We can enable the second option if we want the old URL links to be reformatted to the new friendly one, the third option to add the language to the URL link e.g. domain.com/en/product-1 

 

Create a custom URL schema:

You can create a custom URL schema for each language if you enabled the third option and a global one if you didn't, you just need to delete the one you want to replace first (Please don't delete any schema that you won't add a replacement for it):

We will have the option to set a language for the rule or set it for all languages through the second option after selecting the group from the first option:

After setting the Prefix, we can adjust the URL link by choosing the variables in the URL schema row and the full URL link will be shown below the URL schema, once we're done we will click on the "Save" button (If you clicked twice on the save button and the rule will have a duplicate)

 

Use cases:

 -Deleting one of a global schema and adding two in each language instead (Add language into URL activated)

1- We will make sure that the one we will delete only has a global schema and if it has one in any of the languages, we will delete it too as follows:

3- After choosing the group and the language we will click on the "Save" button only once:

4- After we clicked on the "Save" button we will stay on the same page, then we will change the language from the second option, and the URL language you can set it as you like:
