I am trying to: translate the index page (home page) to German but it does not turn out as a replica of the English page

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

I expected to see: it looking like the English page (layout) with the wording in German

Instead, I got: PAGE NOT FOUND - The page you were looking for can not be found! Perhaps try searching?

Hi there,

Kindly apologize for the delay,

I just found that the translated german page is in the trash which is causing the issue for you.

Please restore the german home page from trash and update the translation this would resolve your issue.

Let me know if you still need further assistance.

Kind regards
Raja

Hi Raja

Thanks for your reply.

The problem is that the index page that was in the trash (that the WPML plugin creates) does not show a duplicate of the English page with German text, but rather a plain page with white background and copy in it.

The German page looks like this hidden link

I expected it to look like the English home page hidden link with German translations for the sliders etc.

SEE ATTACHED FOR ACTUAL vs EXPECTED.

Can you clarify how we can achieve that please?

Thanks,
Brendon
