Hi Mohammed

We don't appear to have a current issue with this, I just tested it myself locally.

Can I confirm, you are using the standard WordPress categories widget added to your sidebar?

Your categories, are they translations of each other rather than separate categories?

On my local test site which has English as the original language and Spanish for translations, when viewing the back end in English if I go from the dashboard to Posts > Categories, I only see the English categories. When I edit one I can see that there is a translation of that category (see screenshot).

Is that the case on your site, that the categories are translations of each other?

The same works okay on my own site, so I'd like to take a look at your site to see what is different if that's okay?

I will mark your next reply as private so that I can get log-in credentials from you—you may want to create a temporary admin user for me to use that you can later delete. And be sure to have a current backup of your site, even though I don't intend to make any changes.
