    Hi JohnAimit,

    My site in 5 languages under 1 domain. I am not able to generate XMl sitemaps by language site.
    1. Do I need to generate separate XMl sitemap for each site or a combined one ?
    2. How Google will indentify my site has 5 languages ?

    Irrespective of language, every page on your site has a different URL, right?

    Google indexes individual web page files. So, if someone search in one of the languages used on your site and if your page in that language contains the answer, G will preferentially list that one in the results.

    XML maps are not essential for small websites that have good link pathways that Googlebot can follow from Home to your different language pages.
