This thread is resolved. Here is a description of the problem and solution.
Problem: I want to change English translation to "Pending review", so only spanish version is visible
Solution: there are 2 different options: 1. you can hide English (if you want to publish everything together when it's ready) in WPML -> Languages 2. in WPML -> Settings -> Translated documents options select "draft" so they won't be published even if the Spanish version it is.
