I am trying to: do a basic search

I visited this URL: hidden link

I expected to see: Searches in Japanese when Japanese is selected found, not my searches sent to the english page.

Instead, I got: No result found in English

I ran up this site ONLY to prove this issue
Disabling WPML finds any search term I try...
I added french and get the same result...

please fix it

This has been a BUG for about 3 years - and wasted 3 hours of my time tonight, and from the look of the forum thousands of hours for many people since 2009.

Thanks for contacting us, I'll help in this.

As a quick test, can you please try this.

Go to your WP Dashboard -> WPML -> Languages -> Language URL format and enable "Different languages in directories" and check the search function if it is working on your website as it supposed or not.
