I am trying to: translate my posts and pages but when I publish the translation, I can see from my "all languages" viewer that a new post/page is created which breaks the links in the translation switcher. Thus, if I make a translation of a Danish post into English, then after issuing the translation when I click the language switcher, it switches to the same post language but it changes everything else like the menu; switches to danish post text but English menu.

Link to a page where the issue can be seen: hidden link

I expected to see: When I click the language switcher that the post is also translated.

Instead, I got: everything else than the post being translated
