Hey Simon,

Can you give me some more details about the change you're trying to do, please? I just checked your website and I could see that you're at step two for setting up the plugin (hidden link). Can you tell me what's the translation languages that you'd like to use on your website? I just need a few more info about what you want to do so I can point you to the right steps.

Thanks,
Radu

Dear Noman

So basically we like to have 2 x times English, one English for uk users, the other English for international users.

So that we have in the hreflang one time en and the other time en-GB.

What is the best way to do this?

Regards,

Simon

It seems to working, but what I have now is this, see attachment.

So, the set up I like to have is follow:

Default Language: en_GB
Second Language: en

All content, include products are in English, so basically I only like to have a duplicate of the content.

Before we change to a second domain, it use to be co.uk/en/ for the English language.

What is the best approach to do this?
