I am trying to export the main language categories in order to match them to the translated ones and put everything in a CSV files so I can import them.

I used 'Wp All Export' to export the main language's categories. I expected to see a kind of primary key to be linked to the translated ones, instead I got just a list of all categories (main and translated ones) with no reference useful to match them.

How I can link a translated category to the category in the main language?

The link between worpdress objects (taxonomies, posts, pages, attachments...) is made in the following table: icl_translations

The common key that connects the different langauge versions is the field "trid".

The icl_translations table will also tell you the assigned langauge for each worpdress object.
Some related documentation for you:
