How to make a href redirect to proper languages, not only to hardcoded ones?

<a href="hidden link">Contact us</a>

Thank you for contacting us. I would be very happy to help you but I didn't fully understand what is the issue.

Do you want to translate a URL like the one you posted? If yes, you can test as below:

echo '<a href="' . esc_url( __( '<em><u>hidden link</u></em>', 'your-domain' ) ) . '">' . __( 'Contact us', 'your-domain' ) . '</a>';

Then re-scan your theme or plugin (WPML > Theme and plugins localization). Now you should be able to translate this URL into WPML > String Translation.

Please, let me know if I can help with any other questions you may have about it. I'll be happy to help.

Thank you.
