Hi! sorry to reopen this discussion.
I don't have the WooCommerce option in my dropdown (see images).

Could you help, please?
I only need this done, because, for some reason, even after selecting the default language for the site, all the WooCommerce strings are still in English rather than Latvian (default language for the site).

Thanks in advance 🙂
