I have installed the wp_paginate plugin and the WPML plugin. Now I have set 'Dutch' to the basic language and added 'English' as the second language.

I set the Blog posts to display to: All posts (display translation if it exists or posts in default language otherwise).

One page shows posts which don't need to be translated. So I left them in 'Dutch'. Only now the wp_paginate doesn't show me the pages in the 'English' version of my site. In the 'Dutch' version they do so up.

Here is the code I used:

    $lstrPaged = (get_query_var('paged')) ? get_query_var('paged') : 1;

    query_posts('posts_per_page=5&paged=' . $lstrPaged);

        if(ICL_LANGUAGE_CODE == 'en')

first: query_posts() = doing_it_wrong(), you'd better use WP_Query or hook into pre_get_posts. See this thread for more info on when to use what.

Then if you have a look at one of the default themes, you will see that there is no need to translate pagination, as long as you code it in a GETTEXT string.

for example in twentyeleven:

wp_link_pages( array( 'before' => '<div class="page-link"><span>' . __( 'Pages:', 'twentyeleven' ) . '</span>', 'after' => '</div>' ) );

suppress_filters=1 did the trick!

This doesn't appear to be a complete answer. Could you edit it and provide some commentary so that it is more obvious what you've done. –  s_ha_dum Jan 22 '13 at 22:35
