I am trying to:
make wpml work smoothly after migrating from polylang. Stuck on redirect fail notice in wp dashboard even after placing it in different locations in .htaccess file. What am I doing wrong?
Link to a page where the issue can be seen:

I expected to see: no issues

Instead, I got:

Polylang used to redirect traffic from hidden link to hidden link but WPML isn't doing this. If you have incoming links to hidden link, you should redirect this traffic to your site's root. To do this, add the following line to your .htaccess file:
RedirectMatch 301 //$ hidden link

1. Clarification
I am a bit confused by the following:

You wrote: "..Polylang used to redirect traffic from hidden link to hidden link.."

These URLs look the same to me. Am I overlooking something obvious?

2. WPML and Redirection
WPML does not do any kind of redirection apart from the Browser Language Redirect described here:

We do rewrite the permalinks - but no "redirects" are executed.

Wiating for your clarifications
