Wel it's plain and simple. the Product-category slug doesn't translate.
All woocommerce permalinks are changed. So a 404 error is shown.

I tried everything on this forum. A lot of people have issues with this.

This works (dutch):
hidden link

This doesn't (english):
hidden link

But when I alter the URL it works:
hidden link

I just need it to work properly.
I'm even willing to pay for this support. Since this site needs to be working a.s.a.p.

Dear Erik,

Are WPML and WordPress latest version? If not please update.

Thanks for the reply.

They where both latest versions. But I just read the article about the "patched" version of woocommerce which was necessary. So I've installed that version.
It now fixed the URL's.

But now the categories don't show the available languages.
So instead of Dutch, English and German. Only the current language is displayed.

Products do show all 3.

Woopdidoo, got it working.

For anyone with the same problem, this is what I did:

Had to delete the product category translations, and create new translations.
Then assign the products to the new translated categories.

It works.
