I am trying to: set up categories in German, but they return 404 and automatically add the other language, english /en/... german translation slug. I don't know how to fix it. I also cannot find a redirect that could possibly cause this.

Link to a page where the issue can be seen: hidden link however this should be hidden link
but it's not possible to change it.. and if I put it in browser it automatically redirects

I expected to see: I just need my 3 Kategories set up in German that are English

Thank you for contacting WPML support.

1.- I would like to ask you to follow this steps in order to isolate the cause of the issue:
- Back up your site first before making any change, this is for security reasons.
- Deactivate all the plugins that are not related to WPML.
- Switch for a moment to a WordPress default theme like Twenty Seventeen.
- If the issue is gone, activate one by one to see with which one there is an interaction issue.

Could you tell me the result of this steps?

2.- Please increase the PHP Memory Limit. Minimum requirements are 128Mb:

You can add this to wp-config.php to increase WP memory:

/** Memory Limit */
define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '128M');
define( 'WP_MAX_MEMORY_LIMIT', '128M' );

- Add it above the line /* That's all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */

Kind regards,
