We've been working with WPML for some time and after the last update the backend of our website has gone English. The site is Dutch by default but even when it is set to Dutch all the options are in English. We've written an entire manual based on the Dutch instructions for our clients so it's rather confusing for them to have it all in English.

Hi There,

is this happening only in the backend or also the front end as well ?

please go to WPML->Theme and Plugins localization and set it to " Translate themes and plugins using WPML's String Translation and always load .mo files as backup"

let me know your results please
