I began with the plugin by making duplicate of entire pages in new language.

Now for unknown reason, the plugin shows another type of translation. But I'm not able to make real duplicate of the entire page and then translate myself inside the page.

I did switch back to classic editor but still can't get the duplicated page.
Please help

I removed the credentials from your previous post because they were exposed in the public forum. Please do not add sensitive information without us opening a private reply. As further precautions, I'd suggest editing them.

From what you write, it seems you have enabled the WPML editor. To disable it, please follow instruction from here:

Please notice that all not 100% completed translation will continue appearing in the WPML editor even if you disabled it, until they are not completed. After that, you can edit them manually.
