When using Woocommerce and WPML with tour theme, this result in a WPML error:

«We detected that the product_type field was set incorrectly for some product translations. This happened because the product_type taxonomy was translated. You can fix this in the WooCommerce Multilingual troubleshooting page.»

What I found the solution :

This line should be removed:
<taxonomy translate=”1″>product_type</taxonomy> in the wpml-config.wml file.

My Question :

If I update this plugin I think again this XML file will updated automatically.

So please suggest.

Hi There,

if that happens you could always go to WPML->Settings->Custom XML Configuration and add the following

        <taxonomy translate="0">product_type</taxonomy>

let me know your results please

Please go to your plugins , deactivate WPML main plugin and WPML translation management

and download the latest versions from here then re install them

this should resolve this issue. There are some libraries missing as you can see in the console error but it should be resolved with a fresh re install of the plugins WPML and Translation Management

let me know your results please
