I have a shop in three languages: swedish, norwegian and danish. The original language is swedish. After translating the shop to norwegian there is a problem on some swedish products with variations. When I want to select an attribute all the attributes are missing and I cannot select any variations which means I cannot add the product in my cart. When I update the product the problem is gone and the attributes are there again. But now, all of a sudden the problem is back and I don't know why. It is a frustrating problem because it appears so randomy and when I think it is solved it suddenly comes back again.

Hello, thank you for contact us. I will try to do my best to help you.

I would suggest you update to the latest version of WooCommerce, WPML and WPML add-ons like WooCommerce Multilingual. Also, you can find an easy way to synchronize attributes going to WooCommerce -> WooCommerce Multilingual -> Attributes tab, and then clicking on Synchronize attributes and update product variations button.

Please let me know if this solves the issue or if you need further details.

Have a good day.

Hello! I would like to wait with updating for a while. I have used the synchronize function but it does not work. On some attributes it gets stuck in the process.

Hello again, in order to keep debugging we need to update the plugins. One thing that you can do is install your site in a staging server or even in your local computer, update there, and check if everything works fine. You can use the Duplicator plugin to get a full copy of your site.

Thank you.
