We are a website with dutch main language (NL).

However, under "string translation" we see lots of string items in dutch (NL), but they are fixed with the English flag. (see attachment
How can we change those dutch items, so they have the "dutch" flag ?
Where did this wrong flag happen in the process and what can we do to prevent this or fix this in bulk ?

Thank you for contacting WPML support. You can change the language of a certain text domain, please go to WPML >> String Translation and click the "Languages of Domains" link ( screenshot attached). Here, you can select the domain and change the English language to other language.

If you want to change some specific string default language to other language then you can do it by selecting required string checkboxes and select new language from ‘Change the language of selected strings’ dropdown as you can see in the attached screenshot.

Here is doc for more details:

Please let me know if this resolves your issue or you need further assistance with this issue.

Thank you
