Tell us what you are trying to do?

upgrade from Version 3.8.3 to the latest

on the wordpress plugin section there is no way to upgrade, so I assume I must do a manual upgrade, could you please help on what is the exact process ?

Thank you for contacting WPML Support. To do a manual update please follow these steps:

1. Backup your database – see for example:

2. Deactivate the existing WPML plugin and add-ons.

3. Delete the plugin files – this does not delete your translations. You will simply delete the plugin files from your "wp-content/plugins" folder, NOT the database records.

4. Download the updated plugins from our servers ( and upload them to the plugin directory.

5. Activate the WPML plugin and add-ons.

- Here is doc for more details:

Thank you
