I need to change the Language Switcher to only display the short form of the language (in this case EN | DE).

I already tried some documentations but dont get it how it works...

Thank you for contacting WPML Support. You can achieve it by doing below steps:
- Go to WPML >> Languages >> Edit Languages
- Add EN / DE in Translation text boxes as in attached screenshot.
- Then Edit language switcher by pressing the pencil icon from WPML >> Languages >> Menu language switcher and select similar options as in the attached screenshot.
- Then you can use small CSS code to display language switcher separator and CSS code will be something like this:

.wpml-ls-item + .wpml-ls-item {
border-left: 1px solid #000;

Please let me know if this resolves your issue or you need further assistance with this issue.

Thank you
