WordPress - Troubleshooting - I see a page not found (404 error) when changing language

In this article, you'll learn how to solve a 404 error when trying to translate your website.

Should you encounter an Error 404 - Page not found when switching languages, this is most likely linked to your permalink settings.

To remedy this, please follow the instructions below:

1. Go to your WordPress administration > Settings > Permalinks.

2. Make sure you don't select the plain option and you don't have /index.php in your urls.

3. Save changes.

4. Refresh your page and it should work.

If the error persists, please check whether the mod_rewrite module is enabled on your website. You request your host provider to enable it. If you're managing your own server, you can then follow the steps as described in this Stack Overflow documentation: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/869092/how-to-enable-mod-rewrite-for-apache-2-2.
