Thank you for contacting WPML Support. Can you please try the following:

1 - Check your setings at your WordPress Dashboard > Settings > How to translate posts and pages. Make sure the option 'Create translations manually' is set.

2 - In your WordPress Dashboard > Appearance > Themes click to swtich to a WordPress default theme temporary, the TwentySeventeen theme can be used here.

3 - In your WordPress Dashboard > Plugins disable all the plugins except the WPML's related ones and try to click to edit a post or page in a secondary language again.

4 - Change your translation editor preferences to the 'Use the Classic Translation Editor' again in your WordPress Dashboard > Settings > How to translate posts and pages

5 - Click to edit a post o page in a secondary language again and make sure the Translation Editor works properly.

6 - Activate the previous disabled plugin one by one, always testing the translation feature.

7 - If everything keeps working switch to your previous theme again from your WordPress Dashboard > Appearance > Themes again.

Please, let me know the result of these tests, so we can isolate the issue on a theme/plugin level as it seems to be caused by such conflicts. Have a nice day.
