When I create a new WC product page in the default language (English), it is set by default to "Draft". Once finished setting up, I go to WooCommerce Multilingual to setup the language versions of this product page (French and German). I then save these language pages and go back to WooCommerce > Products and set the product page on "Published" and save.

Now usually I would expect the language pages to be automatically published at this point, without having to do anything else, but that is not the case. The product page appears on the other language pages, but it is still in English. I then have to go back in to WooCommerce Multilingual and save the products again, in order for them to appear in the correct language.

This is infuriating and so time consuming. I basically have to double save the product in WooCommerce Multilingual. Am I missing some setting? I want to be able to publish the default product page (English) and have the other language versions of this page also published correctly at the same time.

Thank you
