Hello there,

Welcome to WPML support. I'd be assisting you further on this issue.

Are the category names included in the CSV file for import are correctly added, are you adding a slug of the categories?

Could you please provide a screenshot of your export settings?

Look forward to your reply.

Thanks

Hello there,

Could you please include the category slugs in the CSV and try it once?

Please make sure to only import and let me know if that helps.

Look forward to your reply.

Thanks

Hello there,

You can create a copy of your csv and only include one product and import it first.

Let me know if this helps.

Thanks
