automatically without no work from your side.

However, you need to be aware of this: when you are inserting the links, be sure to add the exact URL with https://
Otherwise, WPML will not recognize the links and they will point to the default language.

Example: I checked your homepage, and all the button links had the hidden link, not the https://
I changed one of them ("about me" at the bottom of the page) and now it's pointing to the English version. So please check this.

You will also need to resave the original pages and the translations. Before opening the translations, be sure they have the round icon next to them, not the pencil one.

Once done this, you should be ok.
