WooCommerce Multilingual 3.2 gives you much greater flexibility with product pricing in different languages, supports WooCommerce 2.1, improves compatibility, performance and stability.

Compatibility with WooCommerce 2.1

WooCommerce 2.1 is almost here. It includes nice improvements and changes to API functions and admin screens. This version of WooCommerce Multilingual works great on both the 2.0.x and 2.1.x versions. No thrills, just solid functionality.

So, if you’re planning to upgrade to WooCommerce 2.1, here is one less thing to be worried about 🙂

Choose which currencies to display for each language

Many e-commerce sites need to limit the currencies, according to the display language. WooCommerce Multilingual 3.2 lets you choose which currencies to display for each language.

Configure currencies
Configure currencies

This way, you can choose which currencies your visitors will see available when they switch languages.

Set individual pricing per currency

More on currencies! If you are using multiple currencies, you can now manually set the prices, per product per currency.

Setting custom prices
Setting custom prices

You can set the regular prices, sales price and even variations prices for each language. We’ve paid special attention to performance, ensuring that this powerful new feature doesn’t slow down either your WordPress admin or the front-end products display.

To read everything about pricing per currency, including how to add a currency switcher to your theme, have a look at the multi-currency documentation page.

Translation for attribute base

‘Attribute base’ is the root URL of your products. Now, you can translate it and optimize your site’s URLs in different languages.

If you’re obsessive about SEO (like we are), you’ll enjoy this new feature.

More translation languages

WooCommerce Multilingual is now officially fully localized to the following 18 languages:

Spanish, Chinese (Simplified), Chinese (Traditional), Japanese, German, French, Portuguese, Italian, Dutch, Hebrew, Arabic, Russian, Greek, Swedish, Korean, Polish, Portuguese and Vietnamese.

The newest language, which we’ve added in this release is Vietnamese. More Asian languages coming soon.

We localize all our plugins using ICanLocalize’s Software Localization system. It’s a self service system, which lets you upload .po files, choose languages and get your product translated by expert translators. If you’re thinking about how to expand your market to other countries, you should definitely consider this option.

Bug fixes

No new version is ever complete without some bugs crushed. Isn’t it great to see that the number of bugs and their severity keeps going down 🙂

Here are the major bugs fixed in WooCommerce Multilingual 3.2:

  • Emails not sent in the correct language when uses bulk action on orders list page
  • Order notes email in wrong language in certain circumstances
  • Shipping method names are being registered in the wrong language
  • WooCommerce Multilingual menu doesn’t display for translators
  • Using ‘category’ for products cat slug conflicts with posts ‘category’
  • Paypal rejects payments with decimals on certain currencies

  1. Hi,

    Is it possible to run WooCommerce Multilangual 3.2’s feature “Multiple Currencies” without multiple languages?

    When I’m trying to add a new product I always come to the Multilingual translation site, even when I don’t have any other language….

    • WCML wasn’t intended for this. I think that it will refuse to operate when WPML isn’t yet set up with multiple languages.

  2. Hi,

    need help with woo commerce 3.2 multiple currencies.

    After update I set up currencies for countries.
    CZK – czech language
    EUR – slovak language
    EUR – english language

    but when I switching languages, there is only CZK currency.
    Any idea?

    Thanks for answering.

  3. I am going to try this out! I was waiting for this multi-currency functionality for few months and even self-programmed some workarounds…
    Does it work fine with Woocommerce 2.0.20 or is it better to wait for 2.1? I am just tired of fixing bugs and just want to have guaranteed working solution.
    Thanks!

    • Well… I’ve installed it, but it halts on adding products to cart on the second language. So I am going back to my previous installation. Nice try though. I will wait for more stable version.

      • Hi Nikita,

        This has been tested on both Woocommerce 2.0.20 and 2.1.
        The support for 2.0.20 is missing some things for displaying the admin side: displaying the correct currency symbol for the orders or the sales reports broken down by currency.

        We’re happy to help with problems you have with this new version of WooCommerce Multilingual. You can start a thread on the support forum and we’ll start looking into it.

  4. Hi there

    is it possible with this feature to have lets say a store in english an french (/en and /fr) and when a user first visits a site, he will be redirected to his language and therefor currency. Is it possible to change the language then but keeping currency? we want to avoid that a user from english speaking countries buys in the french shop because in france we have a cheaper pricing… does this work? Or has anyone some further ideas/help for me?

    Thx in advance.

  5. Great info but I’m still too scared to start building my new WP WooCommerceML website all by myself… Anyone knows wher I can find someone to help me? No one in my neighborhood..

    • Right now, the multi-currency feature is integrated with multi-languages. So, it’s not possible to use WooCommerce Multilingual only for the multi-currency feature. What you are asking is popular. We are planning to separate the multi-currency functional to a different WooCommerce extension, but it’s not going to be available in the next few weeks.

  6. Hi

    With this pluginnis it possible to use a specified currency per catagory. Reason being is our main products have the currency set to P.G. and is more of a catalogue. But in our clearance catagory it would be useful to be able to use GBP (we dont tend to shop abroad)

    Does this plugin do that?

    Many thanks

    • Our plugin, WooCommerce Multilingual, is really not designed for this. I don’t think that you will manage to set it up this way.
