I translated the website from German to English: hidden link
Now the Google Search only shows the English search results.
What are my options to show the German search results on Google?
The default language is German, i dont know why it only shows the English results.

If you need Login to the WP Admin please contact me.

Thanks in advance

Thanks for contacting WPML forums support. I'll be glad to help you today.

1) Could you please check the following steps?
1- Update WPML to version 4.4.12
2- Install WPML String Translation 3.1.10
3- Install WPML SEO 2.0.1

After that, please check our guide about optimizing multilingual sites using Yoast SEO and WPML. (

2) It's not related to the issue, but according to your, the WP memory limit needs to be increased. PHP memory is fine, but WordPress uses 40Mb as default. Minimum requirements for WPML are 128Mb. (Kindly check this page

Add this to the top of wp-config.php to increase WP memory:

/** Memory Limit */
define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '256M');
define( 'WP_MAX_MEMORY_LIMIT', '256M' );

I hope this helps you. If you need further info, please let me know.
