I am trying to:
I have a multilingual website with redirection for each language to a specific language version. As we use German DE as main language and DE_CH as second language - user should be redirect to the Swiss language version. But this unfortunately does not work. User in CH always start with the German version.

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

I expected to see:
With a Swiss browser: hidden link

Instead, I got:
hidden link

Do you have an idea how to fix this? Thank you very much!

Hi There,

please verify that you have activated the browser language redirection within WPML->Languages

i have created a custom language for swiss with de-CH as its default locale and it worked well with my browser set to German Swiss

hidden link

the above URL redirects to
hidden link

as expected

NOTE : i have attached the configuration used for the custom language bellow
