Hi @marloesv,

It looks like you are using an updated plugin and other plugins WPML outdated.

If you have upgraded only one plugin, please follow the steps below:

1. Go to the FTP and access the wp-content/plugins/ folder
2. Rename the 'woocommerce-multilingual' to 'woocommerce-multilingual-2'
3. You should now be able to access your site.
4. Click on the Plugins > Installed plugins
5. Update the all WPML plugins
6. Go to the FTP and access the wp-content/plugins/ folder again
7. Rename the 'woocommerce-multilingual-2' to 'woocommerce-multilingual'
8. Go to the WP dashboard and click on the Plugins > Installed plugins
9. Enable the WooCommerce Multilingual

Note, make a full backup of your site.

After following these steps, let me know if the problem persists.

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.

Thanks a lot Bruno,
With 1 and 2 I got access to my admin site again and then it turned out that I couldnot upload it as there was no code yet for hidden link, so I got a new code and then followed the other steps. I am very grateful, it all works again 🙂 🙂 🙂
