Joomla!®, as any other dynamic content generator, may face the problem of generate different URLs pointing to the very same resource. This may occur by several causes, but the fact is that duplicated content issue appears, sooner or latter, in every Joomla site, with the negative effect in the whole site's SEO.

While implementing this website, we found out that JDownloads is a great Joomla Extension to handle downloads, however it had a major problem with multi-language websites just like ours.

JDownloads requires that menu links from all the languages handled in the website have the same alias, so the SEF URL would be affected by this requirement, because the url would not contain the keyword in the right language.
