I am getting stuck with an issue, I have a Multilanguage site that is based on SXA. Rather than going to change via language drop-down, I am going to change language via URL.

Please see the steps below what I made for reproducing this issue:

  1. first of all I have two language site which is en-ca and fr-Ca. en-ca is the default one.
  2. I have a product page that exists in both languages.
  3. When I try to hit the URL like: https://domainname/en-ca/product for en-ca result will be correct. Now rather than changing the item language from the language selector dropdown, I tried to change the URL from the above to like: https://domainname/fr-ca/product. After hitting the same page will load and get data from fr-ca language.
  4. But it goes to the 404 page because no one product name like this exists in a tree for fr-ca because I have changed the name of the product in fr-ca is products.

So my concern is that rather than resolving an item via its item name, I want to resolve it via display name.

Anyone, please suggest to me the better way how I can handle this?
