Hi,

I tried to make a subdomain for any language in my website.
I saw this guide: http://wpml.org/faq/server-setting-for-languages-in-different-domains/
but this guide explain how to do it on Apache server and I using Nginx server.

Please help me to configure it on my Nginx server.

Thank you !

I hope that this helps you.

I think that you have to configure DNS Wildcard domain - you can see example here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Configuring_Wildcard_Subdomains
and point it to your server address. Also maybe you should configure this inside the hosts file of your server. You can read also here: http://wpml.org/faq/server-setting-for-languages-in-different-domains/

OK. I added a wildcard to my domain and all the subdomains pointing to my domain.
But still can't save on WPML -> Languages the changes.

Do you saw my screenshots? everything set up good?

I have seen your screenshots, and I cannot find anything wrong with them.
Can you try to flush your servers dns cache? hidden link
It might help.
Try to access anydomain.yourdomain.tld and anydomain2.yourdomain.tld if you can - then it is probably correctly set-up.

It might help you because there might be some version differences that I was not aware of.

Thanks for the wait, can you access the subdomains you've created ? You can create and index file and write anything inside it and visit your subdomain and check if the file exists.
If you're not able to browse the created file, then you may need to contact your hosting provider.
