Google Analytics - Two codes for one website based on language

I have the below code in my header:-

    if ($_SESSION['lang'] == 'us') { ?>
    <script>
      (function(i,s,o,g,r,a,m){i['GoogleAnalyticsObject']=r;i[r]=i[r]||function(){
      (i[r].q=i[r].q||[]).push(arguments)},i[r].l=1*new Date();a=s.createElement(o),
      m=s.getElementsByTagName(o)[0];a.async=1;a.src=g;m.parentNode.insertBefore(a,m)
      })(window,document,'script','//www.google-analytics.com/analytics.js','ga');
      ga('create', 'UA-XXXXXXXX-2', 'auto');
      ga('send', 'pageview');
    
    </script>
    <?php } else { ?>
    <script>
      (function(i,s,o,g,r,a,m){i['GoogleAnalyticsObject']=r;i[r]=i[r]||function(){
      (i[r].q=i[r].q||[]).push(arguments)},i[r].l=1*new Date();a=s.createElement(o),
      m=s.getElementsByTagName(o)[0];a.async=1;a.src=g;m.parentNode.insertBefore(a,m)
      })(window,document,'script','//www.google-analytics.com/analytics.js','ga');
    
      ga('create', 'UA-XXXXXXXX-1', 'auto');
      ga('send', 'pageview');
    
    </script>
    <?php } ?>


So depending on which language of the site you are using, a different UA code is used.

It's all working but on Google Analytics I get the following error message:-

Tracking Code Mismatch
Tracking code on page www.xxxxxxxxxx.com does not match property XXXX Website's tracking ID UA-xxxxxxxxx-1.

Any ideas how I can sort this?

Instead of creating you must do this with subdomain as per the Language. Such as

for English - www.eg.yourdomain.com
for Arabic - www.ae.yourdomain.com

At Google Analytics create one account for - www.yourdomain.com.
Under that create profile as per language. Each profile can get different code and tracking will happen differently and accurately.

Hope this will help you.

I've changed it to the following and it has seemed to fix the problem:-

//Analytics tracking for US
$language = $_SESSION['lang'];
if ($language == 'us') { 
    $UA_CODE = 'UA-XXXXXXXX-2'; //USA
} else {
    $UA_CODE = 'UA-XXXXXXXX-1'; //UK
}
?>
<script>
  (function(i,s,o,g,r,a,m){i['GoogleAnalyticsObject']=r;i[r]=i[r]||function(){
  (i[r].q=i[r].q||[]).push(arguments)},i[r].l=1*new Date();a=s.createElement(o),
  m=s.getElementsByTagName(o)[0];a.async=1;a.src=g;m.parentNode.insertBefore(a,m)
  })(window,document,'script','//www.google-analytics.com/analytics.js','ga');
  ga('create', <?php echo $UA_CODE; ?>, 'auto');
  ga('send', 'pageview');

</script>
