Hi,

Thank you for contacting WPML support.

we set the current website language the (RTL) and second language english ?
- yes.

Then change the plugin language using this workaround:

-Go to WPML > String translation
-Search for the string and select it
-At the bottom of the table, you will see a button to change the language of the string
-Change the language to one that you won't use on your site
-"Translate" the string to the original/RTL language

Let me know if this helps, please.

Kind regards,
Riffaz.
