Thank you for contacting WPML Support. My apologies for the late reply.

As of now we do not have any guide on how to delete products and translations. But i can suggest the following.
Switch to "Native WooCommerce product editing screen" in WooCommerce->WooCommerce Multilingual->Product Translation Interface->WPML Translation Editor.
Then go to Products in each secondary language and remove the products.
Then switch to default language and remove the products.

Note that this will leave the media attached in the media library. So if you want to remove medias too, do the same start by secondary languages then remove medias from the default language.

I will also tell you about our suggest-a-feature page, you may want to ask this as a feature in next WCML versions.

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any doubts.

Best regards,
WPML Support
