I have created some products with translations via code. the different languages have different custom product attribute keys and values, so I want to edit them separately per product.

To achieve this I switched back to the native Woocommerce product edit screen, and clicked the "edit separately" button. Now I see lock icons before all attributes.

How can I overwrite this so I can edit attributes per product.

If this is not possible, is there a way to only connect products, so on the front-end, you can switch to different languages, but keep all products separate?

Hello,
Thank you for contacting WPML support.

I'm truly sorry but I don't understand the issue 🙁

Can you please elaborate a little more so I can better understand?

Kind regards,
Carlos

I want to be able to edit the custom attributes per language in the product itself. The custom attributes are different per store ( not only the value but also the name of the attribute. ). As you can see in the provided screenshot, all custom product attributes are locked, so I cant change them.

The basic question is, how can I make it that I can edit these attributes in this screen per language without syncing them.

Kind regards,

Dennis

Hi there,
Thank you for your answer.

In the documentation you will find that is not possible to remove the lock icons as this information can only be edited in the products in the original language. For the translations the information gets locked.

If you desire to translate the attributes then you need to follow the steps provided in the documentation.

Regards,
Carlos

Hi Carlos,

That’s bad news. Is it possible to disable the translate feature from WPML and only use WPML to link the different language products so that the different languages are shown in the menu?

Hi,

Due to the fact that it's not possible to link products within WPML, it seems -unfortunately- that for now you need custom programming work which is beyond the scope of our support.

At this point I would suggest you consider contacting one of our certified partners from this link: http://wpml.org/documentation/support/wpml-contractors/

Before doing so please have a look also here:
http://wpml.org/documentation/support/wpml-contractors/guidelines-for-people-looking-for-consulting-help/

You will get the custom assistance you need to get on with your project.

Thank you very much for your patience and understanding.
Best regards,
Carlos
