Link to a page where the issue can be seen: see German screenshot attached

I expected to see:no overlapping of page with top menu - see English site screenshot attached

Instead, I got: overlapping of page and top menu

Thank you for contacting WPML Support. I will be glad to help with this.

The german menu is too long for the maximum width allowed by the theme, If you update some of the menu items to have less text, this will resolve this issue. The theme may be supporting nested items, or you can remove the homepage link and translate the myLotus logo link to point to each language homepage. The logo link will be part of theme options and could be translated following this article.

Let me know what do you think.

Best regards,
WPML Support
