I'm trying to translate Category and product woocommerce multilingual.
At the end of the page there is a button "Synchronize Product categories assigment content"

I would like to know when and if I should use this synchro procedure.
Do I have to wait until I have completed the translations of all products?

I'm Italian
Site is : https;//italiafoodmarket.com

Hello,

sorry for waiting, we have a higher queue these days.

I would advise first translating all taxonomies then translating all products. Then you can run this option if you see some translated products do not have the correct category assigned.

But to run this option it is not needed to translate all products, it will scan and sync only for those which are translated.

This action lets you automatically apply the Category taxonomy to your content in different languages. It will scan the original content and apply the same taxonomy to translated content.

Also if you have first translated taxonomy and then translated products it should be all good.

I hope I was helpful. Don't hesitate to ask if you find any problem along the way, I'll gladly help you.

Regards,
Drazen

thanks,
I am translating the products in multilingual/product, when i translate a product, I see a symbol that is not the pen, what does it mean? it's all OK? (image)

Another question. The original language is English.
The translations are for the Italian and Swedish language.
I have translated the taxonomies into all languages.
Can I show the products in Italian without carrying out the translations? (and in the meantime I continue to translate the products)
Best Regard

Hello,

thanks for the reply.

1) That icon means the content is translated, but the translation needs updating, and a new translation is already in progress.

Everything is okay, it is just showing the status of the translation. You will need to click on the icon and translate the content 100%.

Please check our documentation and explanation of each icon:

- https://wpml.org/documentation/getting-started-guide/#translating-without-wpmls-translation-management

2) Yes, you can use our option for Displaying untranslated products in secondary languages.

WooCommerce Multilingual allows you to display product content in the default language when viewing the page in other languages. If a translation exists WooCommerce Multilingual displays it, otherwise, it displays product contents from the default language.

To enable it go to the WPML → Settings page. Here, scroll down to the Post Types Translation section and select the Translatable – use translation if available or fallback to default language option for Products.

Please check our documentation with step by step explanation:

I hope I was helpful. Don't hesitate to ask if you find any problem along the way, I'll gladly help you.
