Ok, now variations are translated but there is still a problem, after duplicate the variations are not immediately available but you must press "update" twice(!) for each language (if you don't update the variations are not visible).

It is exactly what I do.
I can see variations but they do not match variations in main language.
In my case, I have 2 variations. Color and size.
First variation is by example size 6 color white.
In translated variation, size 6 is linked to size 8 color blue.
On the blue variation it show white image.

Do you understand.
I can send access to concerned website if you want. You can see it with your own eyes.

I am also having some serious issues with the translation of variables.

Sometimes the translation of a product doesn't even show up if I've not set that the product should be translated independently.

This is causing my client a great deal of stress, and I'm getting my ass whooped almost every day now. 🙁

I am experiencing all the problems the guys have written about in this thread.

I'm having the same problem. I've looked on the forum and it seemed like this issue is going on for months now.

95 % of the reason why I bought WPML was exactly for this purpose. And I can't do it. It also looks like lots of other users are expierencing the same issue.

Please fix this or you cannot state "Works with WooCommerce". Because Variable Products are a HUGE part of WooCommerce.

Thank you.

Hi @adriano,
Do you have any ETA for the new version of Woocommerce Multilingual ?
I'm getting late for a project.

I didn't plan that woocommerce Multilingual didn't work with variable product 🙁

Thank you for your answer.

This issue is no at breaking point with my client who has lost many sales and the problems with wpml and woocommerce has greatly damaged their reputation as a online merchant and are considering sueing my company as I have sold them a solution that promised to be compatible with woocommerce and multilingual content.

It is clear that wpml plugin does not work with woocommerce and the fact this was stated was greatly misleading as I purchased it, made promises to my clients on the basis of the plugins specifications.

This is not just a "bug" in the system, this is something we who have business depend on working in relations to our clients and when it doesn't it's not only pur clients business that suffers but ours aswell and our livelyhood, beeing able to get paid, pay rent, buy food etc.

I really hope making wpml compatible with all aspects of woocommerce is a priority.

Could someone from WPML give us some updates concerning this post ?
No news for more than 2 weeks now 🙁
Thank you.

Hi Arshad

I have the same problem. My variations are not showing up. I cannot select them.
Variations I make in Dutch are not showing in frenc (ex. variation 1 and 2 in dutch. I can only select "choose variation" in French). Help?

Hello there,

would any rep here please give us all an update? We are dealing with quite disappointed clients at the moment and we are turning that way ourselves as we cannot see any light at the end of this tunnel.
We have absolutely NO IDEA of how much time you still need to fix the issue your silent does not really sound really encouraging.

Failing to provide a working release is causing all of us lots of problems with our clients – do you guys understand this?

Would you please be so very kind to provide us with a precise ETA?

Looking forward to your kind (and immediate) reply.
