Translating Shipping Rate Titles and Labels

Using WPML, you can translate two items from the Shipping tab. You can find both in the Shipping zones section.

The first one is the Method Title, which is the name of the shipping method displayed to customers.

The other is the Label added to any individual shipping rates you create.

Labels added to Table Rates

You can translate both items using WPML’s String Translation. In the example below, we’ll walk you through translating the Method Title:

  1. Go to WPML → String Translation and use the search bar to find your method title strings.
  2. Click the plus icon to add your translation and then hit enter to save it.

Using Multiple Currencies With Table Rate Shipping

WooCommerce Multilingual features a multi-currency mode that allows you to configure currencies based on language or the location of your customers. You can choose to display prices in each currency based on automatic or fixed exchange rates.

To enable and set up the multi-currency mode, go to WooCommerce → WooCommerce Multilingual and enter the Multi-currency tab.

Enabling the multi-currency mode in WooCommerce Multilingual

If you are using the multi-currency mode and the WooCommerce Table Rate Shipping extension, you don’t need to manually set table rates and shipping rules for each currency. WooCommerce Multilingual automatically calculates the prices based on the exchange rates.
