I am trying to:set the widget sidebar menu with only text and not flags

Link to a page where the issue can be seen:hidden link

I expected to see:only FR ESP GB on the top right selector and not the flags

Instead, I got:the flags

Hey Thomas,

Thank you for reaching out the WPML support!

Can you tell me how did you add the language switcher to the top right corner, please? I looked at the structure of that part and it doesn't look to be connected to a menu. First I need to understand how's this created so I can see how we can change the flags to text. This is why I'm asking for a few more details.

My top right corner is a widget in a sidebar I give you the capture screen of the customizer of the selector of language. Flags are not selected only text but on front end it doesn't appears like that
