Open the Home page for editing and look for Language meta box in right sidebar.
Select Duplicate in front of your desired other language. and press Duplicate button. The page will refresh.
You can edit the duplicated page if you need to but we are not doing it here.
- Now you can go to the Home page on front end ( visit the site ) and choose the translated home page's language from language switcher in header top bar and you will see that page will refresh and URL will be changed to your newly translated homepage.
If you are not able to view language switcher then make sure to enable the setting in Dashboard → Appearance → Customize Settings → Floating Features panel and look for the WPML Language Switcher section (appears only when WPML plugin is activated) as displayed in the screenshots below.
