2. I add a shortcode in the top header for horizontal language converter but it shows vertically, could you please see it and fix it to me.
---> I have tried to change this but with no success. The correct way is to add the Language switcher from widgets and make settings from WPML hidden link Please contact WPML support.

3. In the blog page and single blog pages, the categories are shown repeated even I add them one time.
Could you please see this errors and help me to solve them.

Thank you for contacting WPML Support. You can fix language switcher direction issue by adding the following CSS in your theme’s or child theme style.css file OR Custom CSS section of the theme:

.wpml-ls-legacy-list-horizontal ul li {
    width: auto;
    margin: 0 5px !important;
    position: relative;
    top: -15px;
    border: none;

And it will look as in the attached screenshot.

Fore repeated category issue, I have created a new ticket since this is a separate issue. Here is the link to the new ticket:

Thank you for your cooperation and patience.
