Hi,

Thank you for contacting WPML support.

Yes, it is possible.

1. go to WPML > Languages > Site Languages > Edit Languages
2. and what you change here will be displayed on the language on the switcher: hidden link
3. so change those word to three letters as you want.

Hopefully, this will work as you want.

Regards,
Riffaz.
