Hello,

Thank you for contacting WPML Support.

By default, the post slug is generated automatically based on the title.
If you want to change this setting, you can navigate to WPML > Settings > Translated documents options > Page URL and select Translate & click on save(See attached screenshot)

Thanks,
Rohan

Hello,

If you want to change the slug of a translated page, go to Pages > Click on the Edit button below the page & switch the language on top of the admin menu. Then just click on the title of the page & you will be able to view & edit the permalink of the page.

You can read more about this here:

Thanks,
Rohan

Hi thank you
I do change slug for all category and sub-category and it is working fine.
Shall I do it for all products or is there another way to make slug read from English language

I was thinking there another way to translate all slug for all products.
But what about all products I have over 100 items that takes long time to change slug for each item.
Since all products uploaded in2 sheets (arabic + English) by wpml all import. I have question for new import sheets how to make slugs for both language is main default language .

Thanks

Hello,

You need to translate the product slugs manually.
For now, we don't have an option to translate all the slugs at once.
You can make a request for this feature here: https://wpml.org/suggest-a-new-feature-for-wpml/

Regarding the import sheets, I hope there is a field to enter the slug name in the CSV file.

Thanks,
Rohan
