Welcome to WPML Support.
I'll do my best to help you solve this issue.

There was a warning in your apge saying that since you were using the traditional permalink structure, you wouldn't have been able to translate slugs which is something you needed in order tu run your site's configuration.

I changed the permalink structure in Settings > permalinks and that seems to have fixed everything.

Can you please confirm that everything's ok on your end as well? i tried changing from german to English through the language switcher and it worked without issues.

Let me know how it goes.
