The site i want to scrape has it in multiple languages all denoted with the query '?=hl'. Can i get the crawler to ignore these?

By ignoring it you mean you want to skip enqueuing such URLs if they were already processed? Are you sure the URLs are otherwise the same? If so, you could trim the query parameter manually and provide uniqueKey explicitly when adding new requests to the queue (which you would need to do manually, inside your page function, while disabling the automatic enqueueing, e.g. by setting the selector option to some gibberish).

Alternatively, you could skip the pages inside the request handler.
