Tell us what you are trying to do?
I used WPML to translate products in woocommerce. Products will have the same name and tags so I use duplicate options, but when I do that product description will duplicate too, can I make mass duplicate but without product description?

Is there any documentation that you are following?
Is there a similar example that we can see?

What is the link to your site?
hidden link main language
hidden link second language

Thank you for contacting WPML support. I'll be happy to help you with this.

If you are duplicating a product, all of the content will be the same for the original and the translation. If you want to translate only the product description, you can click "Translate Independently" and translate only the product description.

If you don't want to translate the product description, you can go to WPML -> settings and in the Custom Fields section, click Show System Fields. Search for the product description field and set it to "Don't Translate".

Please let me know if you need any further assistance and I will be happy to help.
