I just found out that I can only change the visibility from published to private when switching the post to where it was created on the language.
Is it possible if I can change the visibility to my current langauge?
I am using chinese traditioinal, and my post was created on english language.

Thank you for contacting the WPML Support Forum.

It should usually be possible to change the status of each post or page. While on the native WordPress Editor for posts or pages you can change the language in the top admin bar (flag).

Then the status should able to be changed for each content respectively.

Please take note, that this might not work for WooCommerce products, as these are not individual posts, but copies of each other.

In case you are anyhow not able to change the status could you please test, if the issue persists if you disable any additional plugin and test only with WPML and our add-ons?

Let me know about the results. I hope this answered your question and solved the issue.

Kind regards
