Symptoms

In the Yoast SEO category sitemap, the URLs for the 2nd language are wrong. Their slugs are taken from the default language categories.

For example, if you have a category called Houses, which translates to Maisons in French, the sitemap will currently be generating URLs like this:

http://example.com/category/houses/ (English – default language)
http://example.com/fr/category/houses/ (French – second language)

However, the correct URLs should be:

http://example.com/category/houses/
http://example.com/fr/category/maisons/

Workaround

As a temporary workaround, go to WPML -> Languages -> Make themes work multilingual and deselect the Adjust IDs for multilingual functionality option.

  1. Hello,

    I did that but I still have the problem. It’s not quite the same …
    The snippet from my yoast seo premium plugin is right but just for my default language and not for the other 2 languages. It always takes my default language and not my subpage section … What do I have to do?
