Hi, I am trying to translate my menus from English to several other languages. I have several pages in my original English menu, but when I switch to the other language menus, there are no pages available to be added. I can't add pages to my newly created menus because there are no items in the "Pages" scroll down menu on the left to add from.
The sync didn't work. I read the documentation and followed all the steps three times already. I’m struggling with this two whole days now. I have the last version WPML 3.3.7.

Also the Flags aren’t shown on the homepage. Only the English Flag. No scroll down menu with the other Flags.
So I also followed these steps:
support -> troubleshooting ->Clean up
- Remove ghost entries from the translation tables
- Fix element type collation
- Set language information
- Fix terms count
- Fix post type assignment for translations
Didn’t work.

After this I tried twice the Reset and a newly install. No results!
Please help because I’m not happy with this.

Thank you for contacting WPML support forum.

After performing a menu Sync (please refer to this link:, can you please check if the posts/pages that are missing in other languages are translated into all languages. If you don't need it translated in all languages you can simply duplicate it in other languages.

You can do that by editing the post and on the side, you'll find Language options, check Duplicate for all languages, then click Duplicate. [See screenshot]
