Hi and thank you for contacting WPML Support!

I will be happy to help you with this.

What you would need to do in order to accomplish that is to go to WPML > Languages and check the "Use directory for default language" box.

Now all the links that are using the IT language will contain "/it" in the link.

There is also some helpful documentation about this topic in the link below in case you want to take a look:

Please let me know if this solved your issue or if you still need help.

I will be waiting for your response.

Kind regards,

Mihai Apetrei
