Hello there,

Please, apologize for the delay in answering. We are a bit loaded lately, but working hard to go back to normal.

While one of my teammates take this issue, let me add some hints to move it forward.

Please go to:
WPML > Translation Management >and use the "All translation status" drop-down to select "Not translated or need updating"

Let us know if this helps, please.

Kind regards,

Maybe I was not very clear, but the problem is that I have a custom template on front. I need a function or basic query example how get all not translated posts. If posts are already translated than they should not be selected from DB

I see, thank You.
Well it's didn't helped me , because what I'm trying to do is just to get list of all not translated posts for my personal use. I don't need it global for all site etc.
Or if it will be more clear question for You, I would like to var_dump all not translated ID's of posts
