I am using Sitecore 9.3 and working on scaled environment. First I have created tags with two versions English and Spanish for every tag like below "Sketch Tag" enter image description here I needed to tag content Page with two languages Spanish and English with using Tag Cloud Component. When I visited this Page on CD in English version, I found "Sketch Tag" appears in both the languages English and Spanish, the same way when I visited page in Spanish version. What is the way to solve this problem ?

Thanks in advance.

This is a limitation of OOTB Tag cloud (sxa 93), also noticed this was not corrected in sxa10 as well.

Workaround : Clone the SXA TagCloud component and override TryQueryFacet from TagCloudRepository (Sitecore.XA.Feature.Taxonomy.Repository.TagCloudRepository) to make the query aware of the context Item language.

Example Code:

protected override bool TryQueryFacet(
      Item contextItem,
      string faceFieldName,
      out FacetResults query)
        string contextItemId = contextItem.ID.ToSearchID();
        using (IProviderSearchContext providerSearchContext = this.PrepareSearchContext(this.MultisiteContext.GetSiteItem(contextItem)))
            var expression = (Expression <Func<SearchResultItem, bool>>)PredicateBuilder.True<SearchResultItem>();
            expression = expression.And(i => i["_path"] == contextItemId);
                var fallbackLanguage = Sitecore.Data.Managers.LanguageFallbackManager.GetFallbackLanguage(Sitecore.Context.Language, Sitecore.Context.Database);
                expression = expression.And(i => i["_language"] == fallbackLanguage.Name);
                expression = expression.And(i => i["_language"] == Sitecore.Context.Language.Name);

            query = providerSearchContext.GetQueryable<SearchResultItem>().Where<SearchResultItem>(
                (Expression<Func<SearchResultItem, bool>>)expression).FacetOn<SearchResultItem, string>(
                (Expression<Func<SearchResultItem, string>>)(f => f[faceFieldName])
        return query != null;

Notice the expression in snippet above which includes the context Item language and also handles the fallback.
