Thank you for contacting WPML Support. We can achieve it by adding some CSS code OR by adding extra div in header for mobile switcher. Could you please provide me page URL where I can see this issue and will try to provide you css to fix this issue.

Thank you

Hello there,

As Noman is not available, I would like to continue with your case.

I'm afraid that what you want is not achievable just with some CSS, you also need to modify your theme a big.

The idea is the following:
- Find the PHP file responsible of the sport where you want to display your language switcher. For this you can inspect your theme or contact your theme support.
- Once you have identify the file, add this code:


- Finally, add some CSS or go to WPML > Langauges > Custom language switcher, to make it looks l like you need.

You can find more information about it here:
