Hi Daniel,

basically - one parameter can be translated only into one pagepath.

There are some other options

1) You can play with SQL - select more elements and use CONCAT on them 
to return stuff/like/this

2) You can replace default page path function with your own

3) You can write userfunc for given element:


That paramconstraint element is not much of a use. It mean to check 
whether a parameter should be translated.
