Hi!
I have a site to which we install WPML and the Yoast SEO Multiligual plugin.
The problem is that it is not possible to create subdomains, and I need to have a sitemap per language, since with it Yoast SEO does by default, it shows me the results incorrectly in the search.
I found this post: https://wpml.org/es/forums/topic/multisite-y-google-webmaster-tool/#post-112898
But it only shows me the original language sitemap, not the translations.
Is there a way to solve this?
Thank you!!

Hola!
Tengo un sitio al cual le instalamos WPML y el plugin Multiligual de Yoast SEO.
El problema es que no es posible crear subdominios, y necesito tener un sitemap por idioma, ya que con el hace Yoast SEO por defecto, me muestra incorrectamente los resultados en la búsqueda.
Encontré este posteo: https://wpml.org/es/forums/topic/multisite-y-google-webmaster-tool/#post-112898
Pero solo me muestra el sitemap del idioma original, no así las traducciones.
¿Hay alguna manera de solventar esto?
Gracias!!

Hello!
Thanks for the reply.
I already verified that answer but unfortunately it does not work for me. I cannot generate subdomains and I need to have sitemaps separated by language.
It's possible?

Hello,

Thank you for contacting our support service. As explained at: https://wpml.org/errata/yoast-seo-sitemaps-only-work-with-different-domains/ the sitemap per language only works if you have a different domain per language setup. So, if you have any other setup, unfortunately it is not possible. You can find more details regarding it at: https://wpml.org/documentation/related-projects/using-wordpress-seo-with-wpml/#translate-sitemaps

Please, let me know if you need any other details and clarifications, have a nice day.
