Hi, why don't WPML Woocommerce Multilingual correct the currency symbol ? As all currency symbol showing $, which is totally wrong. Secondly, when I change the currency, the value change but the price symbol on the woocommerce still showing $ even though I used the custom code below.

add_filter( 'woocommerce_currencies', 'add_my_currency' );

function add_my_currency( $currencies ) {
$currencies['EUR'] = __( 'Euro', 'woocommerce' );
return $currencies;

add_filter('woocommerce_currency_symbol', 'add_my_currency_symbol', 10, 2);

function add_my_currency_symbol( $currency_symbol, $currency ) {
switch( $currency ) {
case 'EUR': $currency_symbol = '€'; break;
return $currency_symbol;

Hi, this issue is resolved, because there was a conflict with another currency switcher, after I disable it then it works. But the currency value response for shipping price using the AJAX is still showing the $ rather than the €

Also is there a way to make the currency change request as part of the url such as
and not as parameter query request /?wcmlc=EUR because this will disable the WP Super Cache functionality.

Hey William,

Thank you for reaching out the WPML support!

You did a good job about finding out that one of the plugins was causing the issue about the currency symbol. Well done!

Now, regarding the currency change, I'm afraid that you cannot change the way it works. I understand that you'd like to have as part of the URL but this kind of change would require the change of a big part of the plugin logic. For now, this is the only way that the currency change works.
