Tell us what you are trying to do?
I'm working on a site where we have a page with the slug in English as "/volunteer" and we'd like the Spanish version to be "/voluntario" but it redirects to /volunteer unless the URL ends in "/voluntario/?lang=es"

Is there a way to have this slug go to the right language without having the parameter at the end?

Unfortunately this is not possible as WPML and WordPress require the parameter (?lang=es) or directory if you have set to directories (/es/voluntario/) to redirect the page to the correct language.

removing the parameter will result in the URL to be redirected as you have been experiencing.

the other option as mentioned above would be to switch the format to using "directories" from within WPML->languages

this would just add a language code in your URL instead.

ex. hidden link
