I have many problems to translate products Variations on a website.

My configuration:
- wordpress 3.5.1
- woocommerce 1.6.6
- woocommerce mutlilingual 1.4
- wpml

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.

Thank you for mentioning this to us!

Hi First month without any solution Yet 🙁

Please give us an ETA for the plugin to work correctly.

My client is not happy and he's going to start something with a lawyer.
They absolutely need their site to work in other languages. If their site is not ready in a few days they will lose a lot of sales with their seasonal businesses. They take order now for one year business.

As paid member of WPML we can not accept so big delay for issues like this post.

Please answer. We need to know what's happening. If you can not resolve this i will be forced to create a new wordpress website (without WPML) in the language i need. I will not be paid for this workaround 🙁

Please be professional and give yourself the possibility to resolve this as fast as possible.

Thank you,

Hello Dimitri,

Please accept our apologies!
The official release of the new "Woocommerce-Multilingual" plugin takes longer than expected since coincidentally Woocommerce released their version 2.+ and we want to make our plugin compatible with these versions as well.

Nonetheless, we have an improved development version, available here hidden link
Could you install it and let me know if it improves things?

      We have released a version of WooCommerce multilingual that works well with WooCommerce 2.0 and variations.
      Can you please upgrade WCML to latest version 2.0?

      March 22, 2013 at 10:14 am #114042


      Hi Harshad,
      I've upgraded all my extensions and woocommerce to V 2.0.4.
      My problem is still there 🙁

      Variable products swatches do not fit each product. In my case, you see a white shirt when it should be Sky blue.
      See attached printscreen. After translations, i still have a wrong image. It is correct in main language.

      Not resolved.

      Reopen it
      Thank you

      I copy here my question that i've post on another threat

      "The biggest problem i see for now is that _thumbnail_id are not correctly copied to variable products. Thumbnails for variations do not fit descriptions after translation.
      Do not forget that it is possible to sort variation manually by Drag and Drop in variations Tab for variable products."

      Maybe your loop is not looping correctly ?

      Could you please give me an ETA ?
      Very critical for me and many other users.
      Thank you.
