Plugins by Use Case
Depending on the concept and scope of the project, we recommend using some of the following plugins:
- Advanced Custom Fields Multilingual

Only needed to disable a subset of author pages (disable all via Yoast SEO otherwise).

For when author archive pages are needed, the author page slug should not be the username.
