I am trying to: list a product category for secondary language. Products are not shown, even I'm using " Translatable - use translation if available or fallback to default language" in settings. They can be accessed individually, but trying to list them "by category" in a block is not possible. Only manually translated are shown, but manually translating I loose some images due to wooCommerce incompatibility with a plugin.

Link to a page where the issue can be seen:
(original language)
hidden link
(secondary language. Only manually translated is shown)
hidden link

As you can see, products exists, but are not listed in blocks:
hidden link
hidden link

hidden link
hidden link

I'm using DIVI. But event with original WooCommerce blocks, problem persist.

I expected to see:
All products for a certain category of a secondary language, even they are not manually translated.

Instead, I got:
An empty list...

1. Translatable - use translation if available or fallback to default language
When you are listing "by category", then the taxonomy term should also be using the setting "Translatable - use translation if available or fallback to default language"

Is this set as such?

Please remember that this translation setting is only affecting how the products appear on the frontend. If a selection is done in the backend/programatically, nothing will be found. So, the cases where this setting can be used does have restrictions.

2. Diagnostic Test
After setting the taxonomy term to be "..appear as tranlsated"
If you delete the translation of the term "eyewear" and then attempt to list products with this URL:
hidden link

Do you see the products you expect?
