Tell us what you are trying to do? I would like to change the wordpress theme of my site and therefore, in order to clean the database as much as possible, I would like to start a complete NEW wordpress, with a new Database . Therefore, I would like to export the information concerning WPML translations , mainly from pages and posts. Do you know if with the wordpress export/import tool the WPML set ups are also exported? How can i Make this?

What is the link to your site? hidden link

Please note I would like to start a completely new wordpress , with the new theme and the new database , where I would like to import most of the information from the actual webpage. When everything will work well with the new design , i will put it in to be the new design for the homepage.

You could tell me just to install the new theme in todays wordpress, but this is something I dont want to make, as part of my objective is to clean as much as possible the database and the wp-content folder (with pictures no longer being used, etc) . thank you
