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.
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.
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.
