I am trying to:
create a new product in woocommerce. I create it from the main language and then I create the product for the secondary languages from the main language.

I expected to see:
Some woocommerce fields are not editable like Price, SKU, Stock,... because took from the main language.

Instead, I got:
For the stock field, it's not editable but set as 0 for the secondary languages.
Only for my new product, not for the older ones (even if I reupdate an old product, the stock is still good in the secondary language) so it seems happenning only for the new products.

When I check some information online, I've seen I should check Status in Woo Commerce multilingual (screenshot). It seems the field "stock" has an issue.
But I don't know how to fix it.

If I check in the custom fields, I don't see "stock" anymore.
Could you help me to resolve this issue?

Thanks in advance

Best regards

PS: I know I don't have the latest versions of WordPress and WPML but it's on purpose and it was working well before with the configuration I have 🙁

it's pretty urgent issue as it's on my live website and some products are now available only in specific language. Would you have some tips or tests I can do?
I tried to create a new product and I've still the same problem
Best regards

Hello Bigul,

Thank you for your feedback.
I didn't do any changes in the *wpml-config.xml* file of *wp-content/plugins/woocommerce-multilingual* recently and the trouble shouting had the opposite effect has it was 0 stock in the secondary languages, it put also 0 for the main language.
I've finally updated all the plugins and it's working well now.
Just it's not so practical because I would expect everything can still run smoothly without updating each time there is a new version available because it's lots of non regression tests to do
Thanks for your support
Best regards
