Multi-language site page duplication (SEO)

Vote:
 

Currently I am developing a multi-language site that defaults to English language so it allows the request of http://www.xxx.com/ and also http://www.xxx.com/en/ .

It does its job, but the site has had a bug registered by an SEO expert saying that we now have page duplication because of this.

Is there a way to enforce the addition of the /en/ to the url?

Do you have any way around this?

Thanks in advance.

I had this exact same situation.  Blogged it here.
