Tell us what you are trying to do?
Create a list of URLs to a website recently translated and ready for review. The customer's 'translated document options' settings are set to "Document status - Same as original", and "Page URL - Auto generate from title."

Most English pages were set to "Published" when the translation was requested, so the translations we push back will go live. Correct?

For auto-generated titles, only part of the URL is translated. In the screenshot below, 'customer-care' was not parsed in cdata in the xliff to be translated. Further, the title includes an ampersand, whereas the URL uses a hyphen.

Do we need to manually enter hyphens to "Reparación y modernización" to make it work? Please kindly advise.

Thanks very much.

Hello,

Thank you for contacting WPML Support and sorry for the bit of waiting here. Regarding your questions:

1 - "Most English pages were set to 'Published' when the translation was requested, so the translations we push back will go live. Correct?"

Yes, it is the expected behavior when you have the option 'Same as the original document' set from your WordPress Dashboard > WPML > Settings > Translated document options settings.

2 - "Do we need to manually enter hyphens to "Reparación y modernización" to make it work?"

Can you please clarify it better? Where do you need to edit it? From the provided screenshot I see the english url only.

After publishing the translated document does it keeps the english url or the spanish one generated from the page title? Besides that, the way WordPress handles ampersand in page/post titles might be related to the fact it is omitted from the page/post slug, something most likely caused by a WordPress limitation on itself instead of something related to the translation parsed.

Please, let me know it if helps, have a nice day.
