I have a WooCommerce webshop with +500 products in Danish, that i need to translate to English.

I tried to export all products as XLIFF files and then edit them, but it takes too much time, just like the build in Translation Manager.

Would it be possible to open all files (XLIFF, PO, whatever) at once in eg. Excel or PO Editor and then translate?

Hi and thank you for contacting WPML Support!

I will be happy to help you with this.

Unfortunately, there are no other options to bulk-translate except the ones mentioned in the tickets below (however, these ones should help you move a bit faster):

- https://wpml.org/forums/topic/faster-way-to-translate-products/
- https://wpml.org/forums/topic/bulk-translate-same-8400-products-and-1200-categories/
- https://wpml.org/forums/topic/how-to-bulk-duplicate-all-translations-from-one-language-to-another/

I also suggest that you add this as a feature request in the link below:

I hope that you will find this information helpful.

Kind regards,
Mihai Apetrei

Hi Nicolaj.

Yes, it will take some time to translate those products - probably the fastest way would be to duplicate all of them first in all the languages and then edit them manually.

I am really sorry that there is no other option that we have available for the moment but it will be amazing if you can take a few minutes to share your recommendation through the suggest-a-feature form so that the feature will be recorded in our developer's features list.

We are constantly working on improving our products and we care to see what are the features that our users require the most.

Also, can you please mark this ticket as resolved?

Thank you for your understanding.

Kind regards,
Mihai Apetrei
