Thank you for contacting WPML support. I'll be happy to help you with this.

If you go to WPML -> Languages and edit the language switcher, try deselecting the "Current language" option. Does this resolve the issue for you?

If not, please try temporarily switching to a default theme such as Twenty Nineteen. Does the same issue happen with a default theme?

To ensure the quickest and most accurate support, please provide your debug information so that I can get a look at some of your configurations. We have an excellent article on how to located here:
