we currently have a permalink structure of /%blog%/%postname%/ which on front-end looks like :

hidden link

we want the slug of the english version of that same blog post to be :

hidden link

We are basically looking for a way to translate the /blog/ slug with /blogue/

How can we do that ?

Thank you for contacting us. That depends on how that slug is added. Are you using any pages as a basis for this? Or is this setting just being made on permalinks?

If this is being done only within the permalinks, I don't see that it's possible. If you are using some page as a base, you can try translating this slug in Pages > All Pages.

Please, what is the version of WPML and WP are you using? I would like to know more about your installation. Can you please provide your WPML Debug information in the debug field below?

Thank you.

We are not using a standard page for the blog archive. The slug is added in the permalink settings.

So we can't translate it unless we create a regular page for the blog (and translate the page just the regular way) is that what you are saying?

That is correct, you will need to assign it to a page and then you will be able to translate the slug.
