Thank you for contacting WPML support. Were you able to fix the problem?
I visited your first link and when I click the English item on the language switcher it correctly redirected to the English translation of the page, not the homepage.

Hi Ricardo,

thanks for your replay. But it doesn't work when I test it.
I will explain my problem again:

Im on the german site
hidden link
If I switch the language
I want to land on the same site in english:
hidden link
but instead it opens the home in english.

I have also a problem with sites with the same name:
e.g.: software.
hidden link

hidden link

When I set the link in the Button (see screen) it opens always the german site inters of the english

Do have to set all the links new? Is there a better way to do that?
e.g. button below:
hidden link

Thanks for the explanation. I could not replicate the issue on the links you posted but it happens on the homepage on your site.
In your WordPress admin go to Qode Options -> General -> Settings -> Page Transition and select any other option that is not "Fade".

Let me know if that helps.
