After creating a translation what is the proper way to remove it later if I wanted?

As a test I created a translation of my homepage. After using the move to trash function it actually seems to have either moved the original page to the trash or will not allow me to change the front page back to homepage because the translation is not found.

Languages: English (English ) Portuguese (Brazil) (Português )

On the top bar of the WordPress dashboard, you have a language selector. You may have to delete the wrong page in the default language.

To remove the translated page, you must switch the language in the top bar and select the page you want to remove, just as you delete a normal page. Note that you have to "empty the trash," after you remove a page.

Please let me know if you are satisfied with my answer and if I can help you with any other questions you might have.

Thank you.

I believe this has solved my issue.

I created an empty page, then I add some content from the original contacts page.
Translated the page and it's empty 🙁
