I am trying to: Make a transparent background for language switcher

Link to a page where the issue can be seen:hidden link

I expected to see: transparent background on hover on all items

Instead, I got: grey background on current language item when I hover over other options and I cannot locate in the browser inspector

Thank you for contacting WPML Support. You can fix this issue by adding below CSS in WPML >> Languages >> Additional CSS section:

.wpml-ls-legacy-dropdown a:hover, 
.wpml-ls-legacy-dropdown a:focus, 
.wpml-ls-legacy-dropdown .wpml-ls-current-language:hover>a {
    color: #fff !important;
    background: transparent !important;

And it will look as in the attached screenshot.

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

Thank you
