I am trying to:
- Translate taxonomies without having to change the slugs

Link to a page where the issue can be seen:
hidden link
I expected to see:
- The taxonomies translated from english to German without the slugs changed and shown in my search panel on the homepage
Instead, I got:
- I can't manually change the slugs and it always adds some suffix to the slug automatically.
I also disabled automatic translation of the slugs.

Thank you for the contacting WPML Support. For now it is not possible to keep the same term slug in different languages and our development team is aware about that and working on a solution, although I can't determine when it would done.

For now, you can edit the category slug directly in post type > categories menu, instead of using the 'WPML Term Translation' editor for this task. Please, let me know if this approach works for you, have a nice day.
