I am trying to: translate the HOME page from Dutch into English

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

I expected to see: The English HOME and a language switcher

Instead, I got: A missing menu item for the HOME page

Debug info says it's invalid?

Please see my screencast here: hidden link

Thank you!

Thank you for sharing with us the screencast !

As a test please go to your "Home Page" and click "edit" for the default language, then use the language switcher flag on the top header and switch to the secondary language.

are you able to see it in the backend now viewing with the standard WP editor ?

what are your results if you click on the permalink from within the edit page, does the page open ?

In addition Please go to WPML => Support , and click on "Troubleshooting" while in the Troubleshooting page please perform the actions. (specifically "set language information" but i recommend performing all of them"

let me know your results

When I followed your solution, it appeared that the HOME page was in the trash. I've made earlier tests with this page. I restored it, and now all is working fine.
