Hello there,

Thank you for contacting WPML support. I'd be happy to assist you further on this issue.

To change the default language you can go to the WPML -> Languages page and select the preferred language.

After switching your default language the URLs will automatically change. But if you have added some links manually/or on the code base itself you should change them. I highly suggest making a backup of your site before changing the language, and test in a staging site first if at all possible

Kind Regards,
