On the homepage of my website, the language switcher is not displaying the translated version of this page. On all other pages, the language switcher works fine, but on the homepage, the Dutch translation in the language switcher redirects to the English version.

No, that didn't solve the issue unfortunately.

Thank you for your updates.

Could you please do the following test?

-Take a complete backup of your site. (important!)
-Deactivate all non-WPML plugins, except the plugins required for your theme.
-Check if the issue persists.
-If the issue is solved. If yes, begin to activate one by one the plugins until you figured out what plugin was causing the issue.
-If the issue still persists, deactivate all non-WPML plugins and please try to switch the theme to one of WordPress default themes (e.g. twentysixteen)

Please let me know how it goes.

Kind regards,

Unfortunately, that didn't work as well.

I would like to request temporary access (/wp-admin and FTP) to your site to take a better look at the issue. You will find the needed fields for this below the comment area when you log in to leave your next reply. Your next reply will be set to private.

Maybe I'll need to replicate your site locally to continue debugging and escalate if necessary. For this I’ll need to temporarily install a plugin called “Duplicator” on your site. This will allow me to create a copy of your site and your content. Once the problem is resolved I will delete the local site. Please confirm if this okay with you.

Our Debugging Procedures
I will be checking various settings in the backend to see if the issue can be resolved. Although I won't be making changes that affect the live site, it is still good practice to BACKUP the site before providing us access.
