Hi, i’m confused about using WMPL with woocommerce.

We have two languages: English EN (Default) and Chinese CN.

1. Product in different languages have different product ID. how can EN / CN products have the same ID? Important as we need to generate reports based on product ID and worried that stock quantities are all wrong (i.e. EN / CN products are for the same stock item, since different product id then stock levels in different languages wont update the product levels?).
2. Orders in EN & CN have same order idea. Good. No conflict there.
3. Bookings in EN & CN have different booking ID’s. if we update a booking in EN it does not update booking in CN. how can bookings be in sync. this is a big problem.

Please help as our orders are getting in a mess.

1. Can Products / stock levels be sync’d between different languages
2. Can Bookings be sync’d between different language.

If not can we turn off woocommerce multilingual and just run one language (EN/CN together) for woocommerce and WMPL for the rest of the site (posts / pages)?

Hi there,

Thanks for the update, I have set the custom fields _booking_date_start and _booking_date_end to copy to translation, Now the dates are updated properly when the booking is updated.

I have created a screencast of the fixed results please verify hidden link

I hope the issue is fixed now. Let me know if you need further assistance.

Kind regards

It seems to work on products which have a translation. for those products that dont have a translation, it does not work. guess that is logical. Thanks for the support. much appreciated.
