Hello,
We are having some problems with Variations on our website.

Our configuration:
- wordpress 3.3.1
- woocommerce 1.6.5.2
- woocommerce mutlilingual 1.4
- wpml 2.6.3

Currently our ecommerce is in 3 languages: English, Italian and French.
When we duplicate one product from English in the 2 other languages, the 2 products are created as "simple products" instead of "variable products". And everytime we update the first product we get the same problem.
Same problem if we edit the 2 duplicated products. If, for example, we update the Italian product then the French version cannot find the information about variations. Then, if we hit update the French product the correct information are restored (but acting like this will also update the Italian product, which should not be update).

Thanks

Hello Andrea,

Sounds frustrating - lets see what we can do here:

# Could you as first update the plugin versions of...
> "Woocommerce" to 1.6.6
> "Woocommerce Multilingual" with the version http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/woocommerce-multilingual/developers/ > Other versions > Development version

..and also...

> WordPress to version 3.5 ?

Please let me know if this makes any difference.

I am having the exact same problem: variable products are converted to simple products when they are translated.

I am using the latest versions of everything (WP 3.5, WPML 2.6.3, Woocommerce 1.6.6) and have tried updating to the development version of Woocommerce Multilingual, as suggested above.

I have been browsing this forum and it seems that many people are experiencing issues with WPML and Woocommerce variable products. Is anything being done to solve this problem?

Hello, we've updated WP and worked on a "clean" database, but:
- when we duplicate a product this is not a "variable" one unless we "update" it at least once. Images also are not displayed.
- if we edit the main product and if we have at least 2 duplicate products (I.e. Italian and English) the first duplicate doesn't display variations anymore (why only the first one?). In order to correct it we have to hit "update" again.

Thanks

Hello Andrea,

As you maybe have noticed I've added a new test-product "bbb" with translations and check several things now.
I've noticed that with adding translations of the product the type stays the same, however the actual attributes were not copied.
Is this part of your problem?

Hello Andreas,
it is only a part.
You should try adding variations and then translate the product.
Thanks

Hi,
I have also very big problems while translate variable products with woocommerce.
I create completely my product in French (main language).
I click on "+" to translate it in English.
I Put the "English Name" and click on "Save Draft".
WPML copy everything in English but variations are not correctly linked to French variations.
I can not change anything in translated variations.

See attached screen to understand.

Hi Harshad,
I removed completely old plugin and re-install the new one with your link.
I removed a product translation and empty trash.
I translate again from French to English.
My problem is still there. Variations are not correctly translated.
(variation image are not correct, colors attributes are not correct.
