Tell us what you are trying to do?

I would like a language switcher in the menu like this: DE | EN .

Is there a similar example that we can see?

What is the link to your site?

Thank you for contacting WPML Support. Although I didn't see any language switcher in order to provide you with a detailed answer I would recommend the following:

1 - In your WordPress Dashboard > WPML > Languages click to edit your current language switcher and change to a list of languages instead of a dropdown menu of languages. You can also choose to hide the language flag, language name, etc and show just the language code. See:

2 - The separator '|' between languages can be achieved with a bit of custom css code, using the CSS 'content: '|' property (see hidden link).

Please, let me know if it helps. Have a nice day.
