Welcome to Joomla forum!

I would backup the current .xml and do the following to find the fault:

Remove the half of the file and test if it works ok. If not, I would remove again the half (so you've only 1/4 of the file) and test again.
If it works ok, then the fault is in the 2nd part. Copy half of the 2nd part in the .xml and test again.

After a while you'll know which line(s) contains a fault.
Correct that line or, post it here so someone else can take a look.

Peter, thanks a lot for your respond.
Must confess I am web-dummie. It is my first web-page and my first experience out of nowhere. I've tryed to open the backup version just yesterday but got an error PHP Warning: XMLReader::open(): Unable to open source data; File: /usr/local/psa/admin/plib/backup/Conflicts/Detector/SpecificationReader.php, Line: 211
I contacted my hosting Plesk Panel administrator but no reply so far. So frustrating!
My web-page http://sebrmet.lv/en/prices
Menu CONTACTS for every language does not work. It contains only text information and Google MAP. I guess what I need to do is wait till Plesk Panel administrator helps me. :-\

For those who have the same problem

The problem with Contacts was found accidentally. I deleted {mosmap} (Google Maps) and it worked. Certainly without the maps but still it works. So I have to figure out how to attach Google maps now.

I too had this issue, and found this in a thread, hope it helps someone :)

Google in their infinite wisdom have changed their google maps API... if you are using the googlemaps plugin (mosmap) v 2.18. This does not work with the new API. You need to upgrade to v3.1 of this plugin.

FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS HERE VERY CAREFULLY http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions ... /maps/1147.
