Hi,

Thank you for contacting WPML support.

Regarding the Language URL :
Language URL structure is the base for everything built in WPML and you can choose the language URL from three formats only: https://wpml.org/documentation/getting-started-guide/language-setup/#language-url-format

So, what you are trying is simply not possible.

This is how WordPress work.
This is how WPML works. 🙂

Regarding changing the language name :
- Go to WPML >> Languages >> Site Languages.
- Click on link "Edit Languages"
- Adjust the names in the columns, example screenshot I have attached.
- And press "Save".

This should solve the issue.
Let me know if you need anything else regarding this.

Regards,
Riffaz.
