I am trying to: configure different domain per language. The default language is French (hidden link) and the second language is English (hidden link).

URL of (my) website where problem appears: hidden link

I expected to see: I configured the domains in WPML with checking the "Validate on Save and without it" none of the settings worked.

Instead, I got: When the French version of the site and clicking on the language switcher for English version the site redirects to default language (French). It should load the English site (hidden link).

Steps to duplicate the issue: Simply visit hidden link and try to click on the language switcher at the top right corner of the website namely (English), you'll see it redirects to hidden link instead of loading hidden link

We suffer from the same problem. We have 4 languages (.nl/.com/.de/.fr). The top option from the language switcher should point to Dutch (.nl). Instead it points to the domain you are currently in. So, if i'm in English .com, the top link that should point to .nl pants now to .com. If i'm on the german page, the top link points to .de.

You can try it here (switcher is in the footer): -> try switching to Dutch (Nederlands).

Hi @shekhar Bhandari,
Yes the issue is resolved. Apparently it was due to incomplete DNS propagation and SSL. Thanks !
