Hi! I'm having troubles with the management of my multilingual site hidden link.

The site is translated in 10 languages from the english main language.

We have SEO activities running on three languages (it, uk, us) and we are experiencing troubles with the positioning.

So we would like to use domains ( , and for these three languages and for the others the different directories for languages.

Is it possible to manage this with WPML, because in the settings it seems that you can only choose to managed one format only? Otherwise how can we do it?

Thank you in advance.

Thank you for contacting us. No. The WPML allows only one format to be selected. You cannot currently use both formats at the same time.

Unfortunately, there is no workaround for this easily either. It would be necessary to develop some custom solution on this. As this is a custom feature, unfortunately, this is beyond the scope of our support.

We have a list of WPML and WooCommerce Multilingual hooks that can help you develop such feature, which can be seen in the links below:
