This thread is resolved. Here is a description of the problem and solution.
Problem: Canonical links wrong upon duplication of translations Solution: According to SEO rules (I am reading this - https://yoast.com/rel-canonical/), it would be wrong if we have multiple canonical links in case these are in fact translations.
In other words, we should stick to the rule - original has its own canonical and each next instance (whether it is duplicate or translation) which descendent from that instance should have any of the following:
- the first instance - for example translation - should have the new canonical link - every next instance - for example translation or duplicate of the translation - should have the original canonical link, because that original is in fact the parent
In any case, this is not related to Yoast, but to how WPML handles these cases. Relevant Documentation: https://yoast.com/rel-canonical/
