Thank you for contacting WPML Support.

I see that your theme defines some styles for the widgets that cause this issue on the language selector. The issue is on this CSS code (in the file: /wp-content/uploads/jupiterx/compiler/jupiterx/style.css):

.jupiterx-widget {
    margin-bottom: 1.5rem;
    font-size: .875rem;
    overflow: hidden;
    list-style: none;

The problem is that the overflow is set to hidden, so the selector is not displayed entirely when its longer than its specified height.

The best way to fix it would be to add some additional styles. You can add this line of code on any of your CSS stylesheets or directly from the admin panel by navigating to
WPML > Languages > Language switcher options > Additional CSS :

.jupiterx-widget.widget_custom_html {
    overflow: visible;

Let me know if you're able to see the entire language selector after applying this quick fix.
