Tell us what you are trying to do?

Change in bulk, every post/page/taxonomy etc. content language to a different language.

Is there any documentation that you are following?

No, only same questions on this forum that don't actually resolve the issue. You can only change each post/page language separately.

Is there a similar example that we can see?

https://wpml.org/forums/topic/switch-language-of-current-content/ This changes the language of one post/page, but not the language of every single page/post/custom post type/ taxonomy, everything.

What is the link to your site?

In development currently, it's zdravearterie.sk.

That's unfortunate, thanks.

Will try resetting WPML and installing anew and setting current language to a different language then. This should work right? 🙂

I found the solution: like i described it; I reset the plugin and just configured it anew with the new language as default 🙂
