After I finish the English content, I then click on the PENCIL icon, it uses to take me to the translation editor (the side by side page) but now it just opens the page in the other language.
I have recorded a video to explain:
Could you please tell me how to fix this asap? It was working perfectly fine before, and not sure what happened, then it stopped taking me to the translation editor

Hi and thank you for contacting WPML Support!
I will be happy to help you with this.
First of all, thank you for your patience and sorry for the delay - there's a good amount of tickets in our queue so it takes a bit longer to respond.
Now, regarding the issue that you are currently experiencing, from what I can see, there is something weird happening at the moment even if all the settings are ok from what I can see.
This feels to me that it might be a compatibility issue between WPML and one of the active plugins or the theme that you are using.
At the moment, it seems that you first need to click "Edit" on the "English" version (I am attaching a screenshot) and then you need to click the pencil edit icon from the right area inside the edit page - that way, it will open the translation in WPML Classic Translation Editor.
What you can try to do and see if anything changes is to follow the steps below:
1. Create a full website backup
2. Please go here (hidden link) and update everything to the latest version
3. Then please follow the steps below:
- disable all plugins except WPML and its add-ons
If the issue happens even with the non-WPML plugins disabled:
- leave all the non-WPML plugins deactivated
Please let me know how that goes and if following any of these steps solved your issue or brought any change.
I will be waiting for your response.
