Currently WPML adds /fr/ to permalinks to identify a url as French. The default language of the site is English, however WPML does not add /en/ by default for the default lannguage (English) permalinks. Is there a way to have the default language also show up in the permalinks?

WPML is the defacto plugin enabling Multi-lingual WordPress sites, although others exist such as qTranslate. www.wpml.org –  Bundarr Jan 27 '11 at 13:18

EDIT: This feature has been added to the latest version of the plugin.

This is not possible, and will not be implemented in the near future.

Could you explain your answer? Meaning did you ask the developers of WPML and that's what they told you...? –  tnorthcutt Feb 3 '11 at 13:50
Yes I did ask the developers and they responded that this is not possible and will not be implemented in the future. –  Bundarr Feb 3 '11 at 15:54
