Hello,

When translating WooCommerce products with WPML all product translations share the same product details of the original product.

This means when using our WooCommerce Multilingual Addon those fields are blocked on the translated products on the WordPress Editor and not editable. WPML copies here the values for SKU, price, etc. from the original product.

In order to use products with different SKU or prices, you will need to create independent products in each language, which means these products would not be connected between each other or selectable with the language switcher.

Best regards
Andreas

Hello,

You need to go to your products list, switch the language filter to the second language, and open the product.

Then in the right sidebar, under Language set the field "This is a translation of:" to "None".

More details here:

When it comes to the question about the SKU I have made a test and it seems as if WooCommerce does not allow to use of the same SKU for two different products. Once you try to enter the same SKU twice on a different product it will not save the changes, but it will neither do when running WooCommerce without WPML.

I would suggest you consult WooCommerce Support about this and ask if there is a workaround for that.

Best regards
Andreas
