Thank you for contacting WPML support. I'll be happy to help you with this.

You cannot remove categories from translated products. As an alternative, you can translate the category name to whatever you would like it to be by going to WPML -> WooCommerce multilingual, or just not translate this particular category.

Also, you could create a separate product that is not a translation and set the language as your secondary language. The only downside to this is that the stock quantities won't sync with the default language product, if that is something you are managing.

Please let me know if you need any further assistance and I will be happy to help.
