I have done a complete translation of a web site from ENG language to chinese semplified, but now the client tell me that in not Chinese Semplified but Traditional Chinese.
So I would like to know if there is a possibility to switch the existing semplified chinese language to traditional chinese without put all content again.

you can do as it follows:
- add Traditional Chinese to your languages in WPML -> Languages
- go to WPML -> Translation Management and select all your Simplified Chinese content
- in the box Select translation options, check "Duplicate Content" near the Traditional Chinese flag
- click on "Duplicate" button
- now you should have all your content in Traditional Chinese
- if you have other stuff to translate (theme etc.) you should be able to copy or duplicate information from String Translation.

Let me know if this helps you or if you need further assistance.
