I am trying to: when click enter on a search it goes to main language not the translated language even though the page does exist.

Link to a page where the issue can be seen: hidden link

I expected to see:

Instead, I got:

Languages: English (English ) Portuguese (Brazil) (Português )

Timezone: America/Sao_Paulo (GMT-03:00)

Thank you for contacting us. This seems to happen because the form is receiving the default language URL in the language code.

One way you'll fix this will be to use directories as URL format, rather than using the language as a parameter. To test this, please follow the steps below:

- Click on the WPML > Languages > Language URL format
- Select the "Different languages in directories" option
- Click on the Save button
- Clear your site's cache

Test and verify that the search is working correctly in both languages.

Thank you.
