I have custom taxonomys 'city' and 'property-type' for custom post type 'property'
'city' = hidden link
'property-type' = hidden link

So ive Added new rewrites to my custom taxonomy 'city' and mix it with 'property-type'

and now my url is
hidden link
in explanation is:
hidden link taxonomy slug)/(property-type taxonomy slug)/

But the links in Language Switcher is wrong

Link to a page where the issue can be seen:

I expected to see(in Language Switcher): hidden link

Instead, I got: hidden link

I believe i need to change some how the url in Language Switcher in the top of thw website.

**So as i can understand the link came to the language switcher because the last query was for this taxonomy (property-type in my case), so how i can prevent this or override to get my own links instead of latest taxonomy links?

Or even better, just let me know where is code in your plugin responsible for this behavior and i will see and understand how i can make this works for me.

Thank you.

    Languages: English (English ) Spanish (Español )

    WPML exposes a filter called 'icl_ls_languages'. You can use it to customize the url in the language switcher.

    function wpml_url_fix( $languages ) {
      // make your changes to the $languages array here.
      return $languages;
    add_filter( 'icl_ls_languages', 'wpml_url_fix');

    The array you will receive looks like this:

    [en] => Array
    [id] => 1
    [active] => 1
    [native_name] => English
    [missing] => 0
    [translated_name] => English
    [language_code] => en
    [country_flag_url] => hidden link
    [url] => hidden link

    [fr] => Array
    [id] => 4
    [active] => 0
    [native_name] => Français
    [missing] => 0
    [translated_name] => French
    [language_code] => fr
    [country_flag_url] => hidden link
    [url] => hidden link

    [it] => Array
    [id] => 27
    [active] => 0
    [native_name] => Italiano
    [missing] => 0
    [translated_name] => Italian
    [language_code] => it
    [country_flag_url] => hidden link
    [url] => hidden link
