Tell us what you are trying to do?
Translate the page and now WPML translates the link in the buttons and it will not work because these are shortened links with plugin pretty links.
Is there any documentation that you are following?
How can I stop WPML from translating these direct links for outgoing sites?
Is there a similar example that we can see?

What is the link to your site?

Thank you for contacting WPML Support.

I didn't find any information about the Pretty Links plugin, as it was not tested yet. Could you please try to reproduce the issue on this isolates Sandbox environment?

Please let me know, if yes I can escalate it to our compatibility team which will try to find a workarond for it or contact the plugin author if needed.

I could not finish the setup because I can not use automatic translation.

I think it is not an issue but normal. I tested it with other translations and in some languages, the outgoing pretty link is translated but this do not have to happen. So I need to change the links in other words that are not translated by the plugin. It should work.
