Hi, I would like to ask your advice: in one of my sites, all content has been translated to German and Spanish, without using Yoast SEO Multilingual.

This translated content is performing well in Google.

Is it wise to install Yoast SEO Multilingual now to help us translate meta descriptions of new content we add? Or could that hurt SEO of the already translated posts and pages?

I hope you understand my issue and explanation, if not, please let me know.

Thanks in advance,

Thank you for contacting WPML Support. If your website is already performing well, then Yoast SEO Multilingual addon won't interfer to make your SEO efforts to perform badly as it won't change any content or settings as the only contribution it will offer is to make it easier to translate your SEO content using WPML. Hope it brings some clarification to your question, have a nice day.
