Hi and thank you for contacting WPML Support!

I will be happy to help you with this.

From what I can see in the debug info, in your settings this is the selected option for how to translate posts: "Translatable - use translation if available or fallback to default language".

This is the reason why your untranslated (english) post is showing on another language, too, because the post falls back to the default language (english) because it doesn't find any translation available.

To change this, you will need to:

1. Go to your WordPress dashboard
2. Go to WPML > Settings
3. Scroll down until you find the "Post Types Translation" section
4. On the "Posts (post)" line, make sure you check the "Translatable - only show translated items" box
5. After this, scroll down a bit more and click the blue "Save" box

Now untranslated posts should not show up anymore in other languages.

Please let me know if this fixed your issue.
