How to exclude from translation all pages except specific one(s)?

In this article, you'll find how to exclude every page from translation except specific ones.

Go to your Weglot Dashboard > Settings > Translation exclusions
There, you'll normally be able to add the pages you would like to exclude:

Then you can click on "Add Rule" and select "Match regex":

There's a way to say "exclude everything except..". This is possible with regular expressions (RegEx).

Little reminder: the Exclude URL section is working with relative URLs. For example, if your page is www.mywebsite.com/mypage/, then /mypage/ is the relative URL. 

Tips for the Exclude URL section with regular expressions (RegEx)

  • Exclude everything except a specific page using its relative URL: ^(?!/mypage/$).*

  • Exclude everything except the landing page: ^(?!\/$).*

  • Exclude everything except a few specific pages: ^(?!/$|/shop/$|/categorie-produit/$|/produit/$).*

  • Exclude everything except everything that begins with /product/... ^(?!/product/).* (Meaning, without the "$")


If you're using WordPress, you can follow the same method and add the rules directly into your WordPress Dashboard > Weglot plugin > Exclude URL section.

If you're using Shopify, you can follow the same method and add the rules directly into your Shopify dashboard > Apps > Weglot Translate > Other options section > Exclude paths.
