I am trying to: Edit the Startpage in foreign Language. It's already translated (before we enabled the Translation Manager Left-Right Thing), but the TM shows, that nothing is translated

Link to a page where the issue can be seen:

No Link, its a different kind of problem

I expected to see:

the translated content in the TM and around 100%

Instead, I got: 6% and nothing translated

Hello @karinw-3, welcome to the WPML support Forum!

Please try the following:
- Go to the edit screen of the page (default language)
- Change the language using the language switcher at the top admin bar
- If it displays a warning, click on "Edit Anyway"
- Edit the page and save

You can also delete the old translation to start from scratch. please note that you will loose all existing translations:
- Go to Pages > All Pages
- Change the language using the language switcher at the top admin bar
- Delete the page (translation)
- Delete from the trash as well
- Go back to Pages > All Pages and switch back to the default language
- Create the new translation from scratch

IMPORTANT: Please backup your site first before making any change, this is important for security reasons.

Please let me know if it worked for you.

All the best,
