Thank you for contacting WPML!

First of all, please make sure your server meets all the requirements for running WPML:

From the debug information, I see that you need to update your MySQL version as well increase WP Memory Limit.

Now, switch to a default theme like TwentyNineeten and disable all plugins WPML and addons. Does it work now? If so, please activate plugins one by one to see if any of them are causing the issue.

If you need help with activating the advanced editor, please follow the instructions here:

More information on the advanced editor can be found here:

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you for your patience.

Can you please provide WordPress login details to your site? I've marked your next reply as private so that only you and I have access to it.

Thank you for providing the details.

I checked your site and was able to add a new page and translate it using Advanced Translation Editor.

If you created those translations using Classic Translation Editor, you have to choose another option to enable Advanced Translation Editor.

Please go to WPML - Settings - How to translate posts and pages - Content that was created with WPML's Classic Translation Editot and choose - Switch to using Advanced Translation Editor. Note that this might make your old translations unusable.

If you really need to use the Advanced Editor, please give that a try and let me know if you have any questions.

If you created the page using Classic Translation Editor, you would have to enable the option I mentioned on last reply to get ATE.

Please note that if you do so, your old translations maybe unusable.

Let me know if you have any questions.
